Yet another batch of fenders for berthing facilities was successfully supplied by specialists of Kronstadt Engineering Company under the Magadan seaport reconstruction project.
The reconstruction works on the 4th and 5th berths of the port are carried out under the federal government program of economic and social development of the Far East and Baikal regions, which ends in 2018.
Over the course of these works, worn dockside walls have been completely replaced with new elements made of special corrosion-resistant and temperature-drop tolerable materials to increase their durability and the total service life of the facilities.
In their turn, the arc-shaped fenders DGH-A600x2000 RH and DGH-A300Hx2500 RL, supplied by Kronstadt Engineering Company, shall protect vessels from mechanical impacts while mooring and dockage.
A total of 56 kits of the both fender types have been dispatched to the customer in the latest supply. It is not the first time Kronstadt Engineering Company carries out supplies to the Magadan seaport. Earlier, 26 kits of cone-shaped fenders were purchased for the same reconstruction purposes.
DGH arc-shaped fenders have simple, yet highly efficient design that offers great axial movements compensation as demonstrated in computer-simulated load distribution calculations. Depending on the application and vessel type, the fenders can be equipped with steel face frames or polyethylene pads.
This year already, icebreaking and transport vessels coming to the port will be docking at the new berths, as first reconstructed berth was commissioned two months ago. From now on, the Magadan seaport will be able to dock deep-draft ships, which will have a positive effect on the port capacity and cargo throughput.
