The International Harbour Masters Association (IHMA) will hold its 11th Congress from 25 – 28 June 2018 in London. Attracting port authorities and international maritime experts and professionals from across the globe, the 2018 Congress will provide the platform for the discussion and exploration of upcoming infrastructure projects, the latest developments in port construction, how to improve the safety and efficiency of modern port operations, and more.
With the growing need for shipping companies and port operators to establish smarter ways to deliver against the expectations of globalization and increasing scale and utilization of vessels, at the Congress, we’ll be discussing SmartPort by Trelleborg. SmartPort by Trelleborg is a technology platform that powers the critical interface between ship and port, on land and at sea. The SmartPort platform connects port operations, allowing operators to analyze asset performance and use data to improve decision making. The system integrates assets like fenders, mooring equipment, ship performance monitoring, and navigation systems through a network of sensors.
With that in mind, we’ll also be showcasing a number of our cutting-edge docking and mooring solutions for use in oil terminals operating at sub-zero temperatures, LNG terminals in the tropics and everything in between. Additionally, we’ll also be on hand to provide visitors with everything they need to know about our advanced navigation and piloting solutions for offshore energy and pilotage operations.
