Issues in the Marine Equipment and Construction industry
Tackling the most important issues in the Marine Equipment & Construction industry
Developing maintenance-free solutions that maximize safe operations and improve productivity is a priority throughout the marine industry. Trelleborg’s engineering expertise accelerates efficiency in onshore, offshore and ship-to-ship environments.
Maximize use of your infrastructure
To increase profitability, shipping vessels are getting larger. At the same time, it is very difficult to expand ports in many locations, which in turn results in serious safety issues as well as a lack of berth space. Bottleneck effects are worsened by the fact that vessels’ estimation of arrival times is generally very poor. With some 45 percent of all container vessels delayed by more than eight hours, the potential for increased efficiency is huge.
We are aware that your port needs an overview of the vessel turnaround process and data extraction points throughout it – both on board the vessel and in the port, and in the interface between the two. To enhance efficiency and increase safety, you must keep the traffic overview and take in weather station information in real time, functions, data and schedules.
Equipment performance and durability plays a key role in improving operational uptime. If your port cannot be used in an optimized way, your cost will increase. Make sure that your port can be used to its full capacity and that unplanned maintenance is kept to a minimum.
