Taking place June 4-7 at Norges Varemesse in Oslo, Nor-Shipping is an international forum for Northern European maritime industry. At the Alfa Laval stand in Hall E, visitors will find a comprehensive approach to easing financial and regulatory pressures, with solutions for energy efficiency and extending performance at the forefront.

Today’s marine industry faces difficult and conflicting challenges, especially when it comes to energy. As rising fuel prices and shrinking margins create a push to reduce fuel consumption, environmental laws and other regulations are necessitating fuel changes and increasing the amount of energy-consuming equipment on board. Achieving a profitable balance takes a combination of new thinking, deep experience and wide reach – which is exactly what Alfa Laval will display at Nor-Shipping.

The Alfa Laval stand will feature energy solutions like PureDry, which offers the win-win scenario of minimizing fuel waste volumes while returning usable fuel. But energy advantages will also be prominent in systems beyond the fuel line. Examples include waste heat recovery systems, whose energy-reclaiming capabilities are as relevant for auxiliary engines as they are for main engines, and the new PureBallast 3.0, which provides energy savings of up to 60% over previous versions.

Supporting these solutions are Alfa Laval’s vast expertise and global backing, which ensure that immediate energy savings pave the way for long-term operating economy. The Alfa Laval Parts & Service offering will be another strong focus at Nor-Shipping, allowing visitors to explore the benefits of extending performance: maximum uptime, availability and optimization.

Exhibition highlights

•Speaker’s Corner
A new format called Speaker’s Corner will be active throughout the exhibition. The brief presentations of products and cases in Speaker’s Corner will provide key insights into energy opportunities, application thinking and Alfa Laval expertise.

•T35 gasketed plate heat exchanger
Among the presentations in Speaker’s Corner will be an exclusive introduction to the new T35 gasketed plate heat exchanger, which will not otherwise be on display. The T35 represents the biggest transformation of gasketed plate heat exchangers since Alfa Laval introduced the concept of central cooling systems for marine and offshore industries some 30 years ago.

•PureBallast 3.0
The system that first led the way in ballast water treatment is once again defining the cutting edge. PureBallast 3.0 is the new generation of leading technology, improved with the knowledge only real-world experience provides. Though 50% smaller than its predecessors, it uses up to 60% less energy and handles flows of up to 6000 m3/h. What remain the same are the type-approved performance and Alfa Laval’s full global backing.

The PureDry waste oil treatment system, which signals a paradigm shift in separator design, reduces waste oil volumes by 99%. PureDry recovers fuel oil from a dedicated waste fuel oil collection tank, returning it to the bunker tank for reuse after normal treatment. For the ship owner, this means a reduction of up to 2% in the total volume of fuel oil consumed – and a corresponding reduction in the ship’s fuel bill.

•PureSOx exhaust gas cleaning system
Is your ship or fleet prepared for 1 January 2015? If not, it’s time to look at your options. PureSOx from Alfa Laval is an alternative to the high cost of running on low-sulphur MGO. It reduces harmful emissions by scrubbing sulphur from the exhaust gas of vessels operating on HFO. PureSOx is a hybrid system that runs in either seawater or freshwater mode, and it is the largest system currently in operation (21 MW).

•Waste heat recovery systems
Alfa Laval’s Aalborg waste heat recovery systems deliver documented fuel savings while cutting CO2 emissions by up to 12%. The systems are not limited to working with main engine exhaust, but can also be applied the auxiliary engines. This allows even eco-ships to meet steam needs without resorting to the oil-fired boiler, despite their generally lower exhaust gas temperatures.

•Aalborg KBM burner
Alfa Laval’s Aalborg KBM is a pressure-atomizing burner designed for the continuous modulating operation of Aalborg OS-TCi and OC-TCi boilers. By helping to maintain uniform combustion, it both improves heat transfer efficiency and reduces the fouling of convection surfaces. A unique air damper accurately controls the airflow and minimizes draft loss during boiler shutdown.

•S Separator 9 series
The latest version of Alfa Laval’s groundbreaking S separator combines proven Alfa Laval benefits like Alcap technology with a wide range of technical innovations. The result is lower energy consumption, lower oil losses, lower lifecycle cost and a smaller footprint.
