A baby food manufacturer in India and a natural gas project in Qatar will be using Alfa Laval equipment in their operations.
Alfa Laval, a heat transfer equipment maker headquartered in Lund, Sweden,
will supply a nearly $15 million process line for the baby food plant. The
order, scheduled for 2014 delivery, includes multiple Alfa Laval product, such
as heat exchangers and flow equipment, for mixing, heating and cooling
operations. India has about 159 million children under age six, accounting for
13 percent of India's population. About one fourth of them live in urban areas.
A Japanese engineering firm placed the $13 million heat exchanger order for
the Middle East gas project, which is scheduled for 2012 completion. JGC Corp.,
Yokohama, Japan, ordered various heat exchanger units for the Barzan Onshore
gas plant, located in Ras Laffan Industrial City, north of Doha, the capital of
Qatar. The heat exchangers will be used for recovering energy in the gas-cleaning
process and for process cooling of the overall gas plant. Qatar's oil and
natural gas industries account for more than 50 percent of the country’s GDP,
85 percent of export earnings and 70 percent of the government's revenue.
