New fenders delivered for San Pedrito Terminal in Mexico
The port area of Manzanillo has a size of around 440 hectares with 19 berths that accommodate e.g. commercial vessels and cruise ships. Due to a refurbishment of the inland port “San Pedrito”, the Port Authority in Manzanillo (API Manzanillo) decided to replace the existing fender systems at all operating berths. The new fender systems had to match the existing fenders in terms of performance and berthing line to ensure a smooth operation, but due to the large variety of berth structures, the fenders had to be customized for each berth.
Our SFT Sales Engineers have designed a suitable and customized solution and were therefore awarded with the order at the beginning of the year. With our Spanish native speakers and well experienced colleagues, we combine local contact with international expertise. ShibataFenderTeam delivered 66 sets of SPC 1000 Cone Fender Systems (including steel panels of 3,020 x 2,120 mm) for the “San Pedrito” Terminal. Additionally, the order included 95 nos. Double Bitt Bollards (capacity 150 t) and around 2,000 pcs UHMW-PE replacement pads in various sizes. It took only 6 months from placing the order until the installation was finished in June 2020.
ShibataFenderTeam is proud to have been chosen by API Manzanillo for this fender replacement for one of the main Container Terminals at the Mexican Pacific Coast and we wish all shipping lines successful operations at “San Pedrito Terminal”. (#0915)
