A century of steam | Alfa Laval

Boiler history blue 1200x400

Welcome to the next era of boiler solutions

This year marks a century since the first boiler carrying the Aalborg name began its journey at sea. That boiler and the vessel it sailed with now belong to history. But for Alfa Laval Aalborg solutions, the past and present are a springboard into the future.

The deep knowledge and complete technology portfolio developed over the past 100 years are the heart of today’s Alfa Laval Aalborg solutions – along with the people and commitment behind them. As the marine industry faces new energy, environmental and business challenges, they’re providing the steam to keep it moving forward.


100 anos de inovação em caldeiras

Em 1919, quando a primeira caldeira marinha deixou o Estaleiro de Aalborg, em Aalborg, na Dinamarca, ninguém poderia saber o significado que teria. Isso era só o início para um século de parceria para atender às necessidades de vapor dos navios - uma parceria que continua a crescer mais forte e mais profundamente. Ao longo de 100 anos, o nome Aalborg tornou-se sinônimo de caldeiras, liderança e quebra de barreiras tecnológicas. As soluções atuais da Alfa Laval Aalborg são o resultado orgulhoso dessa tradição secular.

From shipyard to boiler development

Tradition runs deep at the former shipyard in Aalborg, Denmark. Though the site is very different than it was in 1919, it still serves as the headquarters for Alfa Laval Aalborg boiler solutions. Its largest building now houses the 1350 m3 Alfa Laval Test & Training Centre, which spearheads Alfa Laval research and development in steam applications. Yet the Aalborg spirit and dedication remain unchanged – defining an organization that now stretches across the globe.
