Just returning from StocExpo 2014, we are still a bit in recovery from three days packed with many, many interesting discussions with customers, suppliers, and technology partners, plus a lot of learning about the many highlights and innovations that will be changing the tank storage landscape. But we are really glad we were there, taking home not just new insights and inspiration, but some sales leads, too. Would not have missed out on StocExpo in Rotterdam whatsoever: the Sieme ...

Tank-Storage-Industry-Safety

Raising safety and performance levels in the tank storage industry

In fact, the topic of safety has gained significant momentum, with new and stricter regulations such as the update to EEMUA 159 or the PGS 29 review. StocExpo 2014 in Rotterdam has dedicated an entire day in their 3-day conference schedule to safety in tankfarms and terminals. But what is the right answer to the question of how to ensure both process safety and opt ...
