- Strong Order Flow Reflective of Orbital's Expertise and Growing Reputation for Project Excellence, Reliable Performance, and Quality Engineering in Gulf Coast Region -
HOUSTON, Dec. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- CUI Global, Inc. (NASDAQ: CUI) announced today that its wholly-owned energy subsidiary, Orbital Gas Systems ("Orbital"), has been awarded purchase orders for integration projects totaling $3.3 million from a large Texas-based Engineering, Procurement, and Construction ("EPC") company during the fourth quarter 2018. The purchase orders, the largest of which originates from a key Gulf Coast customer of Orbital's with the balance secured from a second Gulf Coast energy operator, comprise custom analytical integration systems for two new fractionation units. Orbital will provide complete online analysis systems for process control of the new fractionation units and the analysis systems for EPA monitoring of each unit.
Orbital has been working on integration projects with this EPC and its key customer for several years and the scope of its work has expanded with each fractionation unit built. Orbital is also expanding its service capabilities at this key customer's request to include the commissioning of previously installed analytical integration systems on the same site, a service it plans to expand to all future fractionation units. Orbital's current project with this key customer will include:
- detailed design;
- fabrication of approved designs; and,
- assistance in field commissioning.
Nicholas Clough, president and business development lead for the Energy Division, stated, "This latest order with our key customer also puts us in a strong position to secure the analytical content of three additional units currently in early concept stage and likely to result in orders over the next two years. Further purchase orders for additional scope, including VE Technology sample probes and systems, are expected early in 2019 for the same project."
CUI Global President and CEO William Clough said, "We're seeing an uptick in integration projects in and around Southeast Texas that is being driven by our growing reputation in engineering and design expertise and excellence that is positioning Orbital as the 'go-to' solutions provider for the Energy Majors. These purchase orders are reflective of this growing reputation, and our new Houston facility is perfectly situated to capitalize on the many unique projects these companies will be initiating in the coming years."
