Linde Severstal JV Ships Spiral Wound Heat Exchangers to Spain
Russian steel maker Severstal and the German company Linde GmbH’s joint venture Linde Severstal has shipped the last of five Spiral Wound Heat
Russian steel maker Severstal and the German company Linde GmbH’s joint venture Linde Severstal has shipped the last of five Spiral Wound Heat Exchangers to Spain, for the first time. At the production site in St. Petersburg, the Linde Severstal joint venture has completed the full production cycle: pipe coiling, assembly of SVTO and finished product testing. The weight of SVTO varies from 14 to 110 tonnes. In the future, the joint venture plans to manufacture large-capacity spiral-wound heat exchangers weighing up to 1,000 tons for liquefied natural gas plants.
Currently, the production workshops of Linde Severstal are producing a tube bundle of a heat exchanger weighing 300 tonnes, which will be used at the liquefied natural gas plant under the Arctic LNG 2 project of Novatek.
In the summer of 2019, Linde Severstal moved to a new production site in St. Petersburg near the water area. Thus, the company provided itself with convenient logistics for the delivery of heat exchange equipment to customers, whose enterprises are often located in the North-West region or in the Arctic. Also, this location is convenient for the delivery of SVTO in the export direction.
