We have been supporting bp and Briggs Marine for nearly nine years and to continue our ongoing training programme for their UK bulk storage terminals, our Jodi Annette visits the Buncefield terminal at Hemel Hempstead to deliver our industry approved joint integrity training.

Often overlooked (in terms of mechanical joint integrity) bulk storage terminals are equally as important as an oil refinery or chemical plant – and if you don’t agree with that, cast your mind back to December 11th 2005 and the major fire at the oil storage facility at Buncefield. That incident proved to our industry that when things go wrong (for whatever reason) the resulting effects can be catastrophic and devastating not just to the storage facility but also to the outside community.
