Published: 28 July, 2011
Sierra Monitor Corporation, a company that designs, manufactures and sells electronic safety and environmental instrumentation, today announces that it has been awarded an order to supply fire and gas instrumentation to be installed in a major Middle East project. The order for instrumentation combined with ancillary monitoring and alarm equipment is the largest single order in the company’s history.
“Since the opening of our Dubai-based sales office, Sierra Monitor has successfully implemented safety systems at several key accounts in the region. This order capitalizes on our quality reputation and significantly expands our Middle East installed base,” said Gordon Arnold, chairman and chief executive officer. Valued at over $2.5 million, the order involves the supply of gas detection and flame detection modules, beam type gas monitors and numerous audible and visible alarm devices. “We anticipate shipment of the complete order in the fourth quarter of 2011.”
Sierra Monitor’s gas detection devices and systems are designed to detect hazardous gases such as combustible gas, oxygen deficiencies and toxic gases before they reach dangerous levels. Its detection systems have advanced data communications capabilities that enable them to interface to centrally located control systems.
