Sweden: Alfa Laval to Supply Equipment for World’s First FLNG Facility

Sweden - Alfa Laval to Supply Equipment for World’s First FLNG Facility

Alfa Laval, a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling, has won an order from a Technip Samsung Consortium (TSC) to supply Alfa Laval equipment to Shell’s Prelude FLNG facility.

FLNG opens up new business opportunities for countries looking to develop their gas resources, bringing more natural gas to the market and Shell is the first to go ahead with an FLNG project, Prelude FLNG.

The Alfa Laval equipment consists of desalination units, heat exchangers and filters. The desalination units will convert sea water into fresh water to be used for steam generation, process water and potable water. The heat exchangers will use seawater in the vital cooling applications in the gas liquefaction process.

We are very proud to be part of this technology breakthrough in the energy field”, says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group. “This order confirms our strong position as a reliable partner to the major players in the oil and gas industry.”

The Prelude facility being built by the TSC at the Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard in Geoje, Korea will measure 488 meters from bow to stern and weighing around 600,000 tones when fully loaded. It will be moored over 200 kilometers from land in Western Australia and will produce gas from offshore subsea fields, treat and liquefy it onboard via a cooling process before storing and exporting the LNG via conventional LNG carriers.
