Manuplas® supply lightweight fendering for French Navy

Working with our customers in Etpo France, Charier GC, our marine team supplied twenty-four floating fenders which will be delivered to the French Navy for their newly built FREMM vessel.

With a size of 2.5m x 4m, we recommended our sprayed polyurethane fenders because of their low reaction force and high energy absorption; features which ensure maximum protection to their vessel in the event of impact to the fenders.

Alongside the fendering, we supplied all relevant hardware including the chains and metal work. Our fendering provides:

• Reduced fuel costs – our fenders are lighter than traditional fendering, resulting in cost savings and ensures the vessel reaches maximum speeds quicker
• Quick and easy installation – fixed with chains to the hull
• Peace of mind – confidence that the high energy absorption of the fendering will reduce the effect of any impact
