Stocexpo brought together experts from companies including Shell, Vopak, Alkion Terminals, VARNO Energy, Exolum, Odfjell, Evos, Navigator Terminals, VTTI and many others.
Thousands of professionals came from over 100 countries from across the globe.
Lourda Derry, COO at Easyfairs, hosts of StocExpo, said: “It’s wonderful to be back in-person. The sector is going through an important transition and it’s crucial that we are able to share ideas and tackle these issues together.
“I’m personally happy to have seen everyone and StocExpo has, once again, enabled discussion, networking and new business in the global tank storage industry.”
Sachin Mohanani, terminal operations analyst at Shell and a delegate at the event, said: “You get a lot more out of it in person, particularly when it comes to networking. There’s been lots of topical information about energy transition and security and it’s been really valuable to be here and get insights from our energy partners directly.”
Andrejs Višņausks, board member at Saber Evnat (Latvia), agreed: “This whole time, the sector wasn’t idling—the manufacturers were adjusting their development strategies, at times drastically revising them.
“A plethora of political decisions were made at the EU level, impacting the industry in one way or another. Now is the time of real turbulence due to geopolitical shocks. It has been extremely interesting and useful to learn and understand which roadmaps underpin the development of certain businesses that are indeed the industry’s driving force, and also to feel the rhythm of the sector at large.”
The company’s stand at the expo featured its own technical solution for jet mixing of liquids. When employed for bulk liquid storage tanks, EVNAT technology eliminates sedimentation, which significantly boosts efficiency during production, transhipment, and storage.
