EEMUA events

EEMUA events are a great way to gain knowledge and hear first-hand about lessons learned with industrial plant.

The annual programme of EEMUA seminars in the UK and continental Europe regularly attracts delegates from across the engineering community. With the underlying theme of safe and effective industrial asset management, the objective is to provide insights into current topics of interest. The seminars also provide the chance to network with others who face similar challenges in optimising plant safety, quality, cost and performance.

Have an idea for a presentation? Why not submit a proposal to speak at an EEMUA event?

Most speakers and their companies recognise the importance of being part of EEMUA events and embrace a philanthropic spirit in releasing staff for the day of the event. EEMUA events provide speakers the opportunity to demonstrate their expertise, knowledge and experience, as well as to network with constituents for technical networking.

Below are summaries of some of EEMUA’s recent events: 

High Temperature Hydrogen Attack (HTHA) Seminar 2019



Attendees heard from the UK Regulator, European and US operators, leading NDT houses, materials research specialists & academics and other who provided insight on the most recent work in the field. The seminar focussed on how to best manage the risk in maintaining the integrity of physical assets under hydrogen service at elevated temperatures.

Cyber Security Seminar 2019


Where business systems meet process control systems; the cybersecurity weak spot.

In order to get the most benefit from their process control systems, organisations are increasingly integrating them with their business control systems, including stock tracking software. This represents a potential means of ingress, and a tempting target, for hackers and cyber saboteurs.

This seminar asked “how did we reach this situation, how worrying is the issue, and what are the remedies?”

EEMUA Conference 2019



EEMUA’s biennial Conference allows members to address the practical engineering problems that arise during the operating life of industrial assets. It provides the platform for users to share insight into current issues for site operations, and develop more effective, industry-wide strategies to improve process safety, asset integrity and performance. The 2019 event was held at the Bolton Whites Hotel, in Bolton, Greater Manchester and focussed on the topical theme of "Leadership, Asset Integrity and Engagement: Addressing the gap in the middle".

The conference had an inspired mix of plenary sessions, panel discussions and interactive workshops and an impressive line-up of speakers including industry experts from HSE, Axiom and Essar Oil UK.

EEMUA Webinar: Drones - the future of routine inspections?


Online, 10:00 - 11:00 GMT

Are drones becoming the obvious choice for routine internal and external inspections of plant equipment, storage tanks and process systems? Listen in and make your mind up.


EEMUA Corrosion Detection and Control Seminar


near Chester

Detecting corrosion of equipment is vital to maintain mechanical integrity and structural resilience, depending on conditions and type the corrosion rate can accelerate, putting personnel, assets and the environment at risk. This seminar will look at practical ways of detecting, and assessing corrosion, controlling corrosion at different stages in the asset’s life, effectiveness of some mitigations in extending asset life, reducing risk, and controlling whole life costs.


EEMUA Supporter at StocExpo 2020

10/03/2020 - 12/03/2020

Ahoy Rotterdam, Netherlands

For the third year running, EEMUA is supporting StocExpo Europe 2020, an international bulk liquid storage event. It promises to have some exciting and informative presentations plus lots of networking opportunities.


EEMUA Ageing Electrical Equipment Seminar


near London

When well looked after, electrical equipment can last for a very long time – but the point is that it does need looking after.  Change-outs need to be demonstrably cost-effective and feasible. Consequently equipment may be run far beyond its design life – if such a concept even existed when it was made – and looking after it assumes even greater importance. In this seminar we will focus on how best to do that – what to expect and what not to expect.


EEMUA Mechanical Connectors Seminar


near Edinburgh

Interconnectors for large diameter steel pipework are key components in the hydrocarbon delivery infrastructure that are poorly served by standards, and industry guidance. This seminar will present recent work done in the field by an EEMUA working group, as well as issues that must be considered.


EEMUA Cyber Security Seminar


near Nottingham

Cyber security has climbed its way up the register of importance, and is no longer overlooked. Adequate guarding against malicious attack is a legal requirement for industrial site operators. This seminar will examine what constitutes “adequate”, as well as existing good practice in the field of industrial cyber security.


EEMUA Pressure Systems Seminar


near Cardiff

With the capacity for catastrophic damage, pressure equipment is a tightly controlled area within the field of industrial safety, requiring vigilance to keep abreast of the latest developments in order to maintain their competence. This seminar will look at some of the latest areas of work within EEMUA, including assessing over-pressure, and establishing safe, effective test regimes.


EEMUA Inspection Seminar


near Rotterdam

EEMUA’s annual inspection seminar returns to showcase the latest in technology to help ensure the most effective way of ensuring safe operation of equipment.


EEMUA Online Analysers Seminar


near Sheffield

Online analysers are one of the petrochemical industry’s most vital yet least understood pieces of equipment. This seminar will present some of the latest work in the field relating to online analysers.


EEMUA Storage Tanks Seminar


near Birmingham

What is good practice in tank inspection, maintenance and operation when it isn’t covered under EEMUA 159? This seminar will look at tank storage outside of above ground steel cylindrical tanks, including recent work on double skinned tanks being conducted by EEMUA.
