COLLABORATION IS KING FOR THE HALO EFFECT

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

As part of our recent ‘Preparing for the Port of the Future’ Report, renowned futurist Gerd Leonhard highlighted the need for us an industry to get to grips with the fact that the future isn’t about doing one thing best, it’s about connecting to others that are leading in adjacent and relevant fields.

It’s in this spirit that we’ve forged a new strategic partnership with Teekay Marine Solutions which is part of Teekay, one of the world’s largest marine energy, transportation, storage and production companies.

Bringing together Trelleborg’s manufacturing capability and Teekay’s operations expertise, we’ve launched HALO Fenders, a new premium pneumatic fender offering. With stock in three strategic locations to ensure fast global delivery, there are 32 rental and service bases with a fleet of 400 fenders to ensure we can provide fast, local maintenance and repair.

Working with Teekay, we can provide a premium offering that enables operators to source, deploy and maintain pneumatic fenders safely and efficiently, with a reassuring service structure that ensures these high quality solutions are supported for the life of the project.

We’ve worked closely with Teekay to develop what we believe is an industry leading offer – and one that supports the needs of STS transfer as well as the wider marine market. I believe that HALO Fenders will offer unbeatable safety, reliability and responsiveness – enabling operators to guarantee efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

We’ll be launching HALO Fenders at Gastech in Tokyo (4-7 April), so if you’re attending come and see us on stand 16-320 in hall 2.

 

TRELLEBORG ENGINEER JOINS PRESTIGIOUS GASTECH YOUNG ENGINEER FOUNDATION

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

We call ourselves the Performance People because we ensure the right support is in place for our customers from conceptual design to after sales care. To enable us to deliver truly end-to-end service to our customers, we’re committed to the professional development of our staff.

With that in mind, I am delighted to reveal that Matthew Walker, Project Engineer at our operation in Australia has been handpicked to join the esteemed Gastech Young Engineer Foundation (GYEF).

Given the growing need to attract young talent to the energy industry, the GYEF recognizes and supports the next generation of engineers. The GYEF’s committee, which represents several leading figures in the global energy industry, selected Matthew as one of just 80 successful candidates from several hundred applicants.

Bolstering the professional development of engineers in the early stages of their career, the GYEF has awarded Matthew access to an exclusive package of educational and networking opportunities. This includes a complementary delegate pass for the 2015 Gastech Conference & Exhibition in Singapore (27th – 30th October 2015), providing the opportunity to connect and network with peers and industry leaders. In addition, Matthew has also been awarded a lifetime membership to Gastech’s Young Engineer Alumni and granted unlimited access to online mentoring from thought leaders through a dedicated section of the GYEF website.

For Matthew to be recognized so enthusiastically at such an early stage in his career is a phenomenal feat. We hold a long-standing commitment to the professional development of our staff, and this is testament to our ability to produce industry ready talent.
