By Richard Hepworth, President of Trelleborg’s marine operation
With PIANC continuing to set best practice guidance for so many, and varied, issues pertinent to waterborne transport infrastructure, we felt that it was only natural to further strengthen our longstanding association.
As such, we will host an exclusive one-day seminar in partnership with PIANC for port consultants. Held on 30th October at the Atlantic Imbizo Conference and Function Studio in Cape Town, South Africa, the free to attend seminar provides us with the ideal opportunity to develop a better understanding of the needs of consultants, so we can evolve our offering to meet them.
The seminar will see Trelleborg experts discuss a range of key industry issues, including the importance of rubber compound composition in the whole-life performance of fender systems and how consultants can determine the formulation of the fenders they procure. This will see our technical expert, Mishra Kumar, discuss mixing and compound modulus as an effective and robust measure of fender performance. The seminar will also provide valuable insight on rubber and foam marine fender design and selection best practice, as well as the latest docking and mooring innovations to improve efficiency and optimize performance.
