Tanknology Announces New Licensee
in Honduras

Austin, TX – Tanknology Inc. announced today the signing of a new international licensee in Honduras.

Based in San Pedro Sula, SERTESA (Servicios Técnicos S.A.) will provide underground storage tank (UST) and line tightness testing using Tanknology's proprietary VacuTect® and TLD-1® technologies. SERTESA technicians have recently completed the Tanknology training and certification program, and will now offer these testing services to the Honduran market, including to a U.S. based Major Oil Company.

SERTESA has been a strong player in the Honduran fueling facility and gas station industry since its formation in 1997. The company offers full construction services including design, installation of tanks, and other components including ATG equipment and dispensers. SERTESA also provides preventative and corrective maintenance solutions.

A VacuTect test offers 100% probability of leak detection, continuously monitors vacuum cycles and water level, and most tanks can be tested within two hours with immediate results attained through a self-calibrating system and proprietary software — making it the most accurate technology available.

Juan Carlos Cano, General Manager of SERTESA, stated that the interest in the VacuTect system was due to its reliability and precision in leak detection. He continued, “Our partnership with Tanknology will differentiate SERTESA from its competitors and drive the company forward to further improvements.”

“We are pleased to have SERTESA as the newest member of the Tanknology International Licensee network," said Ignacio Allende, Vice President of Tanknology's International Division. "One of SERTESA's key clients in Honduras is a U.S. Major Oil Company that has utilized Tanknology's VacuTect tank testing system in multiple markets around the world. SERTESA will use Tanknology's system for this client's fueling sites, ensuring that testing is carried out consistently with the precise standards the client has defined.”

Allende added, “Many of our International Licensees perform work for US and international Major Oil Companies using our VacuTect system, which they recognize for its precision, accuracy and consistent performance around the globe.”

Contact details for SERTESA are as follows: Juan Carlos Cano can be reached via email, telephone +504 2554-4214, or online.

Ignacio Allende can be reached via email or by telephone at +1 (512) 380-7129
