TRELLEBORG TO EXHIBIT AT PREVENTION FIRST 2016

By Richard Hepworth, President of Trelleborg’s marine systems operation

Trelleborg’s marine systems operation will be exhibiting at “Prevention First: An Onshore and Offshore Pollution Prevention Symposium & Technology Exhibition” in Long Beach, California on the 27 and 28 September 2016.

The Prevention First exhibition is organized by the California State Lands Commission (CSLC), which sets the requirements for marine jetties throughout California.

Representatives from Trelleborg will be on hand to discuss the company’s portfolio of docking, mooring and fender system solutions, as well as our new offering for customers in North America. This comprises extended warranties on all fender systems in North America, financially backed by warranty bonds for up to five years, assuring quality and performance.

Trelleborg offers a complete range of fendering, docking and mooring solutions, as well as technical, operational and maintenance support.

With that in mind, at Prevention First we’re keen to discuss how we’re taking a smarter approach to port and terminal equipment optimization to ensure port owners, operators, contractors and consultants are able to not only meet the many challenges facing American shipping, but capitalize on the growing opportunities in the region.”

Trelleborg’s new extended warranties are dependent on the customer following the company’s best practice specification, which includes the requirement for materials and performance testing, and a schedule for inspections and maintenance through the life of the product.

TRELLEBORG TO EXHIBIT AT THE 2016 ACPA CONFERENCE

By Richard Hepworth, President of Trelleborg’s marine systems operation

Trelleborg’s marine systems operation will exhibit at the 58th Association of Canadian Port Authorities (ACPA) Annual Conference in Ontario, Canada on the 6 to 9 September 2016.

Representatives from Trelleborg will be on hand to discuss how its portfolio of mission critical components such as docking, mooring and fender system solutions, as well as IALA compliant modular navigation and mooring buoys, protect port infrastructure over a long and demanding service life, and how to minimize maintenance requirements, maximize efficiencies and improve safety.

It is vital that such mission critical equipment has minimal failure rates and maintenance schedules are optimized. However, to guarantee this, this important equipment needs to be specified correctly and manufactured using the right materials.

After manufacture, they must be subjected to rigorous materials and full-scale testing. And, to ensure they consistently meet working demands and environmental conditions over their lifetime, they need to be maintained correctly and frequently.

At the ACPA Conference, we’re keen to discuss the importance of best practice at every stage of a product’s lifecycle, from manufacture, through to testing and in-life support. We’re keen to hear from stakeholders across the industry what their experiences have been and see if we can better support them.

Founded in 1958, the ACPA serves as a national organizational body for ports and marine interests, including all Canadian port authorities, government entities, and companies doing business in the marine sector.
