By Richard Hepworth, President, Trelleborg’s marine systems operation
On 25th of February, Trelleborg’s marine systems operation hosted a technical seminar for the Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Training Council’s Department of Construction at our factory in Singapore.
Attended by lecturers from the largest vocational and professional education and training provider in Hong Kong, the seminar saw experts at Trelleborg discuss the latest in integrated berthing and mooring systems for ports and terminals, as well as the life cycle and design parameters of marine fenders.
Following the seminar, attendees were given a full factory tour which included the facility’s rubber lab. This provided visitors with the opportunity to see the latest developments in rubber technology first hand and the impact these technical advances have on performance and lifecycle.
It was great to see the enthusiasm of the group and we are delighted that such an esteemed educational institution is to incorporate key insights from the seminar in its training curriculum to equip civil engineering and construction students with integrated berthing and mooring systems best practice knowledge.
This is testament to Trelleborg’s unrivalled reputation and industry expertise. It was a pleasure to host the visit, and we very much look forward to the next one.
