Kawasaki (KPM) have returned to the UK after exhibiting at SMM Hamburg 2018 4th-7th September! The trade fair brought together around 50,000 industry visitors from more than 120 countries, once again highlighting its importance as the leading international maritime trade fair. Under the motto “Trends in SMMart Shipping”, the fair focused on digitalisation and ‘green shipping’ this year.

 Thirteen halls covering a total of 93.000 m2 exhibition floor: SMM has again demonstrated in impressive ways that it is rightly called the biggest and most important trade fair of the global maritime sector. Bernd Aufderheide, President and CEO of Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH, is highly pleased with the outcome of the four-day event: “SMM 2018 was a full success, not only for us as the organisers but also, and especially so, for the exhibitors and visitors. We again welcomed the Who’s Who of the maritime world to our exhibition halls this year, and we have seen again that there is nothing that can replace the person-to-person interaction between the key players of the sector. We successfully addressed the shipping community’s most pressing issues, delivering fresh impetus for the future.” 

Kawasaki proudly exhibited it’s Staffa motors, including the HMF 3-speed motor which was demonstrated throughout the event.
The HMF three-speed models have three pre-set displacements which can be chosen from a wide range to suit specific application requirements. Motor displacement can be changed with ease while the motor is running. 
The HMF has been developed to ensure it can be relied upon, even in the most arduous conditions. Staffa radial piston motors have been known to run for over 70,000 hours in a variety of demanding applications without the need for replacement – the HMF motor is no different.
Once the HMF motor had been developed and manufactured, it underwent 1,000 hours of extensive testing to ensure it would be robust enough to withstand harsh conditions and applications. Click here for more information on our Radial Piston Motors.

KPM would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that visited the stand. It was a pleasure to meet some great new contacts and see some familiar faces again too!
