Who are we?

At Trelleborg Infrastructure we design and engineer groundbreaking solutions that push the boundaries of what is possible. We work on (landmark) projects in build infrastructure where sealing, damping and protecting against water is the common challenge. This is what we have done for over 100 years. Projects we have been involved in are storm surge barriers like the Oosterscheldekering and Maeslandkering, water management projects like ‘Ruimte voor water’ and various immersed tunnels like Coentunnel, Heinenoordtunnel and many others all around the globe. Furthermore, we develop capabilities to seal and protect offshore wind applications and work on other renewable energy initiatives. We see projects getting more complex and larger in size, bringing the necessary challenges. What is our approach? We choose not to be a supplier only, but a trusted and capable business partner for our clients. While a supplier sells products, we offer long term solutions.

What’s the challenge?
At Trelleborg, we believe in partnerships. What do our customers really need and what is the key to their success? What, from our perspective, is technically possible to tackle the problem? What is happening in the market and how can we better serve the demands of that market, also taking into consideration the developments in Offshore Energy? Questions we must act on daily.
