After receiving the Tank Storage Award for the ‘Best Terminal Supplier’ last year, Implico will return to StocExpo Europe 2019 to introduce its newest software solutions, data services and cloud technologies for storage and distribution networks, all of which boost automation and digital transformation in the downstream oil and gas industry. The oil and gas specialist will present the latest stage in the evolution of its OpenTAS terminal management system, demonstrate the SAP downstream solutions SAP Secondary Distribution Management for Oil & Gas and SAP Retail Fuel Network Operations, and showcase devices that help storage terminals to go digital without the need to replace their complete IT landscape.
Lucas Ribeiro, Sales Representative & Downstream IT Expert at Implico, explains: “StocExpo is the place to be for the tank storage sector. Implico will attend the conference for the 14th time in a row this year, promoting digital transformation with the motto ‘Start your digital journey’. As everyone from oil majors to start-ups will be there, we are looking forward to a vivid exchange with partners, peers and other inspiring people. We are eager to discuss the latest trends, meet the who is who of the terminal industry and, of course, present our newest software solutions and data services. If you want to know what keeps the industry on its toes you have to join StocExpo.”
Agidens will launch its patented (pending) ATALK safety technology, a new automated safety solution that allows an automated flow of critical alarm notifications immediately to the relevant people at the tank terminal or chemical plant thus improving reaction time and, in turn, reduce on-site risk and cost. Arnoud den Hoedt, Divisional Manager Oil & Gas at Agidens Process Automation, says: “StocExpo is the ideal location to launch this new innovation since it has been specifically designed for ATEX zones in tank terminals and in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries.”
Federico LaMontagne, CEO at Innova, agrees: “As the largest exhibition of its kind, StocExpo is the exhibition where we see the most of our existing and potential customers”. The provider of tank storage equipment will use the show as a platform to showcase a new emergency vent, new models within the company’s modular design breather valves range, plus further developments in the Tornado range of flame arresters.
Automated oil tank cleaning and oil recovery specialist, Oreco, is also planning to introduce a new Roof Leg Nozzle to improve tank cleaning, as well as exhibiting the BLABOÒ, MoCleanÒ, MoClean®-ATS and SLOPO® at the show. These solutions can be used in a range of petroleum and petrochemical product applications, including on crude oil tanks.
In addition to the growing number of launches due to take place at the show, StocExpo will also provide a platform for companies to demonstrate their already market-leading products and services. DUMAG GmbH will demonstrate its tailor-made burner solutions, modular combustion systems and combination processes for the treatment of exhaust air, waste gas and waste streams. Mueller will be exhibiting its range of fire hydrants, butterfly valves and iron gate valves, while Siemens will be demonstrating how customers can optimise the performance of critical oil and gas assets and equipment through its extensive software portfolio, including Tank Storage 4.0. These represent just a snapshot of the companies that will be accessible to all visitors on the show floor.
Mark Rimmer, StocExpo & Tank Storage Portfolio Divisional Director, concludes: “StocExpo Europe is the place where over 200 of the leading companies from along the whole tank storage supply chain come to showcase their latest developments – and this year is no exception. In addition to the major players in the industry, the show also provides visitors with the opportunity to meet with highly innovative smaller companies that have signed up to showcase a diverse range of products on the show floor. It’s an opportunity to see a supply base that visitors may otherwise not have the opportunity to see.”
