DP World, UAE Region, has incorporated Trelleborg’s rubber quality standards into their fender specification for the Quay four refurbishment project at Terminal 1 of Jebel Ali Port in Dubai.

 

Working on the project with DP World since 2011, Trelleborg has supplied 60 super cone SCN 1300 fenders to protect berths 18 and 19, which have been fully installed this past April.
 
Richard Hepworth, President of Trelleborg’s marine operation, says: “We’ve been working on raising awareness of the issue of rubber quality for a while, and it’s brilliant to see this work translating in practical terms in the market.
 
“DP World wanted to ensure they could verify the quality of the rubber that would be used in the fender systems for the berths – and as such, built rubber quality parameters into the specification to protect themselves from the risk of poor quality substitutes.” 
 
Trelleborg advised DP World to test the final fenders when they arrived on site or before shipping from the facility with an analytical test developed earlier this year. DP World randomly selected one or two fenders while visiting Trelleborg’s manufacturing plant in Qingdao, China for further TGA testing to ensure continuity of quality throughout the production process.   
 
Hesham Abdulla, Container Terminal 1 Director, DP World, UAE Region, says: “Trelleborg was able to offer technical support across all parts of the system, from ensuring the rubber element would precisely meet specification, to chains and accessories. Their support and local presence meant that they were a natural choice to supply the project and thanks to their in-house manufacturing capabilities we could even have the solution personalized.”
 
Personalization included the DP World logo on the unique UHMW PE face pads of the fenders.
 
Mariam Al Shamsi, Project Manager, Projects Development Department, DP World, UAE Region, said: “The Project is completed and the berth is currently operational”.
