Floating fender rental takes the pressure off: Trelleborg Marine Systems extends floating fender rental service to APAC region

Following the success of the recently launched floating foam and pneumatic fender rental service in Europe, Trelleborg Marine Systems are now extending the service to the Asia Pacific, Australia and China (APAC) region.

Trelleborg Marine Systems launched the service in Europe as a response to the need for fast turnaround and installation times on quality fendering systems. The extension to the service will mean that Trelleborg can deliver and install floating foam or pneumatic fenders within days to any location in the APAC region.

Richard Hepworth, managing director at Trelleborg Marine Systems said: “We recognized the market need for high quality temporary fendering systems in Europe and now we’re extending the scheme to the APAC region too.  Pneumatic and foam fenders provide an ideal solution for semi-permanent operations as they’re easy to deploy and require minimal maintenance. Rental is a highly cost effective solution for temporary applications and Trelleborg’s foam and pneumatic rental service offers a wide range of products.”

Pneumatic Fenders are known for their energy absorption, and have a low reaction force that makes them ideal for protection of LNG vessels, ocean platforms, floating structures, large docks and many load sensitive structures.

Foam Fenders are extremely resilient and have a high energy absorption for their reactive load. They can be used for almost any fendering application including ship-to-ship and can be floating or dock mounted.
