Launching rope splicing service in Asia Pacific
Additional rope splicing service emphasises customer commitment to providing one-stop solution.
Fendercare Marine Asia Pacific has recently launched a new rope splicing service for existing and new customers which is available from its Singapore base.
The service provides the splicing of polypropylene, nylon and mixture for up to 12-strand ropes. The type of rope ends available will include covered soft eyes, thimble eye, and thimble and master link, and Fendercare Marine will also consider any special customer requirements.
Rohan Pande, business development manager, commented of the development;
“Fendercare Marine Asia Pacific has long been established as a leading stockist of high tenacity PP, mixture, nylon and UHMWPE rope products for the mooring, towing, offshore and oil and gas industries. We import and sell approximately 3,000 coils of ropes every year from India, Korea and Germany. By adding a rope splicing facility, we are delighted to offer a fully comprehensive rope service to our existing and new customers.”
Fendercare Marine Asia Pacific was established in Singapore in 2000 and has enjoyed year-on-year growth in product sales ever since offering rope, Yokohama fenders, oil transfer hoses, buoyancy and deck and quayside mooring equipment.
Since 2007, Fendercare Marine Asia Pacific has increased the number of ship-to-ship (STS) operations successfully completed from 157 to over 540, and the range of locations being serviced has also increased during that time with the company operating in six designated STS locations in the region.
As well as standard/commercial STS operations, Fendercare Marine Asia Pacific has also been involved in emergency operations to assist in lightering cargo from potentially dangerous vessels/situations and to assist in keeping cargo contained in a safe environment. A large stock of equipment on the ground, a pool of highly experienced local mooring masters, and a dedicated operations team on 24/7 cover, allow Fendercare Marine Asia Pacific to respond promptly to these scenarios.
