Trelleborg will showcase a Quick Release Hooks (QRHs) along with its SeaTechnik™ Universal Safety Link (USL) at Gastech, Korea.
Trelleborg’s new QRH Compact Series is designed for smaller mooring applications, where traditional large and more complex QRHs are not appropriate.
Richard Hepworth, President of Trelleborg Marine Systems, says: “I’m keen to get some deeper insights into what other delegates see as the most critical issues in the market.
“We have also developed a whitepaper, which we’ll have on stand, that discusses the evolution of docking and mooring solutions, fender systems and transfer technology across a range of LNG applications.”
The QRH Compact Series combines the knowledge of Trelleborg’s vastly experienced engineering team with FEA software, providing an optimized solution for less complex and lower rating mooring applications, and representing a viable alternative to bollards for commercial ports and fuel wharfs.
These smaller and simpler hooks have primarily been developed to meet the needs of commercial ports and wharfs, which require a more compact installation footprint than traditional hooks can offer. They are also suitable for replacement of more traditional bollard applications, but could also be used in the rapidly developing small-scale LNG sector.
The new hooks also reduce maintenance requirements through a single stage locking mechanism, which has fewer moving parts, and is available in a range of designs including single, double, triple and quad hooks in capacities up to 50T.
Trelleborg will also be showcasing its Seatechnik™ Universal Safety Link (USL), another truly innovative product optimised for the small scale LNG sector.
The USL was developed by Trelleborg in response to the market requirement for a Ship-Shore Link (SSL) which addressed the needs of the LNG marine fuel and small scale transfer market.
Gastech 2014 takes place at the Kintex, Korea from the 24th to the 27th March.
