HOUSTON, Feb. 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Synthesis Energy Systems, Inc. (SES) (NASDAQ:SYMX), the global leader in economic and sustainable high performance clean energy gasification technology, today reported financial results for its fiscal 2017 second quarter ended December 31, 2016. “During the second quarter of our fiscal year 2017, we have been focused on near term orders and their associated revenue, now closer than ever, and we are in the midst of forming financially impactful business platforms, all of which have been made possible by the successful multi-year commercialization of our technology,” said DeLome Fair, SES President and CEO. “Projects on nearly every continent are seeking us out, and I am extremely excited about the progress we are making through our technology projects and platforms outside of China. These inquiries are from countries and regions around the world eager for an economic alternative to expensive natural gas that is also environmentally responsible. SES Gasification Technology delivers a cleaner use of coal – a greener solution – that is proven on over 50 coals, biomass and wastes, including feedstocks from the US, Europe, China and Australia.” Ms. Fair continued: “Today, from our most advanced project bidding activities to early stage commercial discussions, SES is working a project pipeline with current prospective opportunities that could exceed $20 billion dollars in total project facilities cost. Our nearest-term activities include the South American project that continues to move forward, and multiple new potential projects – in India, the Caribbean, and Southeast Asia. We believe that total installed cost of these projects could exceed $2 billion beginning this year and extending across the next three to five years. “Based on our success with the approach on the Australian Future Energy platform, we are continuing to develop business platforms in regions of the world with abundant low-cost lignite coal and coal wastes and limited access to affordable natural gas. We intend to move into Eastern Europe with a similar type of platform structure in the near future. Additionally, we believe there will be future opportunities for platforms in other similar regions, such as India,” added Ms. Fair. “We intend to utilize the same platform concept in China where we have spent the majority of our efforts over the past ten years. We are working diligently on completing one or more self-funding China platforms with strong Chinese investment partners who are interested in taking our China assets, partnerships and future project opportunities that we have developed to the next stage, which will allow our Chinese operations to run relatively autonomously from SES. Once successful, our goal is to participate in China’s energy growth through co-ownership of the project investment platform and technology license orders.” Callide Mine: In October 2016, Batchfire Resources Pty Ltd., in which SES holds an approximately 11% ownership position, completed its acquisition of the Callide thermal coal mine located in Central Queensland, Australia, from Anglo American plc. The Callide Mine is a mature and significantly sized coal producer with substantial recoverable thermal coal reserves, according to Batchfire. The mine continued its operations uninterrupted on a “walk-out, walk-in” basis, and reports from the early operation of the mine since the acquisition are showing a smooth transition.  Our ownership position in Batchfire is the result of our successful platform development activities in Australia. Yima Joint Ventures Methanol Plant: The Yima plant returned to operations in November 2016, with good operation reports since the restart. Yima JV management continues its efforts to consolidate the JV structure, in order to finalize the permits and move forward with the plant’s official operations phase. SES is pursuing options to monetize this asset. ZZ Joint Venture Project: In October 2016 SES completed the restructuring of its commercial proof-of-concept SGT demonstration plant and feedstock testing facility with Shandong Weijiao Group Xuecheng Energy Co., Ltd. China Joint Venture: Tianwo-SES Clean Energy Technologies Co., Ltd. (Tianwo-SES), SES’s China Joint Venture with Suzhou THVOW Technology Co., Ltd. – SES continues to work with its Tianwo-SES JV partner to improve its operations. Tianwo-SES is actively pursuing multiple projects across China, including a large-scale national level project to produce substitute natural gas. Chris Raczkowski, an accomplished leader and engineer whose career focus on clean energy technologies includes 17 years of professional experience and living in China and Southeast Asia, joined the team as President – Asia, as announced in December 2016. Mr. Raczkowski’s 25-year career includes energy project development in China, Vietnam, Thailand and Malaysia, and he served as Vice President Engineering for SES during the development and construction of the SES Gasification Technology demonstration plant in Shandong Province, China. The Company reported revenues of $5,000 for the Current Quarter.  During the Comparable Quarter total revenues were $53,000, which resulted from engineering feasibility studies and coal testing services for a customer. The Company reported $2,000 costs of sales during the Current Quarter.  In the Comparable Quarter cost of sales totaled $35,000, which related to the costs incurred for coal testing and engineering studies for a customer. The Company's operating loss from continuing operations for the Current Quarter was $2.9 million versus an operating loss of $3.1 million for the Comparable Quarter. The decrease in operating loss was primarily due to less stock-based expense in the Current Quarter. The Company reported a gain from discontinued operations related to our ZZ Joint Venture of $2.3 million for the Current Quarter compared with a total loss of $1.0 million for the Comparable Quarter.  The Current Quarter gain of $2.3 million was primarily the result of the deconsolidation of the ZZ Joint Venture in the Current Quarter. The net loss attributable to stockholders for the second quarter of fiscal 2017 was approximately $0.6 million during the Current Quarter versus a loss of $3.9 million for the Comparable Quarter. As of December 31, 2016, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $9.3 million and working capital of $8.2 million.

ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Siemens announces that it has secured a series of federal contracts over the last year that are projected to save the U. S. Government nearly $300 million and reduce energy use to help meet White House sustainability mandates. Since its inception in 2011, Siemens Government Technologies, Inc. is participating in dozens of projects in nearly every cabinet agency. From retrofitting the National Mall with LED lighting to upgrading the Pentagon’s largest helicopter repair facility to modernizing U.S. Navy ships with digital upgrades, Siemens is helping save energy and cut costs at a variety of federal agencies, buildings, facilities and installations. “The federal government is an important customer for Siemens,” said Barbara Humpton, President and CEO of Siemens Government Technologies, Inc. “We are so proud to work with federal agencies across the U. S. Government, from the U.S. Army to the National Park Service, to ensure their facilities and operations are more resilient, meet the White House energy conservation and sustainability targets, reduce carbon emissions and protect our nation’s security, while saving taxpayer dollars.” Humpton sees signs of additional federal opportunities in such areas as strengthening energy security at U.S. military installations (for example, with microgrids) and securing government computer networks from cyberattacks. Another trend area is the U.S. Army’s push for combined heat and power (CHP), also known as co-generation. The U.S. Secretary of the Army Eric Fanning has issued a challenge for the Army to commission 50 megawatts of new CHP projects annually over the next four years. Smart building technology and infrastructure, Humpton added, will also continue to be federal priorities. Siemens Continues to be a Lead ESCO for the Federal Government Siemens has secured a number of Energy Savings Performance Contracts (ESPCs), private-public partnerships that are good for our nation’s security, environment and taxpayers. As a leading energy service company (ESCO), Siemens implements strategic projects at federal sites that provide energy and water conservation technologies. The cost of these projects is funded by energy savings generated through these conservation measures. Notable recent ESPC wins by Siemens include: “Energy savings performance contracting has proven to be a cost-effective way for the federal government to meet operational and sustainability goals without impacting taxpayers,” says Dave Hopping, President of Siemens’ North American-based Building Technologies Division. “These upgrades will support the evolving needs of the sites and ensure they are prepared for our country’s needs in the future.” Siemens will install power generator step-up (GSU) transformers for the Bureau of Reclamation at Davis Dam on the Colorado River and for the Army Corps of Engineers at Fort Peck on the Missouri River in Montana, helping federal customers generate clean and reliable power. Hydroelectric generation is our nation’s largest producer of renewable power. Supporting the Army Corps of Engineers in Serving its Clients Over the past fiscal year, Siemens also received over 50 individual awards on its two Utility Monitoring and Control Systems (UMCS) vehicles with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers which has recognized that these contract vehicles provide the organization with a streamlined approach to meet their energy reduction goals at a reduced cost. With our product lifecycle management (PLM) software, Teamcenter, Siemens is supporting the U.S. Air Force and Special Operations Forces with acquisition and lifecycle maintenance planning and management. We also completed the first year of a project helping the U.S. Navy modernize the planning of maintenance activities in public shipyards. Siemens is also helping to improve the reliability and extend the service life of U.S. Navy Oilers. After successfully modernizing the shaft generator control systems on two of the U.S. Navy’s oilers this year, we will modernize two additional ships in 2017. These Henry J. Kaiser-class fleet replenishment oilers, retrofitted by Siemens, are operated by the United States Military Sealift Command. These modernization projects will improve the ships’ operations, reliability and efficiency. The original control systems still on board both ships relied on analog technology prevalent in the 1980s. Repairs to the control system required finding parts from that earlier generation – resulting in delays and increased operating costs. Upgraded technology will enable the ships to be serviced more easily and will allow the oilers to operate with greater reliability and less cost. From an efficiency perspective, the shaft generator systems enable the main propulsion engines to produce electrical power from the energy being delivered to the ships’ propellers. Momentum continues from the integration into Siemens of components of Dresser-Rand that focus on the federal government. On June 30, 2015, Siemens completed the acquisition of the Houston-based oil and gas company and formed a new business combining the Siemens compressor product and services businesses with the legacy Dresser-Rand business. A