International challenges and possibilities

Gordon Cope, Contributing Editor, examines the obstacles faced by the energy sector across Europe and the Middle East, and the opportunities available to the tanks and terminals market moving forwards.

The digital decision

Tim Hoffmeister, Implico Group, Germany, outlines the central role of the smart tank terminal within the ongoing energy transition, highlighting its ability to reduce emissions, handle alternate products and react to new developments.

Storage during transition

Danny Constantinis, EM&I Group, Malta, explains why robotic and digital technologies will play an important role in supporting storage facilities for cryogenic products.

The future of tank inspection

Stuart Kenny, Eddyfi Technologies, UK, discusses the role of remotely accessed robotics in the management of tank and terminal asset integrity.

The robotic revolution

Fintan Duffy, Re-Gen Robotics, Northern Ireland, outlines the benefits of robotic tank cleaning solutions through the real-life example of an operation at a refinery in the UK.

Accelerating action

Gurjeet Bansal, IntelliView Technologies Inc., Canada, highlights how automating remote monitoring with AI cameras can cut time, effort and costs, whilst improving safety and reducing environmental impact.

Bolstering fire safety

Edward Cass, Paratherm, USA, explains how the risk of fire in thermal fluid systems can be minimised.

The power of insulation

Mackenzie Michalski and Allen Dickey, Owens Corning, USA, present three goals for storage vessel insulation design.

Saving money, saving lives

Tony Collins, EonCoat LLC, USA, discusses how a considered choice of tank coating could help to improve workers’ health, as well as limit negative environmental impacts.
