As the official media partner of StocExpo 2023, Tank Storage Magazine brings you a sneak preview into the fantastic new features happening at this year’s event:

Terminal Tour

For the first time at StocExpo, you have access to an exclusive Terminal Tour. On the morning of 14 March Koole Tankstorage Botlek (KTB) will be hosting a terminal tour at its current and future fuels terminal in the heart of the Port of Rotterdam.

KTB is one of the most advanced and complex terminals in Europe. As well as producing sustainable aviation fuel, it has four different multi-purpose distillation units as an add-on to the storage and handling services for edible oils, mineral oils, biofuels and bio feedstocks, waste products (and regeneration) and petrochemicals. KTB currently operates with an annual throughput capacity of almost 2 million tonnes, 600,000m2 of which is dedicated to biofuels storage.

Sustainability Trail

With multiple terminals looking for technology to help build tanks to store future fuels, we have created the Sustainability Trail. Companies offering solutions for ammonia, biofuels, hydrogen or other future fuels, or helping terminals to reach net zero emissions will be highlighted in a trail, in the show guide and on the StocExpo website.

Asset management conference

Brand new for 2023, we have launched a new conference track entirely dedicated to asset management and integrity. This will be free to attend and will be targeted at the HSE managers and asset managers who attend the show.

Topics covered include Lessons learnt from incidents, Sharing HSE best practices, Improving behavioural safety at the terminal, Preventing cyber attacks against critical infrastructure and Managing the transition to fluorine-free foams. The conference will be chaired by VDMA, who represent 3,500 German and European engineering companies.

Collaboration with FETSA

The Federation of European Tank Storage Associations (FETSA), and Tank Storage Magazine have formed a partnership to produce the 2023 FETSA Tank Storage Conference. At the event, the industry will come together to discuss the future of tank storage including the geopolitical, energy and digital transitions as well as resilience in the face of a changing world.

Pitch contest

As part of the iTanks Pitch lunch, there will be a unique opportunity for companies to pitch their brand and innovations to terminal professionals across the globe.

Robotics playground

New this year, StocExpo will have a designated area on the exhibition floor for robotics companies to showcase their latest technologies and innovations. In partnership with Sprint Robotics, this is your chance to get hands-on with the latest robotics technology in inspection, cleaning, efficiency, and maintenance.
