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.
