HOUSTON, May 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- CUI Global, Inc. (NASDAQ: CUI) announced today that its wholly-owned Energy subsidiary, Orbital Gas Systems Ltd. ("Orbital UK" or the "Company"), was awarded a second contract valued in excess of $500,000 for a biomethane-to-grid unit by a major European industrial company. Orbital U.K. was awarded its first contract by the customer, an operator of biomethane-to-grid plants throughout Europe, in February 2017. The new contract calls for the provision of one biomethane-to-grid unit to be delivered in 2018.
This latest award underscores Orbital U.K.'s long-standing partnership with the customer that is founded in the customer's audit and assessment of Orbital U.K.'s technical, innovation, and support capabilities, as well as Orbital U.K.'s successful prior delivery of two biomethane-to-grid units and its reputation for project excellence – including a 100% success rate in meeting delivery deadlines – within the industry. The award confirms the Company's world class design, manufacturing, and technical support capabilities and facilities.
Orbital U.K. has seen the industry's interest in its biomethane solutions increase following the recent certification of its GasPT® analyzer by the U.K. regulator, Ofgem. The award also comes days after Orbital U.K. conducted an Open House/Work Shop to promote its GasPT and GasPTi technology for biomethane and other applications to leading U.K. energy industry participants.
Orbital U.K. president Paul D. White stated, "Receipt of this order represents continuing recognition from one of Europe's largest industrial companies of Orbital U.K.'s technical expertise in the field of biomethane-to-grid solutions. Our track record of achievements, world class facilities, as well as our ability to problem solve complex matters and innovative technologies have allowed us to develop this relationship. We look forward to expanding our footprint in the biomethane market with this and other customers as this exciting new alternative energy market develops."
CUI Global President & CEO William Clough commented, "Accelerated by growing government and industry support, the U.K. and western European countries are moving further away from traditional fossil fuel energy and towards more environment-friendly alternative energy sources. The recent certification of GasPT by Ofgem, our Open House/Workshop event, and our ongoing business development efforts position us to capture market share in the growing biomethane-to-grid industry that serves as practical and timely alternative to fossil fuels. Our expertise and unique ability to provide relatively inexpensive, low-maintenance analytic solutions puts us in an excellent position as this industry and demand for our services grow."
