 Press Releases

  • CALGARY, AB (October 12, 2017) INNOVA Global Ltd. (INNOVA), an international leader in emissions and noise control, announced today that it has acquired the shares of the multinational gas turbine auxiliary equipment specialist, Braden, from Global Power Equipment Group. The acquisition includes Braden Manufacturing LLC (BUSA) in Tulsa, Consolidated Fabricators (CFI) in Auburn, Massachusetts and Braden-Europe (BEUR) located in Heerlen, the Netherlands.

    The acquisition of Braden allows INNOVA to expand its global reach with added market presence in North, Central and South America, as well as Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, China and, Australasia.

    INNOVA’s President and CEO Harry Wong said the combination of INNOVA and Braden brings together strong project experience and the product offering of two global leaders in their fields. “As a result of this transaction, INNOVA will expand its international footprint into Europe, China, the Middle East and North Africa as well as strengthen its presence in the US and the Americas”, Mr. Wong said. “Importantly, the clients of the combined entity will benefit greatly from the breadth of prequalified product designs and solutions to service its clients worldwide.”

    “We look forward to strengthening our operations through extension of the technical capabilities, global supply chain, and expansion of product offerings through the combined INNOVA-Braden team,” he said.

    “Similarly, we also plan to work with the strong CFI team to strengthen its product offering to existing clients and to manufacture some of their current specialized parts.”

    “Braden Europe provides INNOVA with an important base within the European Union and a pathway to offer additional products and services to clients within BEUR’s geographical markets.”

    Braden has a unique gas turbine aftermarket retrofit and parts business, which offer clients the option of upgrading and improving auxiliary equipment requiring repairs or replacement - from filter houses to exhaust silencers and stacks, diverter dampers, and a complete line of in-duct products. “This aftermarket and retrofit operation will add a new dimension to INNOVA’s product and service offering which we plan to support with our in-house construction group and grow into a much larger business,” Mr. Wong said.

    The Braden transaction, follows INNOVA’s acquisition earlier this year of the liquidated intellectual property assets of Express Integrated Technologies (EIT) a leader in Selective Catalytic Reduction Systems and Once Through Steam Generators (OTSGs).

  • CALGARY, AB (December 5, 2017) – International emissions and noise control leader Innova Global Limited (INNOVA) has won over $43 million worth of new work since merging with Braden in October - positioning the expanded group for continued strong growth into 2018.

    The new orders largely relate to a range of gas-fired power projects in North America, but also include contracts for work from Australia, Mexico, Chile, Jamaica, Pakistan and Russia.


    INNOVA’s President and CEO Harry Wong said the significant tranche of new work orders validated the strategic decision to acquire the Braden businesses and further underpinned confidence in INNOVA’s long term future and growth.

    “Most of these orders for gas turbine halls, acoustic building envelopes, gas turbine exhausts with silencers, diffusers and inlet filter houses involve existing clients who clearly value the INNOVA-Braden team’s track record for consistent quality and results.” Mr. Wong said.

    “One project involves a site wide acoustic guarantee to achieve compliance of a 700 MW power plant in specific octave bands, including at 16 Hertz. As far as we know, INNOVA is the only contractor to guarantee entire sites for such low frequencies. Our experience over 40 years and extensive R&D program involving materials testing, on-site noise level measurements and a combination of CFD, FEA and flow modeling are reasons why INNOVA can offer this make-good acoustic guarantee”.

    “Another project involves the design, supply and installation of acoustic treatments for two 644 MW power plants in California to meet particularly stringent noise restrictions under multiple operating conditions, including start-up and shut-down.”

    These US $43m of firm orders adds to a backlog for 2018 which is the highest in INNOVA’s history and 40% above the backlog for 2017.

    Braden, a multinational gas turbine auxiliary equipment specialist, comprises of Braden Manufacturing LLC (BUSA) in Tulsa, Consolidated Fabricators (CFI) in Auburn, Massachusetts and Braden-Europe (BEUR) located in Heerlen, the Netherlands.

    The acquisition from Global Power Group in October 2017 enabled INNOVA to expand its global reach with added market presence in North, Central and South America, as well as Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, China and, Australasia.

    Clients of the combined entity can expect to benefit greatly from the breadth of OEM prequalified product designs and solutions now available worldwide.

    • For one time or infrequent conversion

    Retrofit-able Tee Box:

    • Pre-designed for conversion into a diverter damper
    • When future conversion to combined cycle may be a possibility

    We can create reliable, robust and effective designs to meet any system and compliance requirements, as we take into account such critical areas as:

    • Thermally compensating diverter blade and blade supports
    • Robust diverter toggle drive systems
    • Baffle support systems and silencing baffles

    Engineering Innovation

    A traditional problem with diverter dampers are the “hot spots” at the seal land area, which result in issues with personnel safety as well as diverter damper functionality. INNOVA Braden Europe has created a patented seal land system that solves the “hot spot” issue, resulting in a more robust and cost-saving system.

    INNOVA Braden Europe uses in-house CFD and 3D modeling, as well as finite element analysis to ensure that all design limits for pressure drop, local velocity limits in critical silencer sections, and non-cyclonic flow requirements are met.

    Whatever your needs are, we can offer the optimum solution, balancing capital costs, construction time/costs, and operational flexibility.
