- May 22, 2012
NAPLES, Fla. -- Industrial Nanotech, Inc., an emerging global leader in nanotechnology based energy saving and sustainable solutions announced that they have received an order of 2,150 gallons of the Company's patented Nansulate® Translucent PT insulation and corrosion control coating from Montaco, the industrial contractor awarded the bid to apply Nansulate® on fuel oil tanks at the Matosinhos refinery in Portugal owned by Galp Energia. This total price of the order is $163,298 and is the third order in the past 19 months for projects at the refinery covering both fuel oil storage tanks and an oil pipeline for insulation and corrosion prevention.
"Galp Energia continues to upgrade their Portugal refineries on an ongoing basis and we look forward continuing to supply them with Nansulate® Translucent PT," stated Francesca Crolley, V.P. of Business Development for Industrial Nanotech, Inc. "The fuel oil storage tank project, which began with large applications of Nansulate® last year, was paused during the winter season and is continuing now that the warmer weather has returned. Nansulate® industrial coatings provide a superior solution for insulation of pipes, tanks and other equipment due to their excellent thermal performance as well as combination of other qualities such as corrosion prevention, moisture resistance, and ability to stand up to the harshest of environments."
Galp Energia SGPS SA, Portugal's biggest oil company, has activities that span from exploration and production of oil and natural gas to refining and marketing oil products, natural gas marketing and sales and power generation.
