Other deals include countries like Indonesia, Italy, Ecuador, Canada and Australia, although the company has not publicly stated how much each of those deals is worth.

The agreements include providing tech support for a Royal Dutch Shell liquefied natural gas platform in western Australia.  The company is also teaming with Anheuser-Busch InBev to promote energy and water efficiency at the company’s China facilities.
