TRELLEBORG MARINE SYSTEMS TRELLEBORGFLOATING FENDER RENTAL FROM TRELLEBORG PROVIDES THE IDEAL SOLUTION FOR FLOATING HOTEL With two large industrial projects requiring a substantial labor force, the shetland Islands were facing something of a shortage in accommodation. To overcome this shortage, several floating hotels - or floatels - based on barges, were towed to Lerwick and Scalloway, to provide beds for up to 1,070 workers. As part of its innovative fender rental service, Trelleborg has supplied six of its high quality 1.5 x 3 meter pneumatic fenders to Shetland Maritime Ltd, on a long term lease. The fenders will safeguard the mooring of one of the floatel, helping to provide beds for the work force employed on the two multi-million pound industrial projects. Rental is a very cost effective solution for temporary applications and Trelleborg’s new foam and pneumatic rental service offers a wide range of quality assured products. Pneumatic fenders are known for their massive energy absorption, and have a low reaction force that makes them an ideal ship protection medium for LNG vessels, ocean platforms, floating structures, large docks and many load sensitive structures. “The docking of the accommodation vessel demanded a high quality fendering system capable of providing a safe and reliable cushion between the vessel and quay for the duration of both industrial projects.” “As such, although the application is only temporary, a high performance solution was required. Trelleborg supplied just that, with the delivery of its quality assured pneumatic fenders, through its cost-effective rental service.” Zander Simpson, Marine Consultant, Shetland Maritime Ltd Website: Email:
