CUI Global, Inc. has announced that its wholly owned UK energy subsidiary, Orbital Gas Systems Ltd. (Orbital), has delivered the first of its GasPT® analysers to Europe's largest natural gas transmission company, Snam Rete Gas (SRG). This first delivery of 50 units is pursuant to a recently announced purchase order for 400 devices, including 65 high pressure installations and comes after several years of intensive durability and accuracy testing; certification by relevant EU authorities; and a thorough, independent test protocol conducted by the University of Milan on behalf of SRG.
SRG is part of the Snam Group, one of the most respected natural gas infrastructure companies in the world and Europe's leading company in terms of regulated asset base (RAB). SRG is also Europe's largest pipeline company, managing over 33 000 km of pipeline. Its strategic geographic location and its 70 years' experience in the natural gas industry makes it a perfect customer to showcase the dynamic nature and value of the GasPT analysers. Orbital and its Italian distributor, SOCRATE S.p.A., look forward to a long term, mutually beneficial relationship with SRG.
"Delivery of these units is the first step in this transformational project for the company," explained William Clough, CUI Global's President and CEO. "We are very proud to be involved in this large scale deployment of our technology and we are especially proud to be partnered with a great customer like Snam Rete Gas."
"This initial delivery of the GasPT analysers to Snam Rete Gas is a continuation of the long term relationship between SRG and SOCRATE," stated Nicola Giorgio Sorrentino, CEO of SOCRATE. "This particular project is only made possible by the unique nature of CUI Global's GasPT analyser and its ability to cost effectively and efficiently monitor natural gas quality in the pipeline."
