A Belfast technology company is exploiting business opportunities in Europe, winning business in Germany and France.

i-Track Networks, which makes a wireless gauge to monitor heating oil and other liquid is based at the Innovation Centre at the Northern Ireland Science Park in the Titanic Quarter.

The firm has broken the French market and has teamed up with a major European manufacturer to develop further in Europe.

i-Track Networks also has a trading agreement with Clarehill Plastics in Moira, manufacturer of Harlequin tanks, for gauges.

Les Curran, managing director the firm, said that the device provides the most accurate monitoring of oil data available on the market.

He said: "The wireless monitoring gauge can turn an oil tank into a radically new intelligent tank which helps in saving money and reducing energy consumption through software that analyses both oil usage and spend per day/week/month and year.

"A unique feature is a remote alarm system which alerts the householder in the event of an unexpected fuel loss or theft. The alarm feature is also a useful means of being alerted when oil in the tank is about to run out."

The company was formed in September 2011 with assistance from Invest NI to help bring the new technology to market faster. Advice and guidance of European market opportunities was provided through Invest NI.
