Trelleborg acquires Marimatech
Swedish-headquartered maritime major Trelleborg has, through its business area Trelleborg Offshore & Construction, signed an agreement to acquire Marimatech A/S, a Danish company that designs and manufactures advanced marine positioning and piloting systems, primarily specializing in the development of software used for docking and mooring ships offshore and in ports.
Richard Hepworth, President of Trelleborg’s marine systems operation, said: “Marimatech’s navigation and ship positioning product line uses the latest ‘smart’ technology and can be utilized in other applications. This technology can be integrated with our existing product range, as we look to take a smarter approach to port and terminal efficiency, and extend the automation that is becoming increasingly well-established on the land side, to the jetty side too.”
The acquisition will enhance Trelleborg’s current docking and mooring solutions portfolio. Trelleborg’s marine systems operation designs, manufactures and installs bespoke fender systems, docking and mooring equipment, oil and gas transfer technology, ship performance systems and subsea buoyancy equipment for marine environments all over the world.
Connected to the deal the UK’s Port of Milford Haven stated: “The Port of Milford Haven has today (16th December) announced that it has concluded an agreement to sell its investment in Marimatech A/s as part of a sale of the whole of the Marimatech business to Trelleborg Offshore and Construction.”
Alec Don, Chief Executive of the Port of Milford Haven, said “Marimatech has been a profitable investment for the port. More importantly Marimatech’s new world-beating Safepilot navigation software is now an integral part of our operation, making a major contribution to safe navigation within the port.”
