CINCINNATI, Aug. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CECO Environmental Corp. (NasdaqGM: CECE), a leading global environmental technology company focused on critical solutions in the air pollution control (APC), energy and fluid handling and filtration industries, announced today that its Aarding Thermal Acoustics subsidiary ("Aarding") in The Netherlands recently received two large new orders totaling $20 million.
The first order is from Saudi Electricity for several natural gas power plants in the Middle East. This order was a direct result of the OneCECO sales platform initiative as Aarding & Effox, the two businesses that comprise CECO's Energy division, teamed up to provide a broader, more complete solution to win the order for the design, engineering and manufacture of 12 bypass exhaust systems. CECO's technology will be installed downstream of several large GE natural gas turbines.
The second significant order, also from Aarding, is for two large natural gas turbines for an Asian customer.
"I am very pleased with these significant new business wins as our focus on the OneCECO sales solutions initiative continues to show very positive results," says Jeff Lang, President and Chief Executive Officer of CECO. "The natural gas global mega trend is one of several powerful drivers for our business and our engineered solutions are critical to generating clean, efficient, and flexible energy capabilities around the globe. We are very excited with all of our team's efforts and our continued growing sales activity."
Martin Pranger and Norbert Pieterse, Managing Directors of Aarding`s global natural gas segment added, "These new orders underscore the increasing global demand for energy and our gas turbine exhaust technology. Our engineered solutions for the Energy sector are well positioned to leverage the dynamic and growing demand for energy globally."
