Published on 2011-07-07. Author : SpecialChem

NAPLES, Fla. -- Industrial Nanotech, Inc., an emerging global leader in nanoscience energy saving solutions, announced that they have received a 2,973 gallon order from Montaco, the industrial contractor awarded the bid to install the Company's patented Nansulate® Translucent PT insulation and corrosion control coating on fuel oil tanks at the Porto refinery in Portugal, also known as Matosinhos refinery, owned by Galp Energia. This order represents a sale amount of over $225,800 and follows a prior order last year from another Porto refinery project where the coatings were specified for insulation and corrosion prevention of an oil pipeline.

"This project was specified last fall. We are pleased to see this project underway for insulation and corrosion control of large fuel oil storage tanks," stated Francesca Crolley, V.P. of Business Development for Industrial Nanotech, Inc. "Part of our long-term strategy was to have Nansulate® insulation technology specified as the insulation and corrosion control product of choice in both industrial and building projects worldwide. Over the past seven years in applications worldwide, Nansulate® has achieved a solid track record of superior performance, outstanding durability, and exceptionally rapid return on investment. Nansulate® has gained recognition in many industry sectors as the next generation of insulation and surface protection. We look forward to also forging a relationship with Montaco, a well-known industrial contractor in their country who specializes in anti-corrosive treatments, concrete protection, rehabilitation of equipment and buildings, and construction and specialty painting. We anticipate additional projects, in which Nansulate® is the specified product solution, being awarded through a bid process and commencing this year in other countries."

Galp Energia SGPS SA, Portugal's biggest oil company, plans to invest 5.2 billion euros ($6.5 billion) through 2013 as it develops projects including Tupi, the biggest oil discovery in the Americas in three decades. Galp plans to spend 2.2 billion euros on its refining and marketing division, mostly on conversion projects at its Sines and Porto refineries as it tries to increase diesel output and improve refining margins. Galp Energia acquires from several suppliers the crude oil that is processed in its refineries at Sines and Porto. These refineries have a total refining capacity of 310 thousand barrels of crude oil a day, or 20% of the Iberian Peninsula's refining capacity.
