In 1997, S.E.S.T. was certified by the ABS (American Bureau of Shipping), as a company specialised in condition monitoring and became a member of the COGEN Portugal, the Portuguese Association for Cogeneration of energy.
In 1998, the company starts to develop products for diagnosis of Diesel engines assembling a portable laboratory for fuel analysis, called Fuel Lab.
On this year, products as Trident Diesel Engine Analyser”, “Trident Diesel Software” and “Trident Fixed Monitoring System” reached the final stage of development.
On 12th June 2001, the members of S.E.S.T. changed their corporate name to TecnoVeritas – Engineering Services and Technological Systems, due to this new name being identified with the type of services provided by the company.
In October 2002, TecnoVeritas’ facilities were transferred to the Mafra Business Center.
In 2005, it’s initiated the TecnoCat project, a catalyst to reduce the concentration of NOx gases.
In 2006, the Liner Guardian, a system to monitor and detect wear between the piston and reciprocal machines shirts, is also initiated.
In November 2006, TecnoVeritas starts the HISMAR project co-financed by the European Commission, by the programme framework six. This project consisted on developing a multifunctional robotics platform, allowing to perform specific inspections or maintenance work.
In 2007, the first industrial system TecnoCat was installed at the ENVIROIL, in Torres Novas.
In 2008, TecnoVeritas held the first conversion in Portugal, at the cogeneration plant in Estarreja.
In September 2008, was granted the national invention patent “Detection and monitoring system of adhesive wear between pistons and shirts of reciprocal machines”, in the name of TecnoVeritas, resulting in an international patent report of the Liner Guardian, attesting the invention as well as your international industrial applicability.
In January 2009, TecnoCat was successfully tested on the TecnoVeritas lab engine, demonstrating efficiencies exceeding 50%.
Also on this month, TecnoVeritas finished the development of a laboratory with an engine turned to operate with hydrogen and vegetable oil to be installed at NaREC, a research and development platform for new and sustainable renewable energy technologies in the UK.
On this same year, it is implemented on board of a Singapore Ship the first VEEO.
In 2010, the company helded the assembling of a prototype for the NOx emissions control on large Diesel Engines, the name of the prototype was Enermulsion.
By the end of 2010, it was created the “TecnoVeritas, Asia Pacific”, in Singapore.
In January 2011, Enermulsion was successfully implemented on Cogeneration Central, near Viana do Castelo, Portugal.

In January 2015, TecnoVeritas went to Antartida to measure Torque power of the M/V Expedition.
In 2016, BOEM-S was selected by Rebonave to be installed on it’s fleet due to the wide application it allows, enabling the start of information digitisation plan that the company was aiming to develop.
