Commenting on the renewal of SRG project, William Clough, CUI Global President and CEO said:

"Resumption of the SRG project clears the way for completing the installation of our initial order and puts us on a path for additional orders under our fully-funded contract. We look forward to resuming deliveries in early-2018; to continuing our partnership with Socrate on our largest contract to date; and to redefining the industry's standards for fiscal monitoring of natural gas quality with our GasPT technology."

Nicola Giorgio Sorrentino, CEO of Socrate, added:

"The restart of this important project is a continuation of a long-standing relationship between SRG and Socrate. The project is only made possible by the unique nature of the GasPT analyzer and its ability to cost-effectively and efficiently monitor natural gas quality in the pipeline."

History

In February 2016, CUI subsidiary Orbital bagged a sole-source contract Socrate to supply a minimum of 3,300 to a maximum of 7,000 GasPT units to SRG over a period of three to five years. This contract was a part of SRG's re-metering project across its 33,000+ kilometers pipeline system. Orbital received the initial purchase order for 400 devices in February 2016 following which it delivered the first 50 GasPT analyzers units in the same month. Orbital completed the delivery of 400 devices at 50 units per month by October 2016. However, in October 2016, SRG suspended its project and Socrate ceased installation of the Company's GasPT units.

The decision to suspend the project was a result of some issues in calculating the complex gas transport tariff between Italian Energy Authority and SRG. The decision had nothing to do with Orbital's technology.

A revised Gas Transport Tariff Criteria for 2018-2019 was published by SRG in August 2017, which brings a resolution between Italian Energy Authority and SRG on the matter of tariff. Hence the renewal of the SRG project.

CUI and Orbital's journey during the period of project suspension

CUI has been awaiting the resolution on the matter of tariff for some time now and in the meanwhile, the Company has focused on the meeting the demand for the Company's energy products like its GasPT analyzer and has expanded its customer base and global footprint. The Company has forged partnerships with other energy Companies like ENGIE, a global energy leader. The Company has also been busy exploring opportunities for its odorizer technology. The Company recently entered the phase-2 of the UK's Future Billing Methodology Project. This project applies fiscal monitoring at a residential level and could ultimately result in orders of tens of thousands of the Company's GasPT units. The Company has garnered interests of a key OEM to the gas turbine power generation market in North America where GasPT is applicable both for fiscal monitoring and as a process control device. The Company is enthused by the fact that its GasPT product has been widely accepted in the industry and has a great future supported by multiple opportunities and the SRG project is a part of this journey.
