Alfa Laval (STO:ALFA) – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order for compact heat exchangers to a nuclear power plant in Russia. The order, booked in Energy & Environment segment late December, has a value of approximately SEK 90 million (approx US$14 million) and delivery is scheduled to start in 2014 and be finalized in 2016.

The Alfa Laval heat exchangers will be used in safety systems for cooling the reactor units in the nuclear power plant, to ensure reliable operation.
