Manuplas Success at Seawork

10th July 2017

Manuplas promoted their vessel fendering systems, quayside fenders and buoys at Seawork 2017.

Vessel operators looking for cost effective fendering showed significant interest in the lightweight vessel fendering systems Manuplas displayed. These fenders are 60% lighter in weight than traditional rubber fenders. This helps to reduce fuel consumption and improve the speed of vessels.

The fenders can be supplied as a modular configuration which makes it easier, quicker and more cost effective to replace worn or damaged sections. Vessel downtime is therefore also reduced significantly.

The Manuplas fenders displayed at Seawork are manufactured from a cross-linked polyethylene foam with a non-marking spray applied polyurethane elastomer skin. They are popular with operators of a range of vessels including wind farm services vessels, high-speed interceptor vessels, lifeboats, military vessels, crew transfer monohulls / catamarans, patrol boats and search and rescue vessels.

Greg Hue, Global Sales Manager for Manuplas Marine and Fendering Products says: "Seawork was a great opportunity to tell the market about our on-going research that has gone into developing leading concepts for lightweight fender solutions."

Visitors to the Manuplas stand at Seawork also viewed other products from the Manuplas range including cast vessel fendering, floating fenders and a range of surface buoys such as mooring buoys and navigation buoys which are popular with ports and harbours worldwide.

Manuplas were pleased to see their customers Alicat Workboats, MPI Offshore and Goodchild Marine displaying vessels on the quayside at Seawork which showcased Manuplas fendering systems. There were also Manuplas floating fenders in use.
