Alfa Laval wins SEK 100 million starch processing order in Russia

Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order to supply equipment to a Russian processing plant. The order, booked in the Process Industry segment, has a value of approximately SEK 100 million and delivery is scheduled for 2014. 

Alfa Laval’s equipment, including separators, decanters, heat exchangers, evaporators and fluid handling products, will form a complete process line for extracting starch and gluten from wheat for further downstream production of sweeteners and animal feed additives.

“This order reflects the good development we have seen in Russia for a while now. It also proves our strong position within starch processing, based on our complete product offering and deep process know-how,” says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group.

Did you know that… in 1903 Alfa Laval was established in Russia and that it opened a joint factory with Alfred Nobel in St. Petersburg four years later?
