Alfa Laval Test & Training Centre, Sea possibilities - explore reality

Located in Aalborg, Denmark, the Alfa Laval Test & Training Centre is the closest thing on land to the machinery room of a full-sized commercial vessel. Here equipment and applications can be tested on the scale of an oceangoing ship – but with the control and convenience that cannot exist at sea.

The 2800 m2 testing space offers a wide range of facilities. One portion is a full-size machine room simulation, with Alfa Laval products integrated into major process lines around a 2 MW marine diesel engine.

Another, which reflects the growth of LNG and other gas fuels, focuses on combustion technology in burners, heating systems and inert gas systems. Seawater for all systems comes directly from the Limfjord, which connects the Kattegat Strait with the North Sea.


A single, integrated control system connects all equipment with the control room and training complex. We can thus use parts or all of the centre for defined goals, from evaluating customer-specific configurations to laying the groundwork for new solutions in energy savings, safety and environmental protection.

Whether training for the present or innovating for the future, the Alfa Laval Test & Training Centre makes possibilities real.
