EEMUA Storage Tanks Seminar


Van der Valk Hotel Ridderkerk, near Rotterdam, Netherlands




Registration for this event is now closed.

Making the world of tanks safer through inspection, validation and maintenance techniques.


The latest in EEMUA’s annual seminars will examine current issues in the field of storage tanks, and will look at the new edition of EEMUA 159 guidance.

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 seminar will review procedures and techniques for maintaining these assets throughout their life, the validation and impact of recent developments in technology on inspection and safe storage of product, and the efficiency of operation strategies within a tank storage environment.

Take advantage of the non-member early bird rate, available until 29th September 2017. A standard rate of £300 will apply to all non-member registrations made after the deadline.

Exhibitor Opportunities

If you are a business looking to connect with owners and operators of storage tanks, then why not exhibit at the event? There are a number of 3m x 2m space exhibition stands with a table and 2 chairs available. Delegates will be able to visit the stands at registration, refreshment breaks, lunch and after the event.
