Sweden: Alfa Laval Records First Order of Its PureSOx Systems

Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won its first order to supply Alfa Laval PureSOx exhaust gas cleaning systems.

The order, booked in the Marine & Offshore Systems segment late December 2012, has a value of approximately SEK 60 million. Delivery is scheduled for 2013. Due to a confidentiality agreement Alfa Laval is unable to disclose the name of the customer or other details about the order.

IMO’s convention for the reduction of sulphur oxides (SOx) will affect all vessels, i.e. new as well as existing. The convention, ratified and implemented in some Emission Control Areas (ECAs), demands that sulphur emission levels in these ECAs should be 0.1 percent from year 2015 and from 2020 the global emission level must not exceed 0.5 percent. To reach these levels a ship owner can either use more expensive low sulphur fuel or, on vessels where it is suitable, continue running on heavy fuel oil and invest in a scrubber – such as the Alfa Laval PureSOx.
