StocExpo unveils new emergency planning and response zone for 2021 event

Tanks and Terminals,
StocExpo has announced a new feature for its 2021 bulk liquid storage event which will take place in Antwerp, Belgium. The emergency planning and response zone (EPR) will aim to help ensure that terminals are prepared for potential disasters or emergencies.
Potential dangers which could pose a threat to storage terminals include terrorism, lightning, fire, cybersecurity breaches, hurricanes, tank overflow and earthquakes, to name a few. Preparedness to deal with potential incidents at a site where hazardous goods are being stored is crucial to the survival of a tank farm.
How an incident is dealt with can have serious repercussions for employees’ safety, the company’s reputation and the terminal’s bottom line.
Rikki Bhachu, Senior Marketing Manager at StocExpo, said: “We have launched this new area of the show as we felt there was a need to focus on the planning for disasters in the bulk liquid storage industry.
“The emergency planning and response zone will help HSE [health, safety and environment] managers learn about emergency response planning and find the latest techniques designed to keep their terminal safe and secure. It is something StocExpo wants to focus on for 2021, and we are looking forward to having a dedicated exhibitor zone, as well as conference topics based on EPR to help the industry”.
