Trelleborg discusses performance verification of marine fenders

Taking place in Singapore from 11-13 June, BTV is the most important and prestigious event in the PIANC YP-Com calendar for professionals working in maritime and waterfront infrastructure. YP-Com has developed numerous activities targeted for young professionals with the support of PIANC International and the National Sections.

At the event, Mishra Kumar, our Research and Development Director, will discuss the issues that exist with the current performance reporting of fenders by manufacturers, as well as full scale testing on finished products, to guarantee fender performance.

Mishra will be speaking on the second day of the event, will share valuable advice with delegates on how they can independently verify fender performance and establish whether the fenders meet project specifications.

Our team are delighted to further strengthen our long-standing association with PIANC and believe it is a real testament to our standing as the lead in the charge for improved fender performance. We believe that it is important to not only adhere to current standards and industry practices, but also to challenge them if improvements are there to be made. We look forward to sharing our knowledge with professionals across the industry.
