Tanknology Announces New Licensee
Covering the Netherlands and Belgium

Austin, TX – Tanknology Inc. announced today the signing of a new international licensee in The Netherlands. Amsterdam-based Tanktechniek will provide the company's underground storage tank (UST), line and leak detector testing and UST video inspection services throughout the territory of the Netherlands and Belgium.

Tanktechniek has licensed Tanknology's patented VacuTect® Tank Testing System and completed training and certification of its technicians. As Tanknology's exclusive agent, Tanktechniek is now launching itself as a significant force in the UST testing market in these two countries.

Tanktechniek will also provide highly detailed tank inspections utilizing Tanknology's proprietary PetroScope® Remote Camera Unmanned Internal Tank Inspection System to customers in the region.

According to Ronald Molhuijsen of Tanktechniek, the company will be using the PetroScope system to verify the integrity of the internal coating of steel USTs, as required by Dutch regulations. The PetroScope system has been approved for required 15-year inspections of tanks containing a 100% internal coating.

Ignacio Allende, Vice President of Tanknology's International Operations, said that the addition of Tanktechniek to the company's roster of International Licensees fills a strategic block in northern Europe.

“This is a region that we have been targeting for a number of years,” Allende said. “We could not be happier about this new partnership with Tanktechniek, as the company is a very strong player in the petroleum services industry of this region. They are an excellent fit for Tanknology's tank testing and inspection services and we have high expectations for their ability to be successful in these markets.”

Tanktechniek specializes in the design, construction and installation of aboveground and underground tank systems, providing turnkey design and construction for fueling facilities and gas stations. Additional services include soil, water and tank remediation, testing and inspections.

Contact details for Tanktechniek are as follows: Ronald Molhuijsen can be reached via email or telephone at +31 (20) 66 75 250.

Based in Austin, Texas, Tanknology operates across America and around the world, providing environmental compliance testing and related services at more than 50,000 petroleum fueling and storage facilities per year, for more than 3,000 customers.
