Hanoi, Vietnam: Environmental Source Samplers, Inc. (ESS) continues growth in the Asian market with recent relative accuracy test audit (RATA) and air emissions test programs for clients in the Philippines region. ESS most recently secured 2013 annual contracts for emissions testing and RATA sampling for Taheiyo Cement’s San Fernando Plant and Shell’s Batangas Refinery.
The sampling at Shell Batangas Refinery will include the conduct of three (3) RATAs at multiple sources for the evaluation of oxygen (O2), carbon dioxide (CO2), sulfur dioxide (SO2), oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and carbon monoxide (CO).
The sampling at Taheiyo San Fernando Cement Plant includes the measurement of dioxins/furans (TCDD/TCDF), hydrogen chloride (HCl), and particulate (PM) for performance testing purposes.
As ESS’s work has grown in the Asian market, it has been ever important to maintain staff and a local presence in these markets. In January 2013, ESS opened an Asian headquarters in Hanoi, Vietnam. In early February, ESS signed an agreement with Berkman Systems, the most established Philippines environmental consulting firm, to partner in specialty air quality consulting projects.
This partnership allowed ESS to combine its presence with Berkman’s operations in Metro Manila, Cebu and Davao, and to provide cost effective solutions and superior technical support for clients’ consulting and air testing needs.
Mark Looney, President of ESS, stated: “. . . with the combined technical strengths of ESS and Berkman, we have created a dominant partnership in the Philippines. ESS is proud of our growing list of clients and our ongoing relationship with Berkman.”
