“The new division will have a broad assortment of products with strong market positions,” said Peter Leifland, who has been appointed head of Alfa Laval Marine & Diesel. “Furthermore, the increase in seaborne trade contributes to creating a solid base for further growth.”
The Alfa Laval Marine & Diesel division includes Marine & Offshore Systems, Marine & Diesel Equipment and Parts & Service. Marine & Offshore Systems covers global new sales of Alfa Laval Aalborg’s boilers, inert gas systems, waste heat recovery units and floating production systems to marine and offshore customers. Marine & Diesel Equipment includes global new sales of Alfa Laval’s traditional product range as well as the Alfa Laval Aalborg waste heat recovery units to diesel customers.
More than one third of the division’s order intake comes from the aftermarket and more than 10% from the land-based diesel power market. Environmental applications account for a growing portion of orders.
Alfa Laval now has three divisions: Equipment, Process Technology and Marine & Diesel.
