EEMUA Annual Storage Tanks Seminar


Rowton Hall Hotel and Spa




 “Twenty Five Years of EEMUA 159”. For 25 years ‘EEMUA Publication 159: Above ground flat bottomed storage tanks - a guide to inspection, maintenance and repair’ has been accepted by operators and regulators worldwide as a picture of what ‘good practice’ looks like, acting as a bridge between standards in wide use, such as BS 2654, API 620 and API 650, DIN 4119-1 and -2, CODRES, G0801 and EN 14015. This seminar will look at the changes in build standards that have occurred over the life of the publication, how practice has changed, and what the future might hold for the industry.

This seminar is essential for operators who want to understand how EEMUA 159, and the development behind it, can help them run their facilities better now. It provides an opportunity to see where the industry will be in the future, and how EEMUA 159 should support it.


Attendance is free of charge for delegates from EEMUA member and associate companies. For members and associates registering on the website for the first time, please note that there is an additional validation step. In this case, we recommend registering for the event only after the ‘Welcome to EEMUA’ communication has been received. This will ensure that once logged in you will have free entry to the event.

Limited spaces are available to delegates from higher education establishments, i.e. staff and full time students, at a reduced rate. All delegates from higher education establishments will be required to provide us with confirmation of their status accordingly, e.g. copy of student ID card, personnel ID card, etc.
