Fenders-to-fit for Japanese defence force

Fendercare Marine is continuing its reputation as the leading Yokohama fender specialist with the supply of mooring equipment to the largest vessel in the Japanese defence force.

The team was tasked with supplying a fendering solution at very short notice for the Destroyer, JS Kaga which was completing a tour of the Indo-Pacific region. The order included two 3.3m x 6.5m and eight 2.5m x 5.5m fenders on short-term hire for the 250m-long, air-craft-carrier to facilitate its stay at the Changi Naval Base in Singapore.

This is the second contract Fendercare Marine has completed for the Japan Maritime Self-Defence Force (JMSDF).

Charmaine Wong Beardsworth at Fendercare Marine Asia Pacific says:

‘We’re used to getting orders on short notice but were delighted to get this job. Fendercare has previously supported the JMSDF on manoeuvres and we were pleased to once again be able to deliver everything required on time.

‘Our team went the extra mile during mobilisation and demobilisation, putting in extra hours to get everything ready within tight operating windows.’

As Japan’s largest serving military ship since WW2, the JS Kaga was visiting Singapore as part of a wider tour of the region which also included stays in the Philippines, Sri Lanka, India and Indonesia.
