Avingtrans Plc

("Avingtrans", the "Company", or the "Group")

Contract Wins


Avingtrans PLC (AIM: AVG), which designs, manufactures and supplies critical
components, modules, systems and associated services to the energy, medical
and industrial sectors, is pleased to announce new contract wins for Booth
Industries, Energy Steel and Hayward Tyler, Inc.

Booth Industries Secures £6m Contract Win

Booth Industries, the Bolton-based manufacturer of high-integrity
performance-assured protection systems, has strengthened its position in the
nuclear market with a contract worth approximately £6 million to supply
specialist doors for a UK Government agency. The contract comes c.12 months
after Booth was awarded a similar contract and continues the company's
impressive turnaround since its acquisition by Avingtrans Plc in 2019.

This significant contract win reinforces Booth's position as the leading
specialist door supplier in the nuclear and defence industries. Winning this
contract not only recognises the Group's ability to design and manufacture
reliable, performance-assured solutions for this security-critical industry,
but also Booth's growing reputation for delivery and aftercare, which is built
on decades of experience in the sector.

Austen Adams, managing director of Avingtrans' Process Solutions and Rotating
Equipment division, commented:

"We're delighted that the Booth success story continues to gather momentum,
with the business making a strong contribution to the division's growing
profile in the nuclear industry. The team has created a strong order pipeline
and, with a new manufacturing facility that takes its overall manufacturing
capacity to 6,400m2, it also has the capacity it needs to support continuing

"When we acquired the assets of the business in 2019, we could not have
foreseen the challenges that would be thrown up by the Covid-19 pandemic over
the next two years, but the team has pulled together tremendously during that
time, turning around the business and creating strong foundations on which to
build. It's exciting times for everyone associated with the business and we're
looking forward to delivering another critical infrastructure project for one
of our key customers."

Energy Steel and Hayward Tyler, Inc. Secure Contracts to Support ITER Fusion

Energy Steel and Hayward Tyler, Inc. have been awarded multi-million dollar
contracts to support the ITER project in France. Energy Steel's contract will
supply 62 solenoid valve and cubicle packages and Hayward Tyler's will supply
variable drive booster pumps.  These contracts follow previous awards that
ITER has made to the Engineered Pumps and Motors Division of Avingtrans.

The ITER project is a joint international research and development venture
with the programmatic goal of demonstrating the scientific and technical
feasibility of fusion power. The demonstration facility is under construction
in St.-Paul-lez-Durance, France, and will be the largest fusion experimental
reactor in the world.

Energy Steel's solenoid valve and cubicle packages will be an integral part of
the primary cooling water system (TCWS) and will be used to control heat
removal from ITER's magnetic fusion reactor. The solenoid valve and cubicle
package will be in accordance with various international and project-specific
standards and delivered to the ITER facility in France.

Hayward Tyler's booster pumps will be an integral part of the drying system
for the Tokamak Cooling Water System (TCWS) and will be designed, built, and
tested at Hayward Tyler, Inc. in Colchester, Vermont.

Mike Turmelle, Managing Director of the Engineered Pumps and Motors Division
of Avingtrans, said:

"We are elated that two of our companies can supply products that will
contribute to this ambitious project. We're committed and proud to contribute
to the advanced nuclear industry."
