Alfa Laval pumping systems ordered for FPSO to be built in China
Alfa Laval, a provider of specialized products and engineering solutions, has won an order to supply Framo pumping systems to a floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) vessel to be built in China.
Alfa Laval said on Wednesday that the order had a value of approximately SEK 70 million ($8.4 million).
According to the company, it is booked in the Pumping Systems unit of the Marine Division, with deliveries scheduled for 2018.
Peter Leifland, president of the Marine Division, said: “I am very pleased to announce yet another large offshore order for our Framo pumping systems. The order proves that we can meet the high demands of reliable equipment from the customers in the offshore industry.”
The Swedish company did not reveal the name of the client nor the name of the FPSO.
Offshore Energy Today has reached out to Alfa Laval seeking details regarding the FPSO. The company’s spokesperson could not disclose any further details due to contract conditions.
This is a second contract in quick succession for Alfa Laval. Last week, the company won an order to supply both Framo pumping systems and emergency generators to an oil platform in the North Sea. This order was valued at approximately SEK 170 million ($20.8 million).
