Alfa Laval, a maker of heat transfer equipment has received a $34.4 million order from Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd., Tokyo, for waste-heat recovery systems on board sea-going vessels.

Built with Alfa Laval’s Aalborg exhaust gas economizers, the heat recovery system will use the exhaust gases from the main engine to produce steam for the turbine to generate electrical power. The system has been developed in close cooperation with main engine and turbine suppliers for optimum performance and flexibility, and covers the electrical demand onboard a ship without operation of any of the generator sets.

“This order is interesting in many ways – it is one of our largest so far, it includes newly acquired products and involves a couple of major players in the marine industry,” says Lars Renström, Alfa Laval Group’s president and CEO. Alfa Laval is headquartered in Lund, Sweden.

Delivery is scheduled to begin this year and be finalized during 2014.
