Alfa Laval to supply pumping systems for two North Sea platforms
Alfa Laval, a provider of specialized products and engineering solutions, has won two orders to supply Framo pumping systems to oil platforms in the North Sea.
Alfa Laval said on Tuesday that the orders had a combined value of approximately SEK 175 million ($19.2 million).
The company added that the bookings were made in the Pumping Systems unit of the Marine Division, with deliveries scheduled for 2019.
The orders comprise offshore pumping systems for firewater and injection of seawater into the production wells in order to optimize the extraction of oil.
Peter Leifland, president of the Marine Division, said: “I am pleased to announce these large orders for our Framo pumping systems. Framo pumping systems are used in a variety of duties where they provide safe and reliable performance.”
The last time Framo pumping systems were ordered for an oil platform in the North Sea was back in late March. The contract was worth a little less than this latest deal and stood at SEK 170 million ($18.6 million at current rates).
