StocExpo 2023 doubles up with two-stream conference programme

StocExpo, the three-day tank storage and future fuels event organised in The Netherlands by Easyfairs, will for the first time host two simultaneous conference streams when it returns to the Rotterdam Ahoy, 14–16 March 2023.

On day one, the FETSA Tank Storage Conference will explore the impact of the Russia/ Ukraine war on supply routes, and how we can ensure our storage needs are met for the future.

Day one of the other stream, the Operations & Safety Conference, meanwhile, will feature sessions on improving behavioural safety at the terminal, lessons learnt from incidents, and challenges arising from Dutch explosion safety regulations.

Day two of the FETSA Tank Storage Conference will explore the energy transition for storage terminals, including from an Iberian perspective. There will also be sessions on how electrical RTO technology and vapour recovery units can help gas venting go green and become more cost effective, and assessing storage demands for future fuels.

The second day of the Terminal Operations & Safety conference stream will include an exploration of what level of sustainability mapping can realistically be achieved in the tank storage sector.

The third and final day of the FETSA Tank Storage conference stream will be made up of talks on preparing terminals against cyber threats and an in-depth look at digital transformation at Shell Energy & Chemical Park.

Rikki Bhachu, head of marketing at StocExpo, says: “Things are changing so fast in the tank storage and future fuels industry, we have decided to double up our conference with two streams of talks on some of the most pressing trends, challenges and opportunities. We have an exciting line-up of industry experts and thought leaders ready to share their knowledge and insights, and I would encourage anyone in the tank storage industry to sign up as a delegate and join us for what promises to be a truly enlightening and informative event."
