HOUSTON, Sept. 19, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Electric Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:AETI) a leading supplier of power delivery solutions for the global energy industry, announced today it has been selected by Westlake Chemical's Engineering & Procurement supplier Chengda Engineering, to supply turnkey power delivery products and services for Westlake's Chlor-Alkali expansion project at the Westlake Polymers plant located in Geismar, LA

The Westlake Chemical Chlor-Alkali expansion site, adjacent to the existing vinyl chloride monomer (VCM) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) facility in Geismar, is intended to have a capacity of 350,000 electrochemical units (ECU)/year. The expansion has been targeted for start-up in the second half of 2013, according to Westlake Chemical, with total facility project costs estimated at between $370 million and $420 million.

Selected by Westlake's Engineering and Procurement (E&C) supplier Chengda Engineering, AETI's M&I Electric group will provide a fully integrated Power Control Building to provide primary power delivery for all of the plant's process equipment electrical requirements including powering motors, transformers, lighting, heating and cooling. In addition to electrical power systems, AETI will also provide real-time power equipment operational information to the plant's data acquisition and control center.

"We selected AETI for our electrical project requirements due to their wide experience in providing large power delivery switchgear and integrated Power Control Room solutions, and their 65-year history of providing a comprehensive array of electrical products and services to the midstream and downstream energy sectors," said Liu Song, Deputy Project Director of Chengda Engineering Inc. "We look forward to working with AETI on future projects that require integrated power delivery solutions as well."

"We are very pleased to have been selected for this Westlake Chemical plant expansion project by Chengda," said Charles Dauber, president and CEO, AETI. "This is another successful example of our oil and gas strategy, which includes providing optimized power delivery solutions for the Exploration and Production, Midstream, and Downstream oil and gas markets."
