Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order to supply waste heat recovery systems to a power plant in El Salvador. The order has a value of approximately SEK 95 million and is booked in the Boiler Systems unit of the Marine Division. Deliveries are scheduled for 2020.
The order comprises exhaust gas heat recovery boilers to be installed in an engine power plant where they will recover waste heat to be used in the electricity generation process.
“Our reliable and efficient boiler systems re-use waste heat and makes it possible to produce additional electricity from the same energy source. This has a positive impact on our customers bottom line – and it is good for the environment,” says Sameer Kalra, President of the Marine Division.
These boilers are able to recover nearly 115 MW otherwise wasted thermal energy – and when turned into electricity it will meet the annual electricity consumption of 200 000 people in El Salvador.
