October’s “Prevention First: An Onshore and Offshore Pollution Prevention Symposium & Technology Exhibition”, provided the ideal platform to discuss the importance of technical and aftersales support, and the service Trelleborg Marine Systems offers.
Here at Trelleborg, we offer a complete range of fendering, docking and mooring solutions, as well as a one-stop-shop for technical, operational and maintenance support. Our most recent Barometer Report revealed a huge gap in the maintenance requirements of port owners and operators, and the support that suppliers are able to provide. So it was great to use the exhibition as a platform to connect with stakeholders to discuss where suppliers fall short and what more we can do to give them the support they need.
Ultimately, successful projects engage suppliers from the earliest possible stages, to get input and guidance on what will be the most appropriate solution on a case-by-case basis. That’s why we provide stakeholders with support from the earliest design stages to aftersales support. In particular, it was great to discuss our program for the North American market, and its development in accordance with OCIMF, SIGTTO and PIANC guidelines.
We also had a comprehensive team of sales and technical experts on stand to take visitors through the role Trelleborg played in the first phase of implementation of the Marine Oil Terminal Engineering and Maintenance Standards (MOTEMS). The standards apply to all existing and new marine oil terminals in California, and include criteria for inspection, structural analysis and design including mooring and berthing requirements.
The Prevention First exhibition is organised by the California State Lands Commission (CSLC), which sets the requirements for marine jetties throughout California.
