Services

Our specialists are happy to assist you. We use our deep and extensive knowledge of standards and guidelines to provide you with creative advice. Do you need help with research into tank calamities, analyses of the technical condition, advice in the field of maintenance, rebuilding and new construction of storage tanks, and of course all engineering work for storage tanks, high-voltage pylons and stations, and other steel structures? Or do you want to know more about what we can do for you?

Come and join the Dutch course on 12 May 2020: What is new in EN1405:2018?

Tanks and pressure vessels

Are you the owner, inspector, operator or maintenance manager of a refinery, tank installation or tank depot and do you need our specific or specialist knowledge? Do you have an emergency and need immediate help? Even then we are always available to provide you with advice.
