NEW this year, StocExpo Europe will be hosting workshops throughout the three days including; EEMUA workshop, Storage Innovation Showcase and Engineers of the future.


The importance of inspection, validation and maintenance throughout the life cycle of a tank varies through its storage of product and how the tank itself is maintained. This EEMUA workshop comprises five sessions detailing procedures and techniques of maintaining tanks as assets throughout their life to ensure safe storage of product and efficiency of operation strategies within a tank storage environment. The workshop ends with an open discussion to determine what users and operators in the tank world would like to see. The sessions are open to all those attending StocExpo on the day. Be sure you arrive in good time for each session to secure a seat!
