Trelleborg's marine systems operation hosted an exclusive one-day seminar for port authorities and consultants in partnership with the company's exclusive agent for Greece, Seamark Marine on 1st March at the Metropolitan Chandris Hotel in Athens, Greece.

The free seminar saw experts at Trelleborg discuss a range of key industry issues including marine fender selection, infrastructure regulation, the latest in docking and mooring technology, and floating fender and buoy design. In addition, the importance of rubber compound composition in the whole-life performance of fender systems was also on the agenda.

Richard Hepworth, President of Trelleborg's marine systems operation, says: "The seminar provided the ideal platform for us to connect with port authorities and consultants to discuss the importance of taking a smarter approach to port and terminal equipment optimization through the specification of smart, engineered solutions for port approach, berthing, docking and mooring. This will enable ports and terminals to reap the rewards of better informed real-time and strategic decision making, both onshore and on board the vessel.

"Following on from the seminar in Athens we will host further one-day events across Europe, which we'll be revealing more information about in due course."
