Oil Plume Size of Manhattan Threatens Gulf; TIE Technologies Ramps Up for OilDam(TM) Installation


    Monday, Aug 23, 2010

    TIE Technologies, Inc. (Pink Sheets:TTCS), who operates a portfolio of
    Homeland Security assets focused on environmental disaster remediation and
    security driven by proprietary smart logistics, telemetrics and advanced IT
    solutions, announced today that it has completed engineering and is prepared
    to immediately implement its plan to roll out a multi part oil protection
    system, including the OilDam(TM), to protect both low energy water flow
    coastlines and higher energy areas.

    According to an article appearing in the Wall Street Journal Friday August
    20th, “Oil from the Deepwater Horizon spill formed an underwater plume of
    hydrocarbons the size of Manhattan, scientists said Thursday, raising fears
    of a lingering cloud of trace chemicals in the Gulf with an unknown
    long-term impact.”

    “Scientists believe that up to 79% of the spill, tens of millions of gallons
    of crude oil, still remain in the Gulf. Only full height seafloor-to-water
    surface solutions like OilDam (TM) can guard from the eventuality of tar
    balls rolling into marshes and up on the shore,”
    Edward Andercheck, Chairman and CEO of TIE Technologies stated. “We are
    planning to deliver and install the first sections of our solution to
    protect Weeks Bay, Alabama within the next two weeks, with other threatened
    locations to follow.”
