Total Safety Lands Major Deal in Central America

Houston – April 2, 2009

Total Safety, the global leader of integrated industrial safety services and equipment, was awarded a major safety project by San Salvador-based Monelca, which is El Salvador’s leading general construction company.

A Complete Fire Protection System

Total Safety was chosen to design, supply, support the installation and provide on-site training for a complete fire protection system for a new tank farm being constructed in Port of Acajutla in western El Salvador.

The scope of the project includes fire protection for eight tanks which hold refined petroleum products, one sphere which stores gases under pressure and a truck loading facility.

Major components of the new comprehensive fire protection system include: foam systems, deluge systems, custom fire suppression systems and fire monitors.

Safety is the First Priority

“Tank farms are potentially very dangerous areas because the stored liquids are extremely volatile.

Special precautions are required because you’re not only dealing with the safety of the actual tank farm location, but you have to consider the safety of the surrounding areas as well,” said Carlos Siso, Total Safety Manager of International Business Development.

Siso continued, “Our first priority is to ensure that all government standards and regulations are met on the behalf of Monelca which helps keep workers and the neighboring communities safe. Because this is such a critical project Total Safety is honored to have Monelca as a valued partner and that they chose us for this assignment.”

“Total Safety’s reputation as a leader in safety services precedes itself, which is why we wanted to work with them on this important project. Monelca has partnered with them before, and we know firsthand that they bring an expertise that is unmatched by other safety service companies,” said Manuel Vieytez, president and owner of Monelca.
