World-leading supplIER and manufacture
Fendercare Marine has supplied Yokohama submarine fenders to many navies around the world, including those of Australia, Brazil, Canada, Greece, Japan, the United Kingdom and the USA. The Yokohama submarine floating fender was launched in 1984 and since then has been extensively used by navies across the world.
Advantages of fenders over alternative, traditional berthing methods include:
In order to provide full protection at surface and subsurface, our submarine fenders are deployed vertically. To maintain their position, the fenders are water ballasted and also have a counterweight attached to the bottom of the fender. The weight, shape and method of deployment of the counterweight can be adjusted to suit individual situations.
Submarine fenders are designed to offer higher bursting strength than a normal surface fender, with the minimum burst pressures being:
To facilitate water charge and discharge, flange openings are sited at each end of the fender. In addition, submarine fenders are fitted with a safety valve to enable excess pressure to be released should over compression occur.
Submarine fenders are available in the following standard sizes and pressures, offering a fender system to cope with all designs of submarine, from the smallest conventional submarine to the largest nuclear submarine in service today.
