Alfa Laval wins EUR128 million Chinese order

17 November 2009

Swedish manufacturer Alfa Laval has won a significant order to supply plate heat exchangers (PHEs) and filters for cooling duties in two new nuclear reactors scheduled for installation in China.

The equipment will be installed in a reactor island cooling system where sea water will be used to cool a closed loop cooling water circuit providing fresh cooling water to various parts of the reactor plant.

China has an ambitious energy plan in place which calls for an additional 700 GWe of electricity generating capacity to be installed by 2020, doubling its current capacity. Of this figure, roughly 5%, approximately 60 GWe, is scheduled to be provided by nuclear power plants which will entail doubling the current number of plants.
