Austin, TX — Tanknology Inc. (www.tanknology.com) announced today that Ecología y Petróleo (EPSA) of Tampico, Tamaulipas, Mexico has become an International Licensee of the company.
EPSA currently performs Underground Storage Tank (UST) testing and related services for fueling facilities throughout various states of the Mexican Republic. EPSA is certified by PEMEX, the largest oil company in Mexico, to perform tank and line tightness testing at its branded facilities.
According to Ignacio Allende, Tanknology’s Director of International Operations, EPSA will now offer tank tests utilizing the company’s SureTest® tank testing system and ullage tests using its U3 Ullage testing device.
“The addition of Tanknology’s SureTest® tank testing method will provide a significant competitive advantage for EPSA,” Allende said. “Currently, EPSA uses a common overfill tank testing method, which requires the operator to arrange to top-off fuel levels in each tank immediately prior to a tank test. The SureTest® system is certified to test tanks of any fuel level, eliminating the need for a special, coordinated delivery. That saves tank operators considerable time and money.”
Carmen Elizondo, the General Director of EPSA, said that the Tanknology tank testing system was an ideal solution for her organization and that they are proud to now have the opportunity to offer Tanknology’s more accurate and reliable tightness testing to customers throughout Mexico.
“Tanknology is well known throughout the world as the leader in UST compliance testing equipment and services,” Elizondo said. “We are very excited to now be offering our customers in Mexico access to more convenient and accurate testing using Tanknology’s high quality equipment. The ability to now test tanks without the need to fill them prior to testing will be very well received by our customers.”
Based in Austin, Texas, Tanknology operates across America and around the world, providing UST environmental compliance testing and related services at more than 50,000 sites per year, for more than 3,000 customers. Internationally, Tanknology licensees span more than 25 countries, providing services to the largest petroleum retailers in the world.
