Here at Trelleborg, we have a longstanding association with PIANC. Not only do we have a number of people involved in technical working groups, but we’ve also participated in and sponsored a number of world congress events. After being the Platinum AGA sponsor of the 33rd PIANC World Congress at the beginning of June, I am delighted to reveal that we have cemented our commitment to best practice by becoming a PIANC Platinum Partner. As a manufacturer of mission critical port equipment, its essential to us to share knowledge with the industry body that guides standards across the board.
With PIANC continuing to set best practice guidance for so many, and varied, issues pertinent to waterborne transport infrastructure, they felt it was important to have a supplier on board that could contribute across such a broad spectrum.
With our expertise extending from shore-based infrastructure, to oil and gas and LNG; we’re well placed to contribute to a number of areas PIANC work within.
This year’s Congress resolution, set forth by PIANC, will investigate ongoing and emerging trends, technologies and business models. With that said, we here at Trelleborg look forward to being involved in contributing to this important discussion going forward.
