QuayQuip received an order to upgrade the fender system for the roll-on/roll-off berth at Mclnroy’s Point Gourock. The total fender system consists of 4 QME leg fenders with UHMW Friction Pads and 1 Parallel Motion fender system.
The QME fender systems are 7.3 meters long with 90 millimetres thick UHMW-PE pads. QuayQuip’s Parallel Motion Fender with a non-tilt frontal panel and no performance loss at large berthing angles was perfectly suitable for RoRo vessels, as requested for this project. The Parallel Motion Fender, which is located at the start of the berth, will absorb the main energy during the berthing process. The Twin Cone Fenders, attached back to back, will double the energy absorption and reduce the load on the tubular steel piles.
Another great project successfully installed by QuayQuip.
