Senet’s EnerTrac Tank Monitoring Solution Acquired by Independent Technologies

WESROC Division of Independent Technologies expands tank monitoring portfolio with solution run on Senet’s low power wide area network

Portsmouth, NH – (December 11, 2017) – Senet, a leading provider of cloud-based software, global connectivity service platforms and network build-outs for the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to sell its fuel delivery and monitoring solution, EnerTrac, to the WESROC division of Independent Technologies.

After building EnerTrac into an industry leading productivity enhancing solution for the propane and heating oil tank monitoring markets, Senet is ideally positioned to deliver the solution to a company in a strong industry position to significantly increase market penetration and further advance its value in the tank monitoring market. As part of the agreement, Senet will provide critical network connectivity and build out services to WESROC, on an exclusive basis, as the company expands its portfolio to include LoRaWAN monitors and low cost, long range LoRaWAN connectivity.

EnerTrac optimizes delivery efficiency by using affordable monitors to capture customer fuel tank levels throughout the day. This data is transmitted over the Senet network directly to the customer’s back-office software as actionable intelligence. Companies use EnerTrac to save on fuel delivery costs, more accurately forecast fuel usage, reduce the carbon footprint of their delivery fleet and to improve their overall customer experience.

“We’ve gained significant knowledge from building the EnerTrac solution from the ground up and have leveraged those learnings to assist in the development of other highly scalable, secure and cost effective IoT connectivity platforms and applications,” said Senet CEO Bruce Chatterley. “Following this sale, we look forward to a strong and long-lasting partnership with WESROC, providing them with LoRaWAN connectivity solutions to help expand and grow their tank monitoring product line in North America and around the world.”

WESROC has a broad range of monitoring solutions that are adaptable to the specific needs of companies that store and distribute propane and refined fuels, with capabilities to measure, monitor, track and report. The company has a reputation for strong engineering and excellent customer service, while manufacturing high quality, durable and reliable hardware.

“The acquisition of EnerTrac further establishes Independent Technologies as the industry leader in tank monitoring systems,” said Hank Smith, CEO and President of Independent Technologies. “This is a significant addition to our product line which allows us to fit nearly any need or budget. We look forward to working with Senet to expand deployments of the EnerTrac solution and to meet the growing demand for automated tank monitoring solutions in North America and around the world.”

Killington Receives Positive Snow Control for Audi FIS World Cup Race November 24-26

International Ski Federation gives green light to Killington Xfinity Cup Race

KILLINGTON, Vt. – Vermont’s Killington Resort, the largest ski and snowboard resort in Eastern North America and part of the POWDR adventure lifestyle company, is pleased to have received a positive snow control announcement from FIS (Internal Ski Federation), the governing body of the Audi FIS Ski World Cup.

According to FIS: “This is to inform you that the Ladies’ Audi FIS Ski World Cup races in Killington (USA) are confirmed following the official snow control from today 16th November 2017. As scheduled, the races will take place on 25th – 26th November 2017.”

With this announcement, Killington Resort can assure international race teams and ski racing fans traveling to central Vermont for Thanksgiving Weekend that both the Giant Slalom and Slalom races will take place as scheduled on November 25 and 26.

“With the FIS approval on race course snow preparation, we’re elated to welcome all the international ski teams to Killington next week. This approval is further evidence that Killington’s snowmaking system is renowned and our snow maintenance teams are the best in the business at doing their craft and getting the race hill ready,” commented Herwig Demschar, SVP international business development at POWDR and World Cup local organizing committee chairman. “Killington Resort, POWDR, and the town and community of Killington threw an amazing World Cup party last year. Seizing that momentum, this year’s event will be bigger and better and another epic party. With the return of elite ski racing to the East, a weekend full of live music, and many other events on the schedule, World Cup will be an occasion not to miss.”

Killington Resort opened to season pass and express card holders for skiing and snowboarding on November 8 followed by a public opening on November 9. With snowmaking now mostly concluded on Superstar trail, the World Cup race venue, Killington snowmakers have started snowmaking on Skyelark to add a training run for World Cup racers. The snowmaking team also continues to expand terrain for the public in the areas of Killington Peak and Snowdon while also beginning snowmaking on learning terrain at Snowshed.

A full schedule of events at Killington Resort during World Cup Weekend including race start times, entertainment, free concerts by Dispatch and Troy Ramey, plus information on many free parking and shuttle bus options is available at www.killington.com/worldcup.
