Alfa-Laval of Fort Lee, N.J., one of the world leaders in liquid separation, thermal, and continuous process technology recently announced it has been chosen by U.S. Lines, Inc. to supply all of the fuel and lube purifiers plus other equipment for 12 jumbo containerships.
The U.S. Lines' contract for the 12 vessels is valued at $570-million and is, according to industry sources, the biggest maritime order in recent history.
Alfa-Laval will be supplying 84 centrifugal separators for fuel and lube purification plus fresh water generators and plate heat exchangers for central cooling systems.
Robert E. Wiltz, senior vice president and general manager in charge of the Alfa-Laval Industry Group, said the equipment order will exceed $4-million and is subject to final approval by the government of South Korea, where the ships will be built.
"The combination of state-of-theart Alfa-Laval equipment and new diesel engines will provide significant fuel economies in the operation of these huge vessels," explained Mikael Ugander, vice president and general manager of the Alfa-Laval Separation Engineering Group. "Our technology will permit the burning of the lowest grade bunker fuel." Mr. Ugander said the containerships will be "longer than three football fields"—950 feet long by 106 feet wide.
Alfa-Laval, Inc. is part of the international Alfa-Laval Group headquartered in Sweden. The U.S.
company, headquartered in Fort Lee, N.J., was established in 1883 to supply centrifugal equipment to dairy farms for continuous cream separation. Today, that original technology continues to find broader application, including food and dairy processing, power generation, chemical processing, and pollution control.
