NEWSLETTER FOR THE MARINE INDUSTRY SPECIAL EDITION 2019 marine THE FUTURE BUILDS ON A CENTURY OF STEAM In 1919, when the first marine boiler left the Aalborg Shipyard in Aalborg, Denmark, no one could have known the significance it would have. 100 years later, the Aalborg name has become synonymous with boiler expertise. That first Aalborg boiler went to sea in a very different time than today. There were no demands for energy efficiency, no regulations governing emissions nor any of the complexities found on modern vessels. But there was a constant demand for steam, and that remains to this day. In a century of generating steam at sea, our partnership with marine customers has grown stronger and deeper – just like the solutions themselves. What were once boilers are now complete boiler solutions, comprising far more than the steel they’re built with. Alfa Laval Aalborg boiler solutions encompass boiler, combustion and control technologies, as well as the services and know-how to secure uptime and ongoing efficiency. As the marine industry sails towards new challenges and opportunities, we’re providing the steam to keep it moving forward.

Seen from outside the steel drum, it might appear that little at all has changed. But the advances in technology have been nothing short of extraordinary, and Alfa Laval Aalborg boiler solutions have always been at the forefront.
