How safe is our tankfarm?

Operational Safety:

In our computer-aided control system all operational data (e.g. pressures, temperatures, levels, leak detections) are constantly indicated and exceedings of limits alerted. The facilities are inspected daily.

The Vohburg control center is operated round-the-clock. Hazards in the tank farm are rapidly detected and can be dealt with immediately.

Authority Permissions:

The construction, maintenance and control of all installations correspond to strict legal regulations by the BImSchG. On the basis of these regulations MERO Germany AG has the permission by the competent authorities to operate their tank farm. These authorities and their experts have to control the installations and the execution of the regulations independently.

On Balance:

All safety precautions are carried out as state-of-the-art. As far as anyone can judge, the MERO tank farm is operated in an absolutely safe manner.
