Port equipment and technology
Enabling safe, sustainable and efficient ports
PEMA’s mission is to provide a forum and public voice for the global port equipment and technology sectors, reflecting their critical role in enabling safe, secure, sustainable and productive ports and thereby supporting world maritime trade. Chief among our aims is to foster good relations within the communities we represent, by providing a forum for the exchange of views on global trends in port equipment and technology design, manufacture, operation and maintenance. PEMA also aims to promote and support the global role of the port equipment and technology industries by raising awareness with the media, customers and other stakeholders; forging relations with other industry associations and bodies; and contributing to best practice initiatives. PEMA membership is open to suppliers of port equipment, providers of technology that supports port handling operations, and consultants in the fields of port and equipment design.

The Student Challenge finals took place at TOC Europe 2015 on Wednesday 10 June.
This year our finalists were the University of Hamburg, The Technical University of Hamburg-Harburg and Blekinge Institute of Technology from Sweden. Each team had 30 minutes to present their ideas on the 2015 theme – The Impact and Mitigation of Berth Error.
Judges conferred on the spot and awarded the winning team with a cheque for €1000. This year’s judging panel consisted of Lyes Chebrek of APM Terminals, Carly Fields of Port Strategy, Yvo Saanen of TBA, Arwin Stehouwer, Port of Rotterdam and Tom Ward from Parsons Brinkerhoff.
This information paper provides ports, terminals and other interested parties with information on the main types of tyres available for port equipment, the most common causes of damage and loss, and how to reduce costs, damage and accidents through correct selection, inspection and maintenance of this vital component.
