Trelleborg has won the contract to supply more than 100 of its SeaGuard foam fenders to Brunei Shell’s Kuala Belait supply base wharf in Brunei, through local Brunei registered contractor Waqi Sdn Bhd.

As part of an upgrade project for the wharf, 93 fenders are required to span six berthing spaces. The fenders will be installed with spacing of 1.5 meters, covering a length along the entire Kuala Belait Supply Base Wharf of 325 meters. Trelleborg will also supply an additional 21 fenders as spares.

Steven Raaj, Operations Director at Waqi Sdn Bhd, said, “Trelleborg’s SeaGuard fenders provided a solution that could be installed quickly and would assure low maintenance requirements going forward. Trelleborg’s reputation preceded the company too: we knew that we needed a supplier with a proven track record to be able to deliver such large quantities so quickly.”

Trelleborg was previously awarded the largest foam fender contract ever, delivering over 700 SeaGuard foam fenders and accessories to the Port of Marseille.

Richard Hepworth, President at Trelleborg Marine Systems, said, “We always ensure that the right systems are supplied to specifiers on a case by case basis, to guarantee we’re offering the best value and most effective solution to each project over the lifetime of the fender systems.

“Although rubber remains the traditional material of choice for fenders, foam fenders have significant advantages over rubber in many cases. For Kuala Belait, a fast turnaround was essential – delivery commences this month and is expected to complete in March.”

The 114 fenders supplied are 1,000mm diameter x 1,500mm length SeaGuard foam filled fenders, representing an easily installed solution for the port. Low maintenance is assured because the polyurethane elastomer is highly resistant to the effects of ozone and ultra violet light.

Trelleborg said its SeaGuard fenders boast high energy absorption and low reaction force. They’re also non-marking, and thanks to their foam design, will never sink or deflate. Hull pressures are very low, making SeaGuard fenders gentle on soft-skinned ships.

Trelleborg’s SeaGuard fenders are available in a wide range of standard and custom sizes, and can be deployed floated or suspended, against a quay wall or for ship-to-ship operations, suiting sites with either small or large tidal changes. They also work just as well on new or old structures.
