iTanks is an Industry body that connects companies, knowledge institutes and industry experts together and introduces these parties with new technology and the latest innovations from within the AST sector. There are currently in excess of 200,000 ASTs in use in the midstream and downstream Oil and Gas Industry in Europe. CorroLogic – Cortec’s highly professional, integrated system of solutions for ASTs is embraced by a growing number of Oil & Gas companies and is becoming a desired approach across the world due to Cortec’s unmatched professional service and expertise.

CortecCortec® and Presserv have developed competencies in both the commercial segment and application of Corrologic solutions and have a skilled technical team who understands this market sector.

Presserv’s Tank Brigade was fortunate enough to present CorroLogic® to over 200 tank terminal owners, operators and maintenance contractors from the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. The format was a 6 minute presentation followed by Q&A. Corrologic engineered solutions were very well received by the audience and the company has several tangible leads to follow up on in NW Europe.

The highlight was when VOPAK, one of the world’s largest tank terminal owners, invited Presserv to their innovation centre in March to present CorroLogic® to a wider audience and talk specifically about applying the CorroLogic® solution to tanks in the Netherlands.  The next big event for the Presserv Tank Brigade to promote the CorroLogic® engineered solution is StocExpo, Europe, a 3-day exhibition and conference dedicated to innovation and technology in the international AST sector.
