Your questions answered.

MSL work with Oil Tanking Malta with successful installation of mixers. Is there a standard for side entry mixers in the other parts of the group? How can we access this standard?

Yes we should have. Best is to contact the local team in Malta with this question.

For the maximize value current assets: are you considering how data can have a big role/contribution to the value of the current assets?

Yes we do. Sensors on tanks and pipelines for example can offer us valuable data which we can use for maintenance and repairs purposes.

Do you perform maintenance and repair of the tanks that you build? Or you prefer to subcontract these services?

We do both. We have our own M&R engineers and operators for day-to-day routines and easy repairs but also work with qualified sub-contractors.
