Graham Corp. has been awarded $3 million in orders for equipment for installations in the refining and power generation industries in the United States, the Batavia firm said Tuesday.
One of the orders, for ejector system components, is to upgrade equipment at a U.S. oil refinery that Graham supplied equipment to in 1989. Graham will design and build two steam surface condensers for two 18-megawatt biomass energy facilities under construction in the Southeast, the company said.
Both orders have planned deliveries for the first quarter fiscal 2014, which begins April 1, 2013.
"Despite the overall concern surrounding the U.S. and global economy, bidding activity for us is high in the refining, petrochemical and power markets,” said James Lines, president and CEO, in a statement. “We are actively pursuing several alternative energy projects, such as this biomass to energy project we have won.
“In addition, we have seen a recent increase in bid work for North American oil refineries which is encouraging considering how much this market had slowed during the past recession."
