Alfa Laval Water Treatment System Ordered for MAN EGR System
Alfa Laval wins groundbreaking marine environmental order from MAN Diesel & Turbo for its PureNox Water Treatment System.
The Alfa Laval PureNOx Water treatment system (WTS) is developed together with MAN Diesel & Turbo to be integrated in their Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) process to reduce the NOx emissions from ship main engines. The Alfa Laval WTS will clean the circulating scrubber water to protect the EGR system, and also clean the excess water formed during combustion before it is discharged overboard.
This is the first commercial order from MAN Diesel & Turbo to supply Alfa Laval PureNOx water treatment systems to be integrated in a process to
reduce harmful nitrogen oxides (NOx) emission onboard vessels.
The order is worth approximately SEK 7 million and delivery is scheduled for 2013.
“This is a groundbreaking order in many ways; It is our first commercial order for Alfa Laval PureNOx water treatment system and it will be integrated in a new solution on the market which fully complies with the upcoming regulations – and the order is from the world’s leading provider of low speed diesel engines”, says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group. “The order also confirms our position as an innovative supplier of marine environmental solutions.”
Alfa Laval is a leading provider of specialized products and engineering solutions based on its key technologies of heat transfer, separation and fluid handling.
