* EUR1.5 million (m) initial order for jacking pipes in Romania * EUR1.0m order for power masts in Hungary * Positive outlook thanks to order backlog of EUR41m as at 28 February 2009

SW Umwelttechnik - a Vienna listed family firm with its core markets in  Central and Southeastern Europe (CSE) - has recorded a further increase in order  books. The environmental technology group's Water Conservation business sector has  won further major contracts in its core Austrian, Hungarian  and  Romanian  markets. And despite weak construction activity in  Hungary,  the  Infrastructure  sector has booked project orders. Meanwhile SW Umwelttechnik has  again   increased  its share of the Romanian market in recent months.

The need to meet EU environmental standards is leading  to  rapid   upgrading  of Romania's water supply and wastewater disposal infrastructure. SW  Umwelttechnik has won a EUR1.5m order to supply 3 km of jacking pipes and about  1,000 manholes for a sewerage project in Baneasa, a suburb of Bucharest. Work is due to  begin at once and is expected to be completed towards the end of 2010.

The Infrastructure sector has booked a EUR0.8m order related to   modernisation of the railway network. SW Umwelttechnik will supply  a drainage  system  for the Campina-Predeal section of the Bucharest-Brasov line. And despite the harsh economic backdrop in Hungary the Infrastructure sector  is also executing two new projects there. SW Umwelttechnik has  won  an  EUR1m order from E.ON to supply electricity masts for a project due for  completion in  May 2010. And the industrial and commercial building segment of the market came  to life with a EUR0.3m order for a shopping  centre  and  multi-storey car  park  in Debrecen.

At the end of February order backlog was a satisfactory EUR41m compared  with EUR45 a year earlier. Romania was already the largest market, accounting  for 45%  of the total, followed by Hungary (33%) and Austria  (unchanged  at  10%). Due  to growing municipal investment in infrastructure, which is also set  for a  boost from planned stimulus  packages,  SW  Umwelttechnik  is  looking  for a   stable financial performance this year.

Founded in 1910, SW Umwelttechnik remains a family business, though it has  been listed on the Vienna Stock Exchange since 1997.  The   group  is  known  for  its commitment  to  sustainable  enterprise   and  rapid  expansion  in  Central  and Southeastern Europe (CSE). Its  innovative  environmental  engineering  products are contributing to infrastructure renewal in CSE.
