OLATHE, Kan., Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Elecsys Corporation (NASDAQ: ESYS),
a provider of innovative machine to machine (M2M) communication technology
solutions, data acquisition systems, and custom electronic equipment for
critical industrial applications, announced today that it has received a $1.25
million order from the Al Rushaid Group to supply remote monitoring equipment
for deployment in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The Al Rushaid Group, one of
the largest industrial companies in Saudi Arabia and a major supplier to Saudi
Aramco, represents Elecsys and provides sales and service support for Elecsys
products in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Bahrain.

The Elecsys equipment will be installed as part of a larger project and will
enable remote monitoring of cathodic protection system performance at
approximately 600 seawater injection wells in the Ghawar oil field. The
Elecsys wireless devices monitor multiple system parameters and transmit data
for integration into the oil field operator's supervisory control and data
acquisition (SCADA) system. This project is a key element in the growing
utilization of smart oil field technologies to maximize oil field production
and extract resources more efficiently. The Company expects to complete
delivery of this order before the end of this year.

Karl B. Gemperli, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "The ruggedness and
reliability of our products, notably their ability to survive exposure to high
temperatures and harsh environments, makes them ideal for deployment at well
sites, pipelines, refineries, storage terminals, and other remote locations in
the energy sector. We look forward to working closely with the Al Rushaid
Group to ensure the success of this project and believe that combining our
technologies with the resources and capabilities of Al Rushaid will yield many
opportunities to develop additional solutions for this growing market in the
future."
