LUND, Sweden--(Business Wire)--
Regulatory News: 

Alfa Laval (STO:ALFA) - a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation
and fluid handling - has won its first order to supply Alfa Laval PureSOx
exhaust gas cleaning systems. The order, booked in the Marine & Offshore Systems
segment late December 2012, has a value of approximately SEK 60 million.
Delivery is scheduled for 2013. Due to a confidentiality agreement Alfa Laval is
unable to disclose the name of the customer or other details about the order. 

IMO`s convention for the reduction of sulphur oxides (SOx) will affect all
vessels, i.e. new as well as existing. The convention, ratified and implemented
in some Emission Control Areas (ECAs), demands that sulphur emission levels in
these ECAs should be 0.1 percent from year 2015 and from 2020 the global
emission level must not exceed 0.5 percent. To reach these levels a ship owner
can either use more expensive low sulphur fuel or, on vessels where it is
suitable, continue running on heavy fuel oil and invest in a scrubber - such as
the Alfa Laval PureSOx. 

Did you know that… Alfa Laval PureSOx hybrid scrubber solution can use both sea
and fresh water to clean the emissions from the main engine?
