Trelleborg’s marine systems operation was presented at PIANC Australia’s Technical Workshop on Fenders on 15 June 2017. At the event, Mishra Kumar, Global Technical Director at Trelleborg’s marine systems operation, made a presentation on the subject of ‘Ensuring Fender Performance through Physical and Material Testing Specification’. 

Richard Hepworth, President of Trelleborg’s marine systems operation, said: “We have long supported the work of PIANC and our contribution to the technical seminar is just the latest in a long history of collaborative work. We look forward to continuing to work with PIANC and our industry peers to share ideas and best practice.”

Trelleborg was also Platinum Sponsor of PIANC’s Annual General Assembly (AGA) in Cairns, Australia, which took place from 17-20 June 2017. 

Finally, Trelleborg also hosted two of its own technical seminars in Australia, in Perth (12 June 2017) and Brisbane (14 June 2017). These seminars saw Trelleborg experts discuss rubber fender design, technology and testing, pneumatic fender design and application, as well as foam fender design and application.
