By Richard Hepworth, President of Trelleborg’s marine systems operation
Trelleborg’s marine systems operation will showcase its Universal Safety Link (USL) technology at The 8th Motorship Gas Fuelled Ships Conference (13 – 15 November) onboard the Viking Mariella in Helsinki.
The conference offers a technical perspective on the innovation and investment driving the uptake of LNG, methanol and other low-flashpoint fuels in the commercial shipping sector. With a focus on knowledge sharing from a variety of projects, the conference examines the latest advances in vessel design and operation, propulsion, supply infrastructure and associated technology.
At the conference, Steve Ward, Technical Sales Manager of Trelleborg’s marine systems operation UK, will also take to the stage to provide an overview of the developments in Emergency Shutdown (ESD) and Ship-Shore Link (SSL) System technology over the last decade. He will discuss the need for standardisation and compatibility across markets.
The conference provides the ideal platform for us to connect with ship owners and operators, LNG carriers, shipbuilders, as well as port and terminal owners and operators in the region to discuss the importance of specifying compatible and proven technology and its role in ensuring the safe, efficient transportation and transfer of LNG as a fuel.
