Orbital UK awarded contracts to enhance fuel gas metering and compressor efficiency on UK gas transmission network
HOUSTON (March 13, 2018) – Orbital Gas Systems Ltd (“Orbital UK”) has been awarded four contracts totalling approximately $4.58 million (£3.3 million) by a Tier 1 Engineering, Procurement and Construction firm in the UK.
The four-contract award was secured following many months of technical and commercial engagement that enabled the client to attain significant value from Orbital UK’s world class in-house capabilities, including integrating multiple packages and reducing client project delivery, technical and commercial risks.
The overall scope-of-works is for eight off-skids, including Filtration, Flow Control, Fiscal Metering, Supervisory PLC Metering, Gas Quality Measurement, Electric Heat Exchangers-Control and Specialist Lube Oil to Fuel Gas Heat Exchangers providing pre-heated natural gas to the solar gas turbines driving combustion efficiency.
Orbital UK will deliver solutions that include multiple high-pressure temperature measurements using its proprietary VE Technology® Thermowells together with its GasPT®‘Integrated Calorific Value Determination’ analyzers to ensure minimal overall response times while also eliminating sample blending and enhancing safety, thereby resulting in unrivalled energy measurement. The environmental impact of the awards is also significantly reduced with a reduction in construction and operational activities to install and operate the GasPT analyzers.
Paul White, president, Orbital UK, stated, “The award of this project from such a large and well-respected Tier 1 contractor after a months-long competitive bidding process that included presentations, negotiations and due diligence, confirms Orbital UK’s ability to deliver the highest quality integration services together with its unique and proprietary VE and GasPT technologies that are simply unavailable from other sources.
“I am proud of the entire Orbital UK group for the teamwork demonstrated in securing this exciting project. We look forward to providing the world-class service, dependability, engineering and unique solutions that have become the hallmarks of Orbital UK,” concluded White.
William Clough, president and CEO, CUI Global, added, “These awards for a milestone project from this caliber of customer is a testament to Orbital UK, Paul, and his entire team, especially given the level of competition they faced from other industry participants. This project further underscores Orbital UK’s capabilities and the disruptive technological nature of our GasPT and VE technologies in the marketplace.”
