StocExpo 2015 brought together the world’s tank terminal industry for three days of networking, business and knowledge sharing.

The event’s three-day conference welcomed over 170 delegates and 30 speakers from key ports, terminals and financial institutions. BP, Wood Mackenzie and Oil Tanking North America were among those who discussed a plethora of subjects, from global fuel market developments and tank corrosion to financial trends and supply chain integration.

New products and services

StocExpo 2015 attracted exhibitors from right across the supply chain. Emco Wheaton launched its TODO Break-Away range, Protego introduced its PM-HF pilot-controlled pressure and vacuum relief valve, whilst Hempel unveiled its HEMPADUR AvantGuard, a portfolio of three new anti-corrosive zinc primers.

“I’ve seen products that could be really beneficial to me and potentially save my organisation some money,” said Mikko Hietanen, financial director at Baltic Tank .said It has been a perfect opportunity to make some very useful contacts. Overall it has been a great show.”

The show ‘opened up numerous potential opportunities’ for Hazchem Safety said sales coordinator Paul Latimer.

At Newson Gale international sales manager Rachel Stevenson reported: “We have had some really interesting visits from leading industry decision makers, we’ve received two quote requests already plus we have seen particular interest in our road tanker recognition earthing system.

“We were thrilled to welcome even more exhibitors to this year’s event and also play host to FETSA’s annual meeting, welcoming the heads of all the key European Tank Storage Associations said Nick Powell, StocExpo & Tank Storage portfolio event director.
