Ridgeline Launches Water Storage System
Water storage systems to be manufactured in Wyoming USA
CALGARY, Aug. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – Ridgeline Energy Services Inc.
(“Ridgeline” or the “Company”) (TSXV: RLE, OTCQX: RGDEF, FSE: RL7) an
energy services and water treatment company, today announced the launch
of its Zero Evaporative Low Impact Storage System, known as “ZELISS”.
ZELISS is a further advancement of the ZIETS product announced by
Ridgeline in November of 2011. ZELISS systems are being manufactured at
Ridgeline’s newly opened Deaver, Wyoming USA plant, located in north
central Wyoming, near the Montana Stated Line.
Tony Ker, CEO of Ridgeline Energy Services, commented “We are very
pleased to announce the launch of our own engineered and manufactured
storage system. After over a year of research and direct input from our
current clients, I feel that our storage system, which we call ZELISS,
will lead applications in the oil and gas industry.
ZELISS is designed to be installed by two people using only a field
grade forklift. ZELISS has the ability to eliminate evaporation, and is
integrated with three of Ridgeline’s water treatment processes. The
main cell of the ZELISS system weighs less than 1300 U.S. Pounds, and
the secondary containment is integral to the design. ZELISS is
engineered to grow in “cells” and can be scaled up to store millions of
gallons of water in a 100% sealed system, with an integrated secondary
containment system. It can grow and contract in size daily or even
hourly, if required, depending on storage demand, and capacities
desired. ZELISS can be heated to temperatures in excess of 90 degrees
Celsius, and operate in temperatures below minus 70 degrees Celsius.
ZELISS is substantially less costly to manufacture and install as
compared to the common “steel pool” design. It also eliminates the use
of cranes and pickers necessary to install older, obsolete designs.
Tony Ker, CEO stated “We are very pleased with our cost of manufacture
and assembly. We estimate that the cost of manufacturing will be 60 to
70% less than the cost of current steel “open top” or exposed surface
“Ridgeline will deliver the first ZELISS system to our current customers
in Texas, and we will also be utilizing ZELISS in a remediation project
in California” stated Dennis M. Danzik Ridgeline Director of
Engineering and Operations.” “Initial reaction to ZELISS has been very
strong and exciting. We expect rental revenues to start in September of
Testing and Production
Ridgeline has been working on the development of ZELISS for nearly 14
months, which included customer input from several oil and gas firms,
as well as comments and suggestions from some of Ridgeline’s over 150
industrial waste water customers.
“ZELISS is a true technology. Great applied science for the oil and gas
industry. It offers controls to evaporation, offers initial water
treatment, as well as protects the environment and animal life. All of
these great attributes are a credit to our engineering and industrial
design teams.” stated Dennis M. Danzik. “I am proud to be a part of the
development of ZELISS.”
