Windsor, CT (PRWEB) September 22, 2012
Envirotest Systems Corp. (Envirotest), announced today that it has reached an agreement with Madrid based Technet Sostenibilidad en Transporte, S.L. (Technet) for representation of its unique Remote Sensing Device technology across the European Union. The agreement grants Technet the exclusive rights to sell and deliver Remote Sensing Device services throughout Europe.
“Since 2005, Technet has worked to develop a background and presence in the European emissions testing, air quality and traffic management markets and has developed the technical capabilities to effectively sell and operate Remote Sensing Device programs,” stated Mark San Fratello, Envirotest President & CEO. “We are excited to support Technet’s aggressive expansion plans across the European Continent,” he added. Josefina de la Fuente, CEO of Technet, confirmed its intention to implement Remote Sensing programs throughout Europe: “We are glad that Envirotest has chosen Technet as its partner in Europe. All major European cities have air quality problems. We’re convinced that Remote Sensing can be an effective solution for Europe, since it detects polluters and inefficient vehicles and gives policy makers the data to take corrective actions and monitor air quality program impact.” Technet serves both public administrations and private companies: “Dirty vehicles are often also inefficient in fuel consumption. We can identify the highest polluting vehicles for air quality purposes and help corporations reduce fuel consumption at the same time,” she added.
Envirotest’s unique Remote Sensing Devices or RSDs are specially designed emissions analyzers that are placed roadside to measure specific vehicle emissions using low-intensity infrared and ultraviolet beams. RSDs collect emissions data as vehicles are driven in normal everyday use without the need for a vehicle to stop or even slow down. The data collected by RSDs are used for a wide variety of high value applications focused on improving air quality and motor vehicle compliance.
