EEMUA 159 CompeTank®

EEMUA 159 CompeTank® is the official EEMUA training, assessment and certification scheme for tank integrity assessors, engineers, managers and others responsible for process safety and for the safe operation and maintenance of in-service storage tanks for bulk fluids. CompeTank® courses are based on EEMUA Publication 159 (Edition 5) and other internationally recognised user guides developed by EEMUA, as well as other industry publications, regulations and formal standards. Three courses are currently offered within the scheme. Permanent employees of EEMUA member companies are entitled to a 20% discount off all standard course fees. Training documentation, examination fees and certificates, plus residential accommodation with full board are included in the (ex-VAT) prices shown below.

EEMUA 159 TankIntro is a training-only course providing an introduction to industrial-scale storage tanks. It gives attendees a basic understanding of the different tank designs, and how tanks should be inspected, assessed, operated, maintained and repaired, without going into the detailed calculations. Download overviews in English or Dutch.

EEMUA 159 TankInspector is a training and competency course that will enable attendees to gain an understanding about the inspection requirements during various stages of the tank service life – construction, operation, repair / maintenance and demolition. It covers key principles, output and limitations of inspection methods and techniques, together with the relation between all major damage mechanism and different tank components.

EEMUA 159 TankAssessor is a training and competency course that covers key features of tank design and the common problems that arise in service. It also identifies what actions may be taken to avoid their recurrence or to remedy the effects.

EEMUA 159 TankInspector does not provide the competence required for fitness for service assessment, for which a valid EEMUA 159 TankAssessor certificate is required. The differences between TankInspector and TankAssessor are explained here.

The 5th Edition of EEMUA Publication 159: Above ground flat bottomed storage tanks - a guide to inspection, maintenance and repair, was realeased on 13th September 2017. 

In the EEMUA 159 CompeTank® public database you will find the contact details of people who have a current, valid, EEMUA TankAssessor™ Certificate of Competence. 

EEMUA 159 is also the foundation for EEMUA's storage tank e-learning in Dutch and English.
