Alfa Laval (STO:ALFA) – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order for heat exchangers from an aluminum production company in India. The order value is about SEK 65 million and final delivery is scheduled for 2010.
The Alfa Laval heat exchangers will be used in an early stage of the process where ore is heated up under high pressure to start the extraction of alumina. The extracted alumina is later treated in separate smelting facilities to produce aluminum.
“We have seen a good development of this business over the past two years. This is our second large order in six months to the Indian aluminum industry”, says Lars Renström, CEO and President of the Alfa Laval Group.
Did you know that Alfa Laval has been involved in production of aluminum since the 1950’s and is today delivering equipment for almost all stages of the production process?
