Alfa Laval has signed a five-year agreement with Vestas (Sweden)
Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has signed a purchase agreement with Vestas, world leading manufacturer of wind turbines.
The agreement, which is for oil coolers, is valid for five years with an estimated total value of about SEK 150 million.
The agreement means that Alfa Laval will be a recommended supplier of oil‑cooling equipment to all Vestas’ projects for the coming five years. Vestas has been involved in the specific design of the oil coolers to ensure a perfect fit.
“This is an exciting opportunity for us to further strengthen our relationship with Vestas” says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group. “It also proves our ability to supply energy efficient solutions.”
