Wolftank Group has announced that the company is rolling out its industrial coating solutions in Brazil following the first successfully implemented tank coating projects for a leading South-American energy company.

Draped Brazil flagWolftank’s patented technology can convert single-walled tanks used for the storage of potentially hazardous liquids such as fuels or chemicals into double-walled tanks. A leakage warning system ensures maximum protection for the environment.

Using the DOPA technology, tanks can be refurbished instead of being expensively replaced. The double-walled coating makes them more valuable than new tanks, as they are also suitable for e-fuels.

The group sees potential for the application and aims to carry out around 3,000 tank refurbishments in Brazil over the next five years. With the use of DOPA, the tanks are restored to like-new condition, thus avoiding a time-consuming, costly, and resource-intensive replacement.

Peter Werth, CEO of Wolftank Group, says: ‘We have made a massive contribution with our DOPA system; our product is practically unrivalled due to its simple, fast and cost-effective use combined with the highest quality… We have the right product at the right time and are ready to take full advantage of this big potential.’
