Sweden-headquartered marine polymers expert Trelleborg’s marine systems operation has relocated and almost doubled the size of its engineering and design centre of excellence in a new 1,000 square metre premises in Ahmedabad, India.
Since 2009, the marine centre of excellence has provided detailed engineering design, modelling and analysis for projects across multiple operations within Trelleborg. The new premises represent a significant expansion to Trelleborg’s in-house engineering capability, which includes Finite Element Analysis (FEA), while growing Trelleborg’s team of industry-leading multi-disciplined structural, mechanical and electrical engineers.
Amit Madan, Regional Director (IMEA) at Trelleborg’s marine systems operation, said: “While many companies outsource their engineering and manufacturing requirements, Trelleborg continues to invest in its market-leading in-house capability.
“Our previous premises provided fantastic support and extremely quick design turnaround for our marine systems operation. However, the new Indian centre of excellence promises to further strengthen our end-to-end service from design through manufacturing and testing, to installation and maintenance.”
The marine operation of Trelleborg Infrastructure & Construction, manufactures and installs bespoke fender systems, docking and mooring equipment, oil and gas transfer technology and vessel efficiency technology for marine environments all over the world. Its polymer engineering expertise also extends to its range of general marine products, including navigation aids and buoys.
