We will be exhibiting our portfolio of advanced marine fender system solutions, docking and mooring equipment, oil and gas transfer technology and piloting solutions at Sea Japan 2018, to be held from 11 to 13 April at the Tokyo Big Sight Exhibition Center in Tokyo, Japan.
Attracting more than 19,000 visitors from across the globe, Sea Japan is the country’s largest and fastest growing international commercial marine show. Sea Japan provides the ideal platform to showcase our comprehensive range of advanced, high performance solutions to one of Trelleborg’s key markets. Japan, being a highly quality-driven market, complements the Trelleborg ethos and our unwavering commitment to taking a smarter approach to port and terminal efficiency.
On stand, we will showcase SafePilot, our new generation of navigation & piloting software, designed by a dedicated team of software programmers working closely together with worldwide maritime pilots. The result is the most professional and user friendly PPU (Portable Pilot Unit) software. A touch screen interface allows quick interaction to make piloting smoother. The instant zoom function and new intelligent chart structure improves response and decision-making times, giving pilots greater control and accuracy in maneuver.
SafePilot is part of SmartPort, our answer to the need for a standardized way to collect and use data. It’s a technology platform that connects port operations, allowing users to analyze asset performance and apply data insights, to improve day-to-day decision making for optimized operations; improved safety, reduced costs, greater sustainability and increased revenue return. Putting our customers’ needs at the center, SmartPort is setting the true course for consistent commercial success, now and for the future.
