(PRESS RELEASE) LUND, Sweden, 14-Jan-2020 — /EuropaWire/ — Alfa Laval to supply Alfa Laval Packinox heat exchangers to a petrochemical plant in China. The order is worth approximately EUR 12 million (SEK 125 million) of which around EUR 6 million (SEK 65 million) was booked late December, 2019, and the remaining EUR 5.6 million (SEK 60 million) in January, in the Welded Heat Exchanger unit of the Energy Division. The order is scheduled to be delivered in 2020.
The order includes compact heat exchangers for energy recovery in the petrochemical process which converts mixed xylenes into more valuable high-purity paraxylene, a product utilized in the chain of manufacturing of synthetic fibers.
