CUI Global, Inc. has announced that its wholly owned UK energy subsidiary, Orbital Gas Systems Ltd. (Orbital), has been awarded a major contract from Scotia Gas Networks (SGN) for delivery of its large scale, metering skids.
The order, worth approximately £1,400,000 (approximately US$2 000 000), calls for the design, construction, and delivery of a 24 in. and 16 in. metering skid for installation at Tatsfield AGI, the largest distribution network off-take in Southern England, and Drum AGI in Scotland. The first skid will be provided in time for installation in September 2016 with the final being delivered in early 2017. These skids will be used to accurately meter gas at the points where the SGN distribution network imports gas from the UK transmission network, before supplying it to domestic customers across the South of England and Scotland.
SGN manages the network that distributes natural and green gas to 5.8 million homes and businesses across Scotland, the south of England, and parts of Ireland. The UK and SGN have committed to reducing carbon emissions by 80% by 2050 and the gas networks will play a crucial role in an affordable and secure low carbon transition. SGN is working hard to take the carbon element out of gas to demonstrate it has a long term future as part of a sustainable energy mix. By injecting environmentally friendly green gas into its network, SGN is helping the Government to meet its climate change targets.
Richard Law, Managing Director of Orbital Gas Systems commented, "We are delighted to secure this order as we look to cement our position within the gas metering market and further develop our relationship with SGN."
As explained by CUI Global's President & CEO, William Clough, "This project and others like it help to solidify the company as a partner with the UK's and Europe's largest natural gas operators in their efforts to provide more and better energy sources to their customers, while reducing carbon emissions and providing environmentally sensitive energy solutions."
