The award winners will be chosen by a panel of impartial judges from across the sector and will be announced during a lavish gala dinner & ceremony to be held at the Floating Pavilion in Rotterdam on 29 March.
"We’ve been really impressed with the quality of the entries submitted for this year’s Tank Storage Awards. The shortlist will be presented to the judging panel on Monday and they’re going to have a tough decision ahead of them! We can’t wait for the winners to be revealed on the 29th of March, preparations are well underway and the event is almost sold out – it’s going to be a great night!" said Margaret Dunn, the event coordinator of the awards.
Loadtec Engineered Systems recently celebrated 20 years in the business. It is timely that its Managing Director, Alec Keeler, has been nominated for the Individual Achievement Award after leading the company through a period of continual growth and expansion in the last few years which saw the formation of its service arm, Loadtec Service, and also in the acquisition of specialised skid manufacturer and service company In Control Projects. This has led to Loadtec having one of the widest portfolio of products and services for bulk fluid transfer systems and safety access equipment in the industry today.
"Being nominated for Best Technology Provider award is quite a humbling experience. Especially as this is a new and major event in the O&G terminal calendar." Mr Keeler responded when told about the nominations. "Loadtec has 259 years of niche engineering in-house and we have handled pretty much every transportable liquid there is in the last 20 years. We aim for excellence and that is a never-ending journey. Also we have fine and strong competitors keeping us sharp. Strong competition is healthy for the market and the people in it."
