When storing hazardous substances, the reduction of leakage risk is of vital concern. As storage tank corrosion can cause environmental contamination and losses, it is important to ensure the safety and reliability of tanks in order to avoid disasters.

In light of a growing interest in storage tank inspection services, SGS is pleased to invite you to a free 60-minute webinar, entitled “Understanding Aboveground Storage Tank Inspection.”

SGS will offer this free, globally available webinar on storage tank inspection on March 26 and April 3, 2012, in order to inform participants about the significance of this type of inspection, responsibilities of the involved parties, techniques used to inspect tanks and inspection code requirements. Furthermore, SGS seeks to provide attendees with comprehensive information on typical defects noted during inspection, API 653, typical scope of work, and in-service inspection and non-destructive testing (NDT). With extensive experience and expertise in the field of storage tank inspection, SGS will also provide significant facts about post-repair inspection, as well as inspection techniques and equipment used.

Hosted by Sherman Nunis, Business Leader Tank Competence Center at SGS, the free 60-minute webinar will be available across Europe in two sessions to meet the needs of attendees.

Two webinar sessions are scheduled, twice on each of two days:

Monday, March 26, 2012:

9:00 a.m. Europe Summer Time (Amsterdam, GMT+02:00)
4:00 p.m. Europe Summer Time (Amsterdam, GMT+02:00)
