EEMUA Storage Tanks Seminar


Antwerp, Belgium




Seminar Registration Now Closed!

This event will examine the issues of operating types of tanks that are not the traditional cylindrical above ground steel tanks.


EEMUA 159 is a globally accepted user guide for inspecting and maintaining cylindrical, above ground, steel storage tanks.  However there are many other types of tank that do not fit this description e.g. tanks on stilts, buried tanks, mounded tanks, plastic tanks etc. This seminar will consider the issues of operating these different tanks and how the current EEMUA publications can help in their inspection and maintenance. It will also investigate what alternatives exist that could help operators of these tanks.

Attendance is free of charge for delegates from EEMUA member companies. For member company users 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.
