Heat exchangers for Ichthys FPSO

Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) in Korea is one of the world’s leading contractors specializing in the building offshore platforms, drilling rigs and FPSO vessels: a current project is to build an FPSO (floating production, storage and offloading vessel) for the Japanese oil giant INPEX for their Ichthys LNG project, to be stationed offshore from Western Australia.

Alfa Laval has won an order from DSME for this project, to supply large-sized Alfa Laval Aalborg heaters to preheat gas condensate prior to the onboard processing – which will produce an estimated 100,000 barrels of condensate a day. The order is worth around SEK130m ($20m).

South Korea has now become the fourth largest market for Alfa Laval, with an order intake of around SEK2Bn ($300m). “This is an interesting order in many ways; it includes our market leading Alfa Laval Aalborg heaters, it is from one of the biggest shipbuilders for advanced oil and gas vessels and it is in South Korea, which is becoming an increasingly important market for Alfa Laval” said Lars Renström, president and ceo of the Alfa Laval Group. “The order confirms our strong position as a reliable supplier to the oil and gas industry.”
