Parallel Motion Fenders are individually engineered systems and could be designed with different rubber fender units, but typically with Cone Fenders, Cell Fenders or Element Fenders.

A turning lever arm (torsion arm) is mounted between the back structure (concrete or steel) and the frontal steel panel. The arm restrains the panel movement during the entire fender compression, allowing it to move only parallel to its mounting, irrespective of impact level and angle.

Parallel Motion Fender systems have to be uniquely designed for each project in order to cover all the individual vessel and berthing requirements as well as the site conditions. The Parallel Motion Fender system can be delivered pre-assembled, depending on size.



Characteristics

  • Equal energy absorption capacity at any impact level
  • The torsion resistant arm of the system allows only parallel panel movments and eliminates a secound ship/panel contact
  • Reaction forces could be substantially lower for back-to-back rubber unit configuration
  • Lower reaction forces lead to lower hull pressures and lighter substructure, which reduces the overall project cost


Applications

  • Bulk Terminals
  • Oil & Gas Terminals
  • Ferry & RoRo Terminals
  • Monopiles
  • Load sensitive structures

Pile Fenders are a common alternative to Parallel Motion Fenders and could be designed with different rubber fender units, but typically with Cone Fenders, Cell Fenders, Element Fenders or V Fenders. The pile foot rotates around a level well below water whereby the lower tip of the fender is fixed either into a shoe on the seabed or by welding a support bracket to the substructure. Pile Fenders can ensure a single point contact between the vessel and fender system at any water level. The energy absorbing rubber unit is typically positioned close to main sea level and provides the energy at all levels. The panel itself is typically inclined to follow the vessel belting and level deviations between unladen and fully laden conditions at all water levels.

Pile Fenders are widely used in Northern Europe.

Pile Fender systems have to be uniquely designed for each project in order to cover all the individual vessel and berthing requirements as well as the site conditions.



Characteristics

  • Single ship/panel contact design
  • Possible savings in substructures with existing quay walls
  • Can cope with high impact levels and low deck levels


Applications

  • Container & Bulk Terminals
  • Oil & Gas Terminals
  • Ferry & RoRo Terminals
  • Terminals with sheet pile walls or pile structures with concrete capping beams 

The V Fender is a rigid and simple molded one piece rubber fender type. V Fenders are available in different cross sections, SX and SH. The main difference is the width of the fender head and resulting surface load. Each type can be equipped with an additional embedded steel plate in the rubber fender head (SX-P and SH-P). This allows the installation of an UHMW-PE frontal plate, a steel fender panel or the mounting of the fender unit behind a pile construction.

Both V Fenders (SX and SH) are available in standard heights from 250 to 1,000 mm, in standard length ranging from 1,000 to 3,500 mm, each in 3 different main rubber grades.
