Cryogenic Storage Tanks

Update on standards and regulations

October 22, 2020

2 p.m. - 6:15 p.m. (CET)

Exchange with experts
Live Online Update

Liquefied gases are used in a wide range of applications in many industrial sectors. The increasing demand for refrigerated liquefied gases requires the use of suitable storage facilities. Compliance with various technical and legal requirements during design, construction and operation of such facilities is necessary for safe operation of cryogenic storage tanks.

Many working groups are currently working to establish rules and standards on how a cryogenic storage tank can be designed, manufactured and operated.

We would like to give you an update on the current status of these working groups. Take part on our online event and keep yourself informed!

Review 2018

For the second time, experts in the field of cryogenic storage tanks came together at TÜV SÜD in Munich. 115 participants from 17 nations took part in the conference to be informed of the latest insights on using cryogenic storage tanks.

Not only the growing need for storage possibilities for liquefied gases but also the safe preservation of existing installations induced TÜV SÜD to arrange this conference series.

After a one-day pilot in 2016, this year’s conference featured the following topics over a period of 2 days:
•What are the international laws and standards regarding set-up and Operation?
•How are risks evaluated?
•How can site-specific conditions such as earthquake effetcs be determined?
•How can inspection intervals be determined according to a risk assessment?
•Which damaging events have to be considered for the storage, i.e. of ammoniac?

The lively and intensive debate in the course of the conference showed the importance of current and future exchange on the various aspects in the use of cryogenic storage tanks.

Together with the program committee, TÜV SÜD is very pleased with the outcome of this successful conference!


Here you will find further information on the technical requirements.

To participate in a live online conference you need a desktop PC or laptop. Headphones are an advantage. A camera is optional.

Since a live online conference is played out on a browser-based microsite, no download of special software or applications is necessary in advance. A stable Internet connection is advantageous.

However, a full display and functionality of the microsite is guaranteed with the current Chrome browser.
For small group work or workshops the application Microsoft Teams is used at some conferences. You can find out in advance from the respective organization team whether this is the case at your conference.
