HOUSTON, Jan. 06, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Electric Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:AETI), a leading provider of power delivery solutions for the global energy industry, announced today that its M&I Electric business has recently been selected to provide a turnkey power delivery solution for a new US based 700-MW natural gas-fired, combined-cycle power generation facility.

M&I Electric received the $7 million contract from a leading engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firm for this green-field power generation facility which will provide clean and reliable base load power generated by two natural gas turbines and one steam turbine.
