Alfa Laval has signed an agreement to acquire Scanjet, a leading global supplier of tank cleaning equipment and solutions for marine, offshore and industrial applications. The acquisition will extend Alfa Laval’s broad tanker offering, creating a more comprehensive product portfolio for cargo tanks. Closing of the acquisition is expected during Q3 2022.
Scanjet’s intelligent tank management solutions will be a valuable complement to Alfa Laval’s sustainable marine offering as they reduce the water usage and energy consumption connected with tank cleaning. Adding Scanjet to Alfa Laval’s portfolio will support customer efficiency at every stage of cargo handling.
Scanjet employs about 150 people and has global presence with factories in Sweden, Poland and Indonesia, and a turnover of about SEK 300 million (FY 2022FC).
Said Sameer Kalra, President of the Marine Division: “I am pleased to announce this acquisition. Scanjet’s well-known and market-leading solutions for cargo tanks complement our existing Framo cargo pumping solutions for cargo handling. This gives us the ability to optimise tank management for our customers with an ambition to reduce their water and fuel consumption and ultimately their CO2 footprint.”
Added Magnus Wallin, CEO, Scanjet: “Alfa Laval is the ideal place for Scanjet’s journey to continue. Our companies have leading marine offerings that complement and strengthen each other. Above all, we share the ambition to exceed customer needs in full.” For more visit alfalaval.com
