Alfa Laval wins SEK 240 million offshore pumping systems order in South Korea
Alfa Laval – a specialist in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order to supply Framo pumping systems to Samsung Heavy Industries in South Korea. The order, booked in the Marine & Offshore Pumping Systems segment, has a value of approximately SEK 240 million (€26.1 million) and delivery is scheduled for 2015.
The order is comprised of offshore pumping systems for an FPSO (Floating Production Storage and Offloading vessel). The vessel is commissioned by Total S.A. and will be built by Samsung. Once completed, the vessel will be anchored outside the Nigerian coast.
‘I am pleased to announce the first large order for offshore pumping systems since the Framo brand was included in our offering through the acquisition of Frank Mohn AS,’ says Lars Renström, president and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group. ‘These products fit very well into our portfolio of reliable and efficient products for the marine and offshore oil and gas market.’
