Tri-Tech Holding Wins $1.5 Million Natural Gas Distribution Network Control System Project in City of Wuhan
BEIJING, Jan. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Tri-Tech Holding Inc. (Nasdaq: TRIT), which
provides turn-key water resources management, water and wastewater treatment, industrial safety
and pollution control solutions, announced today that it secured a $1.5 million strategic
collaboration agreement with Wuhan Natural Gas High-Pressure Pipeline Co. ("NGHP"). The
agreement between NGHP and Tri-Tech Holding's affiliate, Beijing Satellite Science & Technology
Co., Ltd. ("BSST"), outlines a framework for an automated control system for natural gas plants,
terminal stations and distribution pipelines in the city of Wuhan, Hubei Province.
Under the terms of the agreement, BSST will implement communication systems projects in Wuhan,
including Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition, Distributed Control System and Emergency
Shutdown Device, which will enable data communications among key facilities such as plants,
monitoring stations, control centers, valve chambers, and reservatories for liquefied natural gas.
The scope of services also includes an improvement to software interface with customer
specifications, an integration of related systems, the procurement of equipment, a series of
training, systems delivery and installations, as well as testing and commissioning of the systems.
All the projects and services stated in the agreement will be completed by May 2013.
Mr. Gavin Cheng, President of Tri-Tech Holding Inc., commented, "The automated control system
tailored for the natural gas distribution network will provide a solution to ensure a safe and reliable
operation of the natural gas pipeline network in Wuhan. With its advanced software and hardware,
the system can be used to monitor the operations of natural gas stations and networks to improve
overall network efficiency. In addition to improving safety and network efficiency, the system can
also optimize scheduling of gas distribution to avoid imbalances between gas supplies and
demands, thereby reducing waste and saving money.
Mr. Warren Zhao, CEO of Tri-Tech Holding said, "We are pleased with BSST's successful move
into the urban natural gas distribution infrastructure market while continuing to expand its
business in safety controls in the fields of oil and natural gas production. The urban natural
gas distribution pipeline network is growing both in capacity and complexity. It has become
imperative to enforce safety controls to prevent accidents and fatalities caused by gas leakage
or explosions in the distribution network. The deployment of automated systems for the
natural gas distribution network will be key to safety control in urban infrastructure construction.
Tri-Tech Holding will continue to focus on market trends and opportunities in this sector through
