France to make waves at Oceanlogy International 2018

Catherine Ryall - 01-mars-2018 12:50:02
The French pavilion organised by Business France , the national agency supporting the international development of the French economy , will play host to 21 exhibitors at Oceanology International 2018 in London on stands J200, K200 and K300, in partnership with Pôle Mer Bretagne Atlantique and Pôle Mer Méditerranée. The maritime industry is the world’s second largest economic sector, currently worth $1.5 trillion to the global economy, a figure that is set to rise to $3 trillion in 2030 (OECD). Alongside more traditional sectors, new industrial sub-sectors will emerge over the coming decades. They will chiefly revolve around the technologies required to exploit resources, as well as activity monitoring at sea and maritime security of the areas in which they take place. France has a strong hand to play when it comes to capturing a significant share of these expanding markets.   The French companies in attendance at Oceanology are firmly positioned in these traditional industrial sectors, continually innovating to remain competitive on the global markets.   The seas and oceans are at the crossroads of every economic sector and are thus a key area of development. The sea meets many needs of both humanity and our societies’ lifestyles: food, the energy transition, health, minerals, transport and leisure. The development of maritime activities will also create new economic segments along our coastlines, which, along with growing coastal population densities, will translate into a new approach to coastal management and the interfaces between land and sea, one that will drive new areas of activity (floating port infrastructures, water production and treatment, etc.).  Oceanology International is the only event in Europe devoted to marine resource exploitation and its various sub-sectors. The French exhibitors are keen to meet key decision makers, seek out partners and showcase their innovative product and technologies to foreign businesses within the industry.

French companies to exhibit in the ingredients fragrances and testing zones at In-Cosmetics Europe

Laure Bidault des Chaumes - 09-mars-2017 17:26:34
France is an internationally recognised supplier of raw materials for the cosmetics industry. Certified for their quality and purity, these raw materials comply with the strictest regulations and respect social ethics.  Rich in a range of plant, marine and mineral ingredients as well as chemically derived ones, they appeal to the largest international luxury brands. The French Touch will be represented by 91 French companies on the France Pavilion organised by Business France, at the In-Cosmetics Global trade fair  to be held from 4th to 6th April 2017 at London’s ExCel Center. These companies will be demonstrating their know-how in the Ingredients, Fragrances and Testing Zones of this year’s fair.   New products and key trends In 2015, the global market for cosmetics ingredients was estimated at US$ 9 billion (around £7.39 billion) in the key regions of Europe, the US, Brazil, China, Japan, Southeast Asia and India.  The market is constantly growing and benefits from innovative R&D that enables high-value added active ingredients to be developed. However, companies in the industry must also adapt to continually changing regulations. Many French companies will be launching new products, improved formulas or responding to new trends at In-Cosmetics. We note particular growing interest in protecting the skin from the effects of pollution .  French ingredients suppliers offer solutions that form a screen against pollution by means of a film acting as a second skin. Others rely on active ingredients that are powerful antioxidants and anti-lipoperoxidants, or have anti-glycation or anti-free radical properties , which decrease inflammation, moisturise the skin and act against pigmentation marks caused by pollution. Detox programmes have been developed to counteract urban stress.   Testing, Testing… Creating new active ingredients requires the development of customised in vivo, in vitro and ex vivo biological tests. French laboratories specialised in toxicity testing look for evidence of endocrine disruptors in volunteers (both men and women) . They will be exhibiting in the Testing zone. For the first time, the Fragrances Zone is exhibiting perfumed ceramics made of Limoges porcelain (stand Q50). While the French offering includes a wide range of natural and organic plant, marine and mineral (clay type) ingredients of certified origin, it also bases its offer on their absence of residues , which is greatly appreciated by large brands.  The French build their reputation on very pleasing, light and fluffy textures, the reflective effects of pigments and on colour control thanks to the use of very specialised software. These ingredients are not only intended for the cosmetics industry, but also for the pharmaceutical and food industries. Being environmentally conscientious , some French laboratories use living plant cells by ’milking’ their roots up to six times per year, which preserves the parent plant; others use renewable and biodegradable ingredients. With the help of regional partners such as Bretagne Commerce International , Cosmetic Valley , DEV-UP  and CCI Aquitaine , the Business France  Pavilion (National Agency promoting internationalisation of the French economy) will be displaying the latest French innovations at the 2017 edition of In-Cosmetics Global. All of the participants will be present in three blocks in the South Hall: -    stands C10 – CC10 – C30 – CC30 – C50 and CC50 for Ingredients -    stands P52 to PP57 and on pods PP50 – Q50 – Q51 and QQ55 for Fragrances -    stands D30 and D50 for Testing   For further information please see the catalogue or please contact: Christiane Peslherbe Project Manager Business France Paris Tel: +33 1 40 73 36 90 christiane.peslherbe@businessfrance.fr http://export.businessfrance.fr Press contact UK : Catherine Ryall catherine.ryall@businessfrance.fr

Burgess Marine banks on Port of Cherbourg to grow its business as it signs synchrolift usage agreement with PNA

Fran Lambert - 07-oct.-2015 13:51:37
Burgess Marine, the UKs largest independent ship repairer, and the Ports of Normandy Authority (PNA) have signed a priority usage agreement for the synchrolift located at the Port of Cherbourg in France for the period running from 29th September 2015 to 31st March 2016.  The first vessel, MV Wight Light, a 63m-long car and passenger ferry ensuring the connection between the Isle of Wight and Portsmouth, was dry-docked on 29th September. MV Wight Light is the first in a series of six vessels belonging to British company Wightlink to be maintained at the Cherbourg site by Burgess Marine, a company specialising in ship maintenance and repair as well as the refitting of passenger ships and yachts. Burgess Marine will also be subcontracting local Cherbourg company Construction métallique de l’Ouest (CMO). At the forefront of specialised marine engineering and bespoke marine fabrication, Burgess Marine is one of the largest independent UK companies in the industry, with 130 employees and a turnover of approximately 33 million euros.  In renting the Cherbourg synchrolift for a long period, the operator, currently undergoing a period of growth, secures the availability of a rare piece of equipment only a few miles from its base in the south of England. The synchrolift, 90m long, 32m wide and with a lifting capacity of 3,000t, offers particular ease of access for refitting operations due to the clear flat area created around the vessel. “This agreement represents significant expansion for us as we continue to grow our business,” says Nick Warren, Managing Director of Burgess Marine. “It will allow us to develop a close and beneficial working relationship with PNA and subcontractors in Cherbourg, as well as develop greater cross Channel links and more potential business opportunities.” Cherbourg: A hub for shipbuilding and repair The signing of this usage agreement validates the investments made by PNA since 2011 and vindicates the efforts of local businesses in their ambition to position the Port Cherbourg as a hub for shipbuilding and repair.  With a pier for a 50t marine travelift, a 300t marine travelift, a 3,000t synchrolift, a technical zone of nearly 1ha and a further 2ha zone for new worksites, the Port of Cherbourg is now able to offer complete and coherent services for managing a wide range of projects. Port of Cherbourg About PNA Owner and manager of the ports of Caen-Ouistreham and Cherbourg since 2007, PNA is a joint association encompassing the Lower Normandy region and the Manche and Calvados departments. Its role is to develop all port interests, select those working at the ports, manage port development policies and guarantee secure maritime access. The mission entrusted to PNA by its member associations is to maximise the performance of these two ports to best serve their territories and overcome development challenges.
