Fendercare secures Asia-Pacific port deal

Fendercare has successfully extended its contract with one of the busiest ports in the world to supply specialised towing equipment to its tugboats.

The port authority was looking for a cost effective way to improve its harbour towing ship handling operations and after extensive trialling, has awarded Fendercare Asia Pacific a contract to supply Gleistein Dyneema towing grommets.

Gleistein products were chosen for their high quality and performance and the grommets have been designed, configured and manufactured to order to meet the port authority’s specific towing requirements. As part of an on-going arrangement with the port, Fendercare is also on hand to provide the port authorities with immediate onsite advice and technical support when required.

According to Fendercare’s senior business development manager in Singapore, David Joseph, the continued success of this relationship illustrates the benefit of close cooperation between Fendercare and its partner Gleistein – a global leader in rope technology.

‘We are optimistic that the experience we have gained here can be shared with other progressive port operators to help streamline their operations.’ he says.
