Innovation on Show at StocExpo Europe 2017
Jan 04, 2017

More than 200 organisations, including Honeywell, Emerson Automation Solutions, Verwater, Endress+Hauser, Siemens and Silverwing have already booked stands for StocExpo Europe 2017, with many confirming that they will be using the show to launch new products and services.

The world’s leading international event for the tank terminal industry, which returns to The Ahoy Rotterdam on 28-30 March 2017 will feature innovation spanning the entire supply spectrum – from pumps and valves, loading equipment and coatings through to roofing, tank cleaning and degassing.

Implico Group will be introducing its new handheld solution for railcar handling. By allowing staff at trackside to be directly connected to the terminal management and automation system – OpenTAS - workers can enter current loading data without detours or delays, speeding up the entire process.

Michael Martens, Managing Partner at Implico Group explains why the show’s an ideal launch-pad for the new product: “StocExpo Europe is more than just a trade fair for us. We’ve been exhibiting our software and cloud solutions for the optimization of terminal management processes at StocExpo for many years. We feel connected to the people and the industry. It’s always like coming home.”

Pascal Vande Velde, CEO & Founder at Avalon Automation, agrees: “We are attending StocExpo Europe 2017 because we simply can’t afford not to. It is the must-attend event for anyone playing a significant role in the liquid storage industry.”

Avalon Automation will be presenting the latest release of ALIAS, its configurable TAS solution which offers contracting, order management, scheduling, inventory control, order based loading, order to cash, conditional billing, KPI reporting, and more. It helps to drive down risk, avoid human errors, and structurally reduce operational costs.

After listening to its community of operators Arflu has designed a Dual Expanding Plug valve that eliminates the common problems that occur during operation. Being showcased at StocExpo Europe, the valve has a backseat, the stem packing is accessible from the outside and it can easily be changed even under pressure.

The Lightning Master stand will feature its movable arm grounding system – MAGS. This patented bypass conductor system for external floating roof tanks is simple, gravity-powered and reliable, having been through a simulated wind test in excess of 2,000,000 cycles without wear or failure.

Jennifer Evans, Director of Marketing at Lightning Master Corporation, comments: “We view StocExpo Europe as the world’s premier industrial exhibition focused on bulk storage of petrochemical material. Many of the industry’s best and brightest gather here to exchange new ideas and information.”

FSP-Tech produces tank safety showers for indoor and outdoor applications. It will be demonstrating how these showers, made from stainless steel, save costs and increase safety when compared to conventional safety showers.

Verwater will be displaying its full spectrum of industrial and tank-related maintenance and project services, such as jacking, civil works, piping and mechanical, turnarounds, protective coatings, E&I, panel building and engineering.

StocExpo Europe 2017 provides Jabitherm Rohrsysteme AG with the perfect platform to showcase its pre-insulated pipes which are ideally suited for those involved in the chemistry and oil/gas/LNG-transfer industries.

Nick Powell, StocExpo & Tank Storage Portfolio Event Director, concludes: “We have such a diverse level of innovation on show this year covering the whole tank storage supply chain. I think this year more than ever we have something for everyone. We are thrilled to have the major names on board, but we are also very pleased to have so many smaller, highly innovative first-time exhibitors signing up for the show. This mix means decision-makers at our show will not only meet all of their major potential suppliers under one roof, but they’ll have access to a supply base which they might otherwise, never have the time or opportunity to see.”
