Saipem SpA of Milan has awarded a contract to Fendercare for the supply of pneumatic fendering for the FSRU Toscana contract vessel due to be positioned off the Italian coast near Livorno in 2012.
The main fenders for this application are Yokohama units 4.5m in diameter by 9m long and fitted with aircraft tyre high protection nets. Fendercare is not only the leading supplier of Yokohama fenders but also the largest owner and operator of these units, utilising them on over 2,500 offshore operations each year. In other recent offshore LNG projects Fendercare supplied fendering systems for the Adriatic LNG and FSRU Golar freeze Dubai terminals. The company’s offering of fender equipment for the LNG industry is backed by a network of bases and a team of fender technicians on world-wide call.