steam turbine plant in Wellsville NY, as well as service centers in Chula Vista CA, Chesapeake VA and Mayport FL are now part of Siemens Government Technologies (SGT D-R). SGT D-R’s Wellsville facility produces steam turbines for the global energy and power generation industry and the U.S. Navy. The plant continues to make important contributions to strengthening the Navy's steam capability by building turbines for Navy aircraft carriers and supporting the oil and gas industry. SGT Dresser-Rand continues to build on its equipment installation base in the U.S. Navy and is extending the portfolio of OEM equipment partners to ensure it meets the requirements of the U.S. Navy. Siemens was also awarded a contract to provide new low-pressure air compressors (LPACs) on the USS FORT LAUDERDALE, continuing a string of successes on amphibious platforms using Siemens low pressure air compressors and blowers. SGT D-R was also awarded over $5 million from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DoE) Water Power R&D program to develop a 1MW HydroAir turbine. This award is a testament to the work that has been completed on earlier phases of the HydroAir project as SGT D-R and Siemens will continue to work with DoE, the U.S. Navy and relevant State partners to ensure continued U.S. leadership in developing wave energy technology for both DOD facilities and potential utility customers. Siemens is a global powerhouse focusing on electrification, automation and digitalization. One of the world’s largest producers of energy-efficient, resource-saving technologies, Siemens is a leading supplier of systems for power generation and transmission as well as medical diagnosis.

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Riverbed Technology, the application performance company, today announced major updates to its SD-WAN offering Riverbed SteelConnect, an app-defined, cloud networking solution that provides an intelligent and simplified approach to designing, deploying and managing distributed networks. As part of today’s announcement, SteelConnect now supports complex enterprise environments and dramatically simplifies the implementation of large-scale SD-WAN deployments in the data center with non-disruptive network integration. Riverbed also announced availability of a new line of SteelHead SD models, which combines SteelConnect and industry-leading WAN optimization into a streamlined single-device solution, providing network-agility and one-click connectivity into Microsoft Azure and AWS for superior app and cloud performance. These announcements follow SteelConnect’s tremendous market momentum, in which the Company has surpassed 300 SD-WAN customers and 1,600 online SteelConnect trials. The cloud continues to grow at a rapid pace, with spending on public cloud services expected to reach $247 Billion in 2017 (up 18 percent from 2016), and $383 Billion by 2020, according to Gartner.1 While there’s been major advancements in cloud computing, cloud storage and cloud apps, traditional networking has been left behind. In fact, Gartner says 50% of cloud deployments will suffer from business-impacting performance issues, requiring extensive network redesign. Watch “Networking for the Cloud Era” Webcast beginning at 11 a.m. PT/2:00 p.m. ET on February 14; in EMEA on February 15 2:00 p.m. GMT/3 p.m. CET; and in APJ on February 15 12:00 SGT/15:00 AEDT “In today’s cloud era, legacy approaches to networking which are hardware-centric, rigid and error-prone are preventing businesses from moving forward,” said Paul O’Farrell, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Riverbed’s SteelConnect, SteelHead, and SteelFusion business units. “Riverbed has redefined networking for the cloud with an SD-WAN solution that is application and software-defined, and delivers unprecedented simplicity and agility. The market has responded with hundreds of customers deploying our SD-WAN solutions to date. With today’s SteelConnect and SteelHead SD launches, Riverbed is taking cloud networking one step further, with a new integrated offering driven by customer demand, and updates that deliver greater scalability, and superior network agility and cloud performance.” Watch Now: Learn how leading global professional services company GHD is using SteelConnect to quickly and cost-effectively connect 50 new offices to their network, and help them save approximately $1 million. Simplifying large-scale SD-WAN deployment. The new SteelConnect SDI-5030 Data Center Gateway Appliances simplify the deployment of SD-WAN for large-scale global networks. While other SD-WAN solutions can require thousands of lines of configuration updates and/or firmware upgrades to core data center routers, SteelConnect benefits from integration with the battle-tested Riverbed Interceptor appliance to non-disruptively integrate and orchestrate SD-WAN and WAN Optimization services into data center networks, with elastic scale and high-availability to support application delivery across thousands of remote locations. Combining SD-WAN and WAN-Optimization capabilities. Riverbed SteelConnect and industry-leading SteelHead WAN optimization work together to exchange application identification and classification information to ensure