Event Details

EEMUA plays an important role in meeting the challenge of keeping storage tanks operating safely, efficiently and cost effectively. Complying with guidance, such as EEMUA 159, a globally accepted user guide for inspecting and maintaining cylindrical, above ground, steel storage tanks, is vital to the safe and long-term operation of storage tanks. 

Our annual tank storage seminar will examine various aspects of above ground storage tank management and the upcoming sixth edition of EEMUA 159, built on the work of the previous editions and which provides additional material to reflect the advances in understanding of operational information. 

Attendance is free of charge for delegates from EEMUA member and associate companies. For members and associates 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.

Discounted spaces for Higher Education staff and students

Discounted spaces are available to delegates from higher education establishments, i.e. staff and full time students. Delegates from higher education establishments will be required to provide proof of their status accordingly, e.g. copy of student ID card, personnel ID card, etc.
