Leighton O’Brien has formed a strategic partnership with Wolftank Adisa Group to introduce and market its technology suite throughout Western Europe.
Australia-based Leighton O’Brien already operates in 19 countries through 57 distributors offering its Wetstock Live software and field technologies such as tank and line testing, fuel polishing and tank cleaning.
Wolftank Adisa Group is a tank lining technology company based in Switzerland.
Wolftank will become a licensed service partner for Leighton O’Brien’s leak detection and fuel restoration technologies throughout Western Europe which complement Wolftank’s existing suite of tank lining technology solutions.
Leighton O’Brien CEO Reed Leighton said the partnership will enable Leighton O’Brien to introduce and market its technology suite throughout Western Europe, as well as market and support Wolftank’s technology portfolio in the Asia Pacific region.
“There are many commercial and cultural synergies between our companies,” he said.
“Our leak detection and cleaning solutions complements their premium monitoring and cleaning offerings to provide a comprehensive, best in class technology suite to help fuel retailers optimise their fuel tank and equipment assets, prevent leaks and ensure optimum health of their tanks systems.
“There is also strong alignment with our organisational values and approach to business in terms of being leaders in safety and quality, excellence in customer experience, valuing local relationships and dedication to bringing best of breed technology solutions to market.
“Europe, like the USA and Australia, has moved to modern fuel formulations which are changing the rules for fuel retailers and preserving the lifecycle of their storage tank asset. Major oil companies need to perform divestment and acquisition testing with the best technology available and third party review to protect their interests.”
Peter Werth, CEO of Wolftank, said: “I am particularly happy to complete our service portfolio with this advanced technology, offering the best available solution to our customers.
“This partnership also enables us to extend our cleaning solutions for tanks in operation to remediate microbial growth, phase separation and water contamination.”
