Regulatory News: 

Alfa Laval (STO:ALFA) - a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation
and fluid handling - has won an order from Wärtsilä to supply Alfa Laval Aalborg
waste heat recovery system to a gas-fired power plant in South Africa. The
order, booked in the Marine & Diesel Equipment segment late December 2012, has a
value of approximately SEK 50 million. Delivery is scheduled for 2013. 

The Alfa Laval Aalborg heat recovery boilers will be installed in a newly built
power plant in Sasolburg where they will recover waste heat from the gas
engines` exhaust gases and utilize this energy to generate superheated steam for
the refinery process of the nearby ethylene production plant. 

"Our Alfa Laval Aalborg waste heat recovery systems are used in a wide range of
applications, where they save fuel and hence reduce emissions by reusing energy
that otherwise would be wasted", says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the
Alfa Laval Group. "By using these systems the plant owners improve their bottom
line and make their processes more sustainable." 

Did you know that… this will be the largest power plant running exclusively on
gas engines to be installed on the African continent?
