("Cleantech Solutions" or "the Company") (NASDAQ: CLNT), a manufacturer of metal components and assemblies, primarily for the wind power industry as well as solar and other industries, announced today that the Company has delivered two units of sample sapphire chambers and one unit of a solar furnace to its international customer.

In August 2011, Cleantech Solutions received a sample order from this customer to deliver the solar furnace, which is used in the manufacture of poly-silicon wafers. In August 2011, the Company received a sample order to deliver to this customer sapphire chambers, which can be used in the manufacturing of LED general lighting applications. Cleantech Solutions delivered these sample orders by February 15, 2012. Following the completion of testing and approval of the initial units by the customer, the Company expects its customer to place additional orders for sapphire chambers and solar furnaces. However, the Company cannot predict the extent or timing of new orders if follow-on orders are placed.

"Following delivery of the sample orders, we are in close contact with our customer to provide technical consulting as required. We believe there is a significant market potential for our solar furnaces used in manufacturing of poly-silicon wafers," commented Mr. Jianhua Wu, Chairman and CEO of Cleantech Solutions. "The general LED lighting market continues to present an attractive growth opportunity driven by governments worldwide encouraging the transition from fluorescent and incandescent lighting in commercial and residential applications to LED lighting, which is more energy efficient. We are optimistic about the growth of our solar business and entry into the LED general lighting industry. In fiscal 2012, we hope to see an increasing revenue contribution from the clean energy sector."
