Tanknology Announces Addition
Of International Licensee in Saudi Arabia

Austin, TX — Tanknology Inc.announced today that UETL, of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, has joined its expanding network of International Licensees.

UETL is a subsidiary of Saudi Company for Environmental Works Ltd (SEW), the largest environmental services company in Saudi Arabia. According to Ignacio Allende, Tanknology’s Director of International Operations, UETL is offering the company’s proprietary underground storage tank testing technology, its VacuTect® system, as well as its TLD1 line testing technology.

The VacuTect system, which utilizes a vacuum-based approach, is the world’s leading tank testing technology. Developed and patented by Tanknology, the VacuTect system has been used on more than 1 million UST tests around the world.

UETL is led by Abdul Hakim Sahab, the Managing Director. Its team is currently completing training and certification on Tanknology’s testing systems, and will be fully operational later this month.

“The UST environmental testing market is in its infancy in Saudi Arabia, where there are approximately 7,000 sites,” Allende said. “UETL, as part of the largest environmental services and waste management company in the country, is perfectly positioned for success as a licensee of Tanknology’s industry-leading compliance testing services. We are excited about the prospects for significant growth in Saudi Arabia and surrounding countries in the region.”
