Alfa Laval wins big orders from Petrobras

By Gerald Ondrey |

Alfa Laval (Lund, Sweden; www.alfalaval.com) has received two orders for Alfa Laval Packinox heat exchangers from Petrobras in Brazil. The total value is about SEK 55 million and was booked late June 2009. The delivery is scheduled for 2011.   The Alfa Laval Packinox heat exchangers will be used for heat recovery within the reforming process — one of the main processes within a petroleum refinery.   “It is encouraging to see that our refinery customers continue to invest”, says Lars Renström, president and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group. “It also confirms our position as a strong partner to Petrobras.”   Alfa Laval has been cooperating with Petrobras for more than 25 years supplying equipment for different stages of the oil production process; from extraction to refining.   In January, Petrobras announced their Business Plan for 2009–2013 where they envisaged total investments of $174.4 billion during the period, which is an increase by 55% compared to the Business Plan 2008–2012.
