Trelleborg launches new pneumatic fender

Published by
LNG Industry,


Trelleborg has released a statement claiming that it has launched its new ISO17357-1:2014 compliant pneumatic fender. The fender will help to address the changing requirements of terminals, ports and ship-to-ship (STS) operations.

The fender has a lighter and thinner body, making it easier to transport and handle. It also features upgraded netting and hemispherical ends, which will help to ensure strong functional performance and improved continuity of end fittings for optimum deflection capability.

The President of Trelleborgs marine system operation, Richard Hepworth, said: “In addition to improvements in the design of the fender, materials have been engineered to ensure a stronger overall performance. After detailed research into optimum tire cord reinforcement, we have re-evaluated our materials to enhance fender performance.

The entire fender utilises 100% synthetic tire cord. This helps to improve the operational ability of the fender because the synthetic tire cord features a higher tensile strength than chafer fabric. This also ensures excellent shape retention.
