Prepare for change at StocExpo

This year’s StocExpo conference programme takes a unique look into what a terminal will look like in the future. With keynote presentations from the European Commission, market-leading energy producer Engie and the world’s largest terminal operator Vopak, Day One of StocExpo will look at how terminals need to adapt to a decarbonised energy sector. Topics will include the future role of hydrogen; developments in the LNG sector; How terminals can produce more renewable energy; the EU’s energy policy and the demand for power storage.

Day two will take a closer look at innovation in the storage sector, with a focus on digital transformation in tank storage. Also joining the conference is Martin van den Bosch from Netherlands Seaport Police, helping terminals to tackle the growing problem of storage spoofing.
