Ship-to-ship (STS)

For bunkering operations between two vessels, floating fenders such as pneumatic or foam elastomer fenders are typically used. Since its creation until today, more than 500 fenders have been supplied worldwide both for ship-to-ship and ship-to-dock operations serving our valuable customers.

These fenders play a critical role in the safe operation of ship berthing and mooring.

Fender is a bumper used to absorb the kinetic energy of a boat or vessel berthing against a jetty, quay wall or other vessels.

Fenders are used to prevent damage to boats, vessels and berthing structures.

To do this, fenders usually have high energy absorption and low reaction force. Fenders are typically manufactured out of rubber, foam elastomer. The type of fender that is most suitable for an application depends on many variables, including dimensions and displacement of the vessel, maximum allowable stand-off, berthing structure, tidal variations and other berth-specific conditions. The size of the fender unit is based on the berthing energy of the vessel which is related to the square of the berthing velocity.
