Alfa Laval to supply pumping systems for North Sea platform

Sweden’s Alfa Laval has said it has won an order to supply Framo pumping systems to an oil platform in the North Sea.

Alfa Laval said on Tuesday that the order, placed by an unnamed client, had a value of approximately SEK 60 million ($6.72 million).

According to the company, it is booked in the pumping systems unit of the Marine Division with deliveries scheduled for 2018.

The order comprises of offshore pumping systems, which will supply water to the onboard fire extinguishing system.

Peter Leifland, president of the marine division, said: “I am very pleased to announce this large order for our Framo pumping systems. Their proven capacity and reliability makes them highly suitable for the tough conditions offshore.”

Since March, Alfa Laval received four orders for Framo systems. It started with an $8.4 million-valued order for installation on a floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) vessel to be built in China.

The second order was for Framo pumping systems and emergency generators to an oil platform in the North Sea worth $20.8 million while the third was for systems for a floating liquid natural gas (FLNG) vessel to be built in South Korea worth $6 million.

The latest Framo pumping systems order was for a floating production storage offloading (FPSO) vessel in the North Sea in early April.
