Trelleborg: ‘Worrying Gap’ in Automation Attitudes

  28 Mar 2017

Trelleborg Marine Systems President Richard Hepworth has highlighted a 'worrying gap' in attitudes towards automation in his latest Marine Insight

Big Data in the Maritime Industry

Big data has the potential to transform our industry. Through application and insights, big data is creating new opportunities to drive innovation and deliver tangible operational efficiencies across the shipping world. But information alone is not enough. It is the analysis of this data and the actionable insights it provides that will move our industry forward and determine our future.

Evolving an Offering: Analysing Industry Results

Only 36% of ports and terminals claim to have seen increased pressure from shipping lines in terms of the importance placed on automation and digitisation. However, the survey results certainly suggest that shipping lines do value new technologies: half of the vessel stakeholders surveyed feel ports and terminals are immature in adopting Smart technologies.

The Reality of Automation

Shipping, it goes without saying, is a critical industry within the rapidly evolving global economy and one that will be impacted hugely by the evolution of technology. Whilst the shipping industry is a notoriously conservative one, it is not immune to the advances of technology and we cannot avoid embracing it. If current industry players don’t, others will, and we could risk losing our relevance...

Automatic Upgrades: Accommodating Mega-Ships

Trelleborg’s brand new Barometer Report found that 29% of those surveyed feel the industry is lagging behind when it comes to implementing upgrades to port infrastructure to accommodate increasing vessel sizes

Berthing the World’s Largest Vessels

Historically, port infrastructure has been designed to accommodate a certain size and type of vessel. This paper explores the impact of vessels continuing to grow larger and more diverse, on the demands placed on a ports infrastructure.

An evolving industry - Trelleborg

This article looks at the issue of quality in marine fenders, with further problems surrounding the under-cutting of fender prices. Trelleborg and its competitors are aware of lower quality and prices in fenders and appreciate that, due to the industry evolving, manufacturers are operating with more transparency.

Evolving solutions for ship-to-ship LNG transfer in tandem configuration

FLNG is now technically and economically proven in enabling previously unviable gas fields to be exploited, and while the industry looks to move further offshore, there are lessons to be learned and best practices to be taken from onshore and near shore applications. However, an understanding of the complexities and individual requirements of more extreme offshore environments is key to successful systems development in FLNG...

Developing efficient marine fender solutions

As vessels have grown larger and more diverse, so have the demands on fenders. In this article, Richard Hepworth, a chartered mechanical engineer and president of Trelleborg Marine Systems (TMS) and Chartered Mechanical Engineer, discusses this relationship and how, despite the fact that it’s possible to broadly identify which fender may be right for the job, it remains essential that each project and its specific...

Innovation to reduce downtime

Industry survey, the Barometer Report 2 from Trelleborg Marine Systems (TMS), has revealed that eight out of ten ports suffer from unscheduled downtime and, of these ports, almost half are down for approximately 10 percent of the time. The findings reflect a similar position to that of the previous year, when the report was introduced. The fact that the industry is not getting to grips...

Critical design characteristics of quality quick release hooks

The time for disputing the value of quick release hooks (QRH) is long gone; decades of successful applications have proven their worth over traditional bollards. But with so many hook manufacturers and suppliers vying for market share, the debate over what makes a quality QRH is still very much in the minds of port operators.
