NEW FILM SHOWCASES THE IMPORTANCE OF AN “END-TO-END” SOLUTION

By Richard Hepworth, President, Trelleborg Marine Systems

Port and terminal owners and operators, consultants and contractors are constantly under pressure. Whilst continually adapting to accommodate a changing market – increasing vessel sizes and a broader variety of ships are placing new demands on facilities, not to mention the increasing prevalence of specialised projects. They must also find ways to reduce downtime, improve accountability and ensure that marine environments are safe and operationally efficient.

Our new film highlights just how vital it is, especially in these demanding environments, to use quality materials from reliable suppliers.  Calling on the strength of in-house design, engineering and manufacturing can help to ensure that specifiers procure products and solutions that demonstrate excellence beyond installation.

Aiming to raise awareness about how to get the best value and service throughout the supply chain, the film illustrates the entire fendering and docking and mooring production process, from conceptual design through to manufacture, quality control, testing and after sales care.

Check out the full End-to-End film here.

We’ll also be releasing this film in chapters over the coming weeks, so look out for the detail on “Conceptual Design”, “Docking and Mooring Manufacture”, Fender Manufacture” and finally, “Testing and Aftersales”.

NATIONAL GRID LNG TERMINAL – VIDEO CASE STUDY

Richard Hepworth, Managing Director, Trelleborg Marine Systems


As vessel sizes steadily increase, so too do the pressures exerted on port infrastructure and ports around the world need to proactively work to manage these increased vessel sizes.  We’ve selected the work we did with the National Grid LNG terminal at the Isle of Grain in England to showcase how industry can work together to proactively tackle these potential issues.  The case study features the upgrade of jetty ten and the construction of a new jetty at the terminal. This enables the new breed of large LNG vessels to berth and discharge or load contents to and from the facility, thus improving the production rate at the plant.   See Part One of the case study here and keep an eye on our YouTube site for the next instalments.
