Naming ceremony of tug boats with SFT Fenders in Durban, South Africa
In 2015 we have started to produce 8 sets of Cylindrical Fenders, W-Fenders and Wing-Type Fenders for new tug boats. Our client, South African Shipyards was awarded with a large contract from Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) to build a new fleet of tug boats. Two of the tug boats were officially named on May 6th 2016 and will start their service in June and July, respectively. We will deliver the last partial shipment at the end of 2016.
