CUI receives order for LNG project

CUI Global, Inc. has announced that its wholly owned North American energy subsidiary, Orbital Gas Systems N.A., has successfully received orders for delivery of its mercury detection units to a large LNG project in the North Eastern US. The order, valued at US$1 000 000, uses Orbital's proprietary VE Technology® sampling system to provide a fast and uniquely accurate method of detecting trace elements (like mercury) in the LNG liquefaction process.

The North American order for the mercury detection units and other VE Technology related systems, follows successful deployment of the systems to a large LNG project in Queensland, Australia. Due to the unique design of the VE probe, there is no vibration within the pipeline and the gas sample can be quickly and accurately furnished to the trace element (i.e. mercury, H2, O) detector in a matter of seconds; thus, allowing the operator to recognise trace element contamination more effectively than with other available technology.

CUI Global's President & CEO, William Clough said, "Successful delivery of these trace element detectors to North America is yet another step forward in recognition of the capabilities provided by our VE Technology. This technology provides extremely quick, pure gas samples allowing for very accurate detection of trace elements like mercury or moisture in the gas. In addition, the patented helical fins prevent vibration of the sample probe thereby increasing pipeline and probe life expectancy."

"We continue to work closely with both US and European integrated natural gas transmission customers on securing initial purchase orders for our natural gas product lines, including the Italian pipeline transmission company, where we still anticipate that initial purchase orders will be awarded to selected companies soon," Clough concluded.
