Alfa Laval pumps for world’s largest FPSO

Alfa Laval, a Swedish company specialising in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling, has won an order to supply Framo pumping systems to Samsung Heavy Industries in South Korea.

The order, booked in the Marine & Offshore Pumping Systems segment, has a value of approximately SEK 240 million ($34.57 million) and delivery is scheduled for 2015.

The order is comprised of offshore pumping systems for an FPSO (Floating Production Storage and Offloading vessel). The vessel is commissioned by Total S.A. and will be built by Samsung. Once completed, the vessel will be anchored outside the Nigerian coast.

“I am pleased to announce the first large order for offshore pumping systems since the Framo brand was included in our offering through the acquisition of Frank Mohn AS,” says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group. “These products fit very well into our portfolio of reliable and efficient products for the marine and offshore oil and gas market.”

The $3 billion FPSO, expected to be the largest unit of the type in the world, will be moored in the Egina field, a collection of reservoirs at a water depth of approximately 1500 meters, offshore Nigeria for a continuous service period of up to 25 years.

The FPSO will be 330 meters long , 61 meters wide and 34 meters tall. It will be able to carry 2.3 million barrels of crude. First production from the Egina field is expected to start in 2017.
