HOUSTON, December 4, 2012 - American Electric Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: AETI) a leading global provider of power delivery solutions for the energy industry, announced today that it supplied Siemens Industry, Inc. with a 1.0 megawatt (MW) Integrated Solar Inversion Station (ISIS) as part of a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with the City of Atwater, CA. The Siemens-owned and -operated 20-year solar project, which powered up in October, 2012, is projected to save the city more than $1 million in energy costs. Contract terms were not disclosed.
 
The 1.0 MW ISIS, along with bundled installation and commissioning services, provided Siemens with a fully integrated product and service offering to help meet their project timelines. With AETI’s capabilities, Siemens will enable the City of Atwater to reduce costs and meet increased energy demands associated with their new wastewater treatment plant adjacent to the solar project site. The complete solar system will generate 2,221,738 kWh of clean renewable energy annually, and realize significant greenhouse gas emissions savings.
 
AETI’s ISIS platform is the world’s first 1000V 1MW solar inverter witness-tested to UL1741 by a nationally recognized test lab (NRTL), TUV of North America.  The ISIS system deployed at the Atwater site incorporates an integrated DC master re-combiner, control power transformer, and grid-tie transformer, and was installed by an AETI services team with over 2GW of grid-tie projects to date.
 
“We are pleased to have been selected by Siemens for their solar project in Atwater, California,” said Kent Breaux, global director of renewables, AETI. “Partnering with a reputable solar project developer like Siemens allowed us to deliver the customer a superior level of quality service while helping them reduce high energy costs and meet renewable energy goals.”
