Alfa Laval, a heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling company, has been tapped by Abengoa to deliver its Packinox heat exchangers for a concentrated solar power (CSP) plant in South Africa.

Delivery of Alfa Laval’s products will be finalised in 2014. The companies did not disclose the exact value of the order.

The heat exchangers were specifically developed for this application and will play a key part as the center of the thermal storage system.
