DALLAS, Jan. 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PMFG, Inc. (the "Company") (Nasdaq:PMFG) today announced that it has been awarded three separate contracts with a combined value of over $8.5 million. In our Environmental Systems segment, we were awarded two projects. The first project is an SCR/CO exhaust system to be installed in a combined-cycle natural gas fired turbine power plant application. This equipment will reduce both NOX and CO emissions by at least 90% for an electric power generation facility in the northeast region of the United States. The second project is for the installation of emission control systems on power drivers for existing natural gas pipeline in the southeastern region of the United States. In our Process Products segment, we were awarded a project to design and fabricate a steam blow down separator for use on steam assisted gravity drainage ("SAGD") oil recovery operations in Canada. The Company expects to recognize revenue related to these projects over the balance of fiscal year 2014 and the first half of fiscal year 2015.
Peter J. Burlage, PMFG's Chief Executive Officer said, "As we outlined in our recent conference calls, we expect the power generation, natural gas value chain and the refinery markets to be key drivers for our company. These wins are certainly representative of the opportunities within these markets and I expect they will continue to play a significant role for us in fiscal 2014 and beyond. The new combined cycle plant under construction is indicative of the relative cost of natural gas as a fuel source and the significant cost implications for existing coal fired facilities to meet regulatory requirements. While Peerless has played a significant role in providing separation and filtration equipment for use in natural gas infrastructure within the United States, the recent project allows us an opportunity to introduce our SCR technology to assist our customer in meeting the stringent emission regulations."
