First mercury detection units delivered to Australian LNG project

Orbital Gas Systems Ltd, a UK based energy company and wholly owned subsidiary of CUI Global Inc., has successfully delivered the first three mercury detection units to an LNG project currently under construction in Australia. The units cost a total of £300 000, and use Orbital's VE Technology to serve as fast and accurate mercury detectors.

William Clough, the President and CEO of CUI, said: “Successful delivery of these trace element detectors is a dramatic step forward in recognition of the capabilities provided by our VE Technology. That technology, which was initially coupled with our GasPTi analysers, provides extremely quick, pure gas samples allowing for very accurate detection of trace elements like mercury in the gas. In addition, the patented helical fins prevent vibration of the sample probe; thus, increasing pipeline and probe life expectancy."

Additionally, two redundant GasPTi systems have been delivered to an Asian natural gas turbine operator. This operator will use the systems for process control of its large frame power generation turbines.

Clough added: “The delivery of the Asian GasPTi units gives us the opportunity to provide our GasPTi solution to yet another large operator of gas-fired power generation turbines for control processing. Moreover, continued interest in, and sales of our bio-methane and IRIS solutions should provide ongoing revenues to our gas integration division. We continue to work closely with our European integrated natural gas transmission customer on securing initial purchase orders for our GasPT product line and still anticipate that the customer will award purchase orders to selected companies later this year.”
