GSE Systems Awarded Two Contracts Worth Approximately $4 Million for Nuclear Power Simulation Work in China

COLUMBIA, Md.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–GSE Systems, Inc. (ÔÇ£GSEÔÇØ or ÔÇ£the CompanyÔÇØ) (Nasdaq:GVP), a
leader in real-time high-fidelity simulation systems,
training/consulting and technology-enabled engineering solutions to the
power and process industries, today announced receipt of two contracts
from important Chinese customers. The two contracts will commence during
Q2 2018, and together have a total value that exceeds $4 million. The
projects will continue over the next two years.

Under one of the contracts, GSE will provide simulation technology and
engineering services for delivery of a full scope high-fidelity nuclear
power plant simulator. GSE has participated in the development and
delivery of two other simulators for this customer. GSE and its partner
will develop the simulator using GSEÔÇÖs high-fidelity simulation platform
and JADEÔäó software modeling suite, THEATRe, and REMARK advanced models.
The simulator will be enhanced with severe accident simulation
capability supported by GSEÔÇÖs PSA-HDÔäó modeling software. The JADE suite
has been used to effectively meet the highest standard of simulation in
the nuclear industry and used for simulators for all major nuclear plant
designs, including: Pressurized and Boiling Water Reactors, Advanced Gas
Reactors, Canadian CANDU Reactors, Russian VVER Reactors, High
Temperature Gas Reactors and Small Modular Reactors.

Under the other contract, GSE will provide its PSA-HD real-time severe
accident modeling technology for the customer to apply to their Chinese
designed CAP 1400 nuclear plant simulator at a nuclear power plant site.
GSEÔÇÖs PSA-HD tool combines the Electric Power Research InstituteÔÇÖs
(EPRIÔÇÖs) modular accident analysis code (MAAP*) with GSEÔÇÖs real-time
High Definition Executive to enable training and analysis of beyond
design basis events, a focus for the industry since the March 2011
accident at JapanÔÇÖs Fukushima Daiichi plant. The technology will improve
both operator and support staff coordination, procedure development and
response training in the unlikely event of an accident. PSA-HD, which
applies to full scope simulators, and GSEÔÇÖs desktop version Design EP┬«,
have been implemented at more than 25 nuclear power and research
organizations around the world for a variety of reactor types.

Kyle Loudermilk, CEO and President of GSE said, ÔÇ£Our success in
providing leading simulation technology and engineering services for
several Chinese nuclear power plants have directly resulted in these
awards. The desire to continue working with GSE reflects an appreciation
for both our world-class technology and know-how. It also reflects the
customer commitment to state-of-the-art training and workforce
development. We are honored by the awards and the opportunity to
continue our relationship long into the future.ÔÇØ
