JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
Orkot marine bearings, developed and manufactured by Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, contribute to the build of large and efficient container ships as the Maersk Triple E class family built by Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding.
The "Triple E" name is derived from the class's three design principles: "Economy of scale, Energy efficient and Environmentally improved". At 400 meters/ 1,312 feet long, the ships are able to carry 2,500 more containers than the E class ships they replaced. The class uses a strategy known as slow steaming, which is expected to lower fuel consumption by 37 percent and carbon dioxide emissions per container by 50 percent. The Triple E design helped Maersk win a "Sustainable Ship Operator of the Year" award in July 2011.Orkot marine bearingsOrkot marine bearings are manufactured from a unique synthetic composition incorporating solid lubricants for dry running to ensure good wear life. Virtually no swelling in seawater and very low thermal coefficient of expansion provide dimensional stability in arctic and tropical seas. The bearings do not corrode or promote corrosion of the housing and tolerate both edge loading and misalignment.