an end-to-end application-centric solution across the network and into the cloud. This is in contrast to dual-vendor approaches where the fidelity of application identity is compromised as packets transmit between discrete network services. The new line of SteelHead SD models (570-SD, 770-SD & 3070-SD) seamlessly integrates SD-WAN and WAN optimization services into a streamlined single-device offering. By deploying a unified solution combining SD-WAN (SteelConnect) and WAN optimization (SteelHead), enterprises can streamline and simplify their approach to cloud networking, drive network agility and deliver superior performance for on-premises and cloud-based applications with ease. “Even as enterprises embrace cloud computing for increased business agility, network-connectivity issues remain a major challenge,” said Brad Casemore, research director for datacenter networks at IDC. “Riverbed has responded by offering a solution that integrates SD-WAN and WAN optimization so that customers can have unified control and management of both traditional and hybrid-cloud networks. Interestingly, IDC research has found that the top three customer requirements for SD-WAN are security, WAN optimization, and policy control and management. With this announcement, Riverbed has sought to address all three concerns in a single device, while also providing their customers with more flexibility as they evolve their networks.” Continued SteelConnect momentum and innovation. SteelConnect, initially launched as an early access offering in April 2016, is the industry’s first and only product that unifies deployment and orchestration of hybrid WANs, branch networks, and cloud environments, including one-click connectivity to AWS and Microsoft Azure. SteelConnect also enables zero-touch provisioning, allowing an enterprise to set-up a global network and connect to the cloud in minutes, and easy ongoing network management that provides the ability to make network or business/application policy changes with a few clicks of a mouse. Riverbed announced general availability of SteelConnect 2.0 in September 2016 with many new features, including integrated visibility with Riverbed SteelCentral. In January 2017, Riverbed announced a “One-Click” cloud networking solution for secure connectivity to Microsoft Azure cloud networks. Now, Riverbed’s SD-WAN solution boasts seamless platform integration with the market-leading Riverbed SteelHead solution, and streamlined data center integration for large-scale deployments. Riverbed’s 300 SD-WAN customers spans across a wide range of industries globally, including retail, manufacturing, healthcare, professional services, finance, technology, and many more.

Operation Better: VRLIVE Teams Up with Hyundai in 360 Broadcast Execution of Super Bowl LI Commercial Los Angeles, CA, February 15, 2017 --( As the first company to ever live broadcast 360º video as early as 2014, virtual reality pioneer, VRLIVE’s technology spanned two continents to make this heartwarming concept a reality. “Seeing the emotional and social impact of boundless presence and connectivity, gives us an understanding of what the future holds, and what VRLIVE and this technology can do to push humanity and bring us together,” said VRLIVE CEO Heiner Lippman. The 90 second spot utilized VRLIVE technologies for the in-suite 360º video feed of the service members’ families. The feeds were then streamed directly to each soldier’s individual cylinder [provided by Igloo Vision Ltd.] in Poland, creating an immersive 360º experience that allowed each family to watch the Super Bowl together from the best seats in the house. Through thousands of feet of fiber optic cable from the stadium suite, the data reached a full broadcast studio housed within one 40' trailer, as well as a mobile satellite broadcast studio in another. Here, VRLIVE processed the raw video signal with dual-GPU and CPU servers and stitched the three raw camera feeds into a 4K 360° spherical video stream. Despite no internet connectivity and limited satellite bandwidth at the military base, VRLIVE was still able to provide a high quality experience. The VRLIVE video processor sliced out cylindrical strips of video from each 360° perspective and fit all three viewpoints into one 4K image for satellite distribution. From there, they delivered the real time composited video feed across Ku-band satellite encoders from Houston to Poland. There, each of the three military service member parents were seated in a fully immersive, 360° cylindrical projection environment, where VRLIVE delivered each live 360° panorama to its respective cylinder. Five projectors carefully blended their images to create a high resolution panorama that took advantage of VRLIVE's 4K stream from Houston. The far-from-home soldiers were literally surrounded by their loved ones. Inside each cylinder, 2D traditional cameras sent a satellite video and audio stream back to Houston, allowing the families to communicate with each other in real time. “It was an extreme pleasure working with Hyundai, Film 45, and INNOCEAN on this project. It truly felt like one big family working together to share what’s really important, family and love!”, said VRLIVE Head of Content, Dann Saxton.
