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.
