STOCKHOLM—Trelleborg Marine Systems has won its largest foam fender contract yet, in terms of size and value.
The company said it will supply the Port of Marseille, France, with approximately 700 SeaGuard foam fenders and accessories, including chains and anchors, to equip 39 of the ports' quays.
The fenders are required to accommodate the diverse range of vessels which come to berth at the port. These include roll-on/roll-off car ferries, container ships, cruise ships, bulk carriers and even larger vessels such as tankers and containers.
Delivery will begin this year 2012 and extend into 2014.
Trelleborg also supply plastic pads that will be fitted to the quay wall to prevent abrasion of the fender body.
