Anders Lindmark, formerly Head of Alfa Laval PureBallast, has transitioned to a new role. On May 1, he became Business Unit President, Gas Systems, overseeing the Alfa Laval PureSOx exhaust gas cleaning offering.
Lindmark’s new position is based in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, where he will drive the continued development of Alfa Laval’s SOx scrubber offering. Like PureBallast 3, Alfa Laval PureSOx has established itself among today’s leading compliance solutions.
“The PureSOx team is highly skilled, and I’ve followed its accomplishments even during my time with PureBallast,” says Lindmark. “In the ten years since the first vessel set sail with PureSOx on board, they’ve developed an extraordinary product and service offering, ranging from hybrid systems with the industry’s most effective closed-loop water cleaning technology to market-leading connectivity in the form of PureSOx Connect. I’m proud to join such a dynamic team and excited to continue moving PureSOx forward.”
Next year will be important for both ballast water treatment and exhaust gas cleaning, with revised G8 requirements for ballast water management systems taking effect and fuel changes potentially increasing the demand for scrubbers. As 2020 approaches, Lindmark is pleased to be associated with both offerings.
“It’s a privilege to be connected with two leading solutions that address such vital industry challenges,” Lindmark reflects. “In my work with PureBallast and ballast water treatment, I’ve appreciated the close dialogue with customers, industry experts and other stakeholders. I look forward to a similar dialogue when it comes to PureSOx and exhaust gas cleaning.”
Lindmark’s successor as Head of Alfa Laval PureBallast will be Peter Sahlén, who has been with the PureBallast team since 2012. For the past five years, Sahlén has served as Head of Research & Development for the PureBallast offering.
