Alfa Laval, a leading international leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling, has signed an agreement on the supply to land-based waste heat recovery units with a Chinese system designer. Alfa Laval has long been supplying large marine waste heat recovery systems. This newly designed device Alfa Laval Micro, is slightly smaller and targets land-based applications in particular. The framework agreement signals that the new solution has been accepted early on by the market. The agreement spans over two years and includes the delivery to power plants in Asia of Alfa Laval Micro units. When they are installed, waste heat will be retrieved to produce hot water for additional electricity generation. The new device recovers ample heat to increase the power output by 6% to 8%.

The President of the Energy Division Susanne Pahlen Aklundh said that, this latest app of Alfa Laval is quite interesting. For decades they have experimented with waste heat recycling approaches and complemented the new Alfa Laval Micro WHR unit. This product can collect heat and transform it into additional power from any source with warm exhaust gases such as power plants. This is good for their consumers and the world. The two-year framework agreement amounts to SEK 60 million over 2021, which is split between 50/50. Some SEK 30 million had already been booked in the Energy Division’s Gasketed Plate Heat Exchangers unit in the first quarter of 2020. Energy recovery (and reuse) is crucial for industrial process energy efficiency. The main contribution to the Paris Agreement is supposed to be energy conservation.
