Emergency Planning & Response.

Preparedness to deal with potential incidents at a site where hazardous goods are being stored is crucial to the survival of a tank farm. A whole range of dangers can pose a threat to storage terminals, including terrorism, lightning, fire, cybersecurity breaches, hurricanes, tank overflow or earthquakes, to name a few.

How the incident is dealt with can have massive repercussions on the employees’ safety, the company’s reputation and the terminal’s bottom line.

Next year’s StocExpo in Rotterdam will have a special focus to help ensure terminals are prepared for any potential disaster or emergency. The Emergency Planning & Response Zone will help HSE managers learn about emergency response planning, and find the latest the techniques designed to keep their terminal safe & secure.
