HOUSTON, Sept. 6, 2022 – Orbital Infrastructure Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: OIG) (“OIG”) today announced that its subsidiary, Orbital Power Inc. (“OPI”), has been awarded a multi-year electric distribution project for an Investor-Owned Utility customer in Texas.
The scope of work includes a reconductor and pole replacement program on approximately a 20 mile overhead and underground electric distribution circuit and related maintenance on feeder and service lines in conjunction with the system upgrade. The project will take approximately two years to complete.
“This project award is the result of the Orbital Power team’s solid and safe execution of smaller projects for this customer over the past eighteen months,” said Jim O’Neil, OIG’s Vice Chairman & CEO. “This award demonstrates OIG’s ability to win and deliver large scale multi-million dollar projects, as we continue to gain momentum in our electric power infrastructure segment. A key component of our strategic plan is to build our customer relationships by providing best in class service, expand our market share, and, thereby, increase our shareholder value.”
Orbital Infrastructure Group, Inc. ( Nasdaq: OIG) is a diversified infrastructure services platform, providing engineering, design, construction, and maintenance services to customers in three operating segments; electric power, telecommunications, and renewables.
Beginning in April 2021, Orbital Infrastructure Group transformed its infrastructure strategy with the acquisitions of GTS and Front Line Power Construction, the company’s telecommunications and electric power segment platforms, as well as three synergistic “tuck in” acquisitions (IMMCO, Inc, Full Moon Telecom, and Coax Fiber) and the divestiture of its legacy Orbital Gas Systems business. The Company is now positioned to profitably grow its infrastructure services platform for years to come, organically and through synergistic acquisitions to capitalize on strong multi-year end market drivers in the industries we serve.
Orbital Infrastructure Group is dedicated to maximizing shareholder value, by striving to exceed our customers’ expectations, building a diverse workforce, and making a positive difference in the lives of our employees and the communities in which we operate, and contributing to reducing the carbon footprint through the services we provide.
