Public Ferry Terminal in Gdynia, Poland equipped with SFT Element Fender Systems

It is the largest infrastructure project at the Port of Gdynia in nearly 50 years – the construction of the new public ferry terminal at an area of 30,000 m3. Gdynia is a port city on the Baltic coast of Poland. The Polish construction company Doraco has started the construction project in March 2019 and entrusted SFT with the delivery of 18 sets of FE 900 Element Fender Systems as well as 2 sets of FE 750 Element Corner Fender Systems. Additionally, we supplied DD Fenders and 13 pieces of Bollards with different capacities.  

The design of the Corner Fender Systems was challenging as the height of the concrete in this area had to be adjusted for constructability reasons by the client, so the Element Fenders length had to be changed and compensated by a height adjustment to maintain the needed fender performance. This is a perfect example of the SFT design approach and flexibility, to swiftly adapt to new circumstances while provide a high performance fender system for such.   

Our sales team in Hamburg has submitted all necessary and extensive documents for the approval process and the rubber fenders have also passed the demanding testing requirements including local property and traceability testing at an independent local testing facility. 

 The new berth was finished in June 2021 and is an important development for the port. It will increase transport accessibility from the sea way and therefore makes the port more competitive.  

Thanks to Doraco for choosing SFT as trusted supplier for the fender design and delivery for the public ferry terminal in Gdynia. We wish all ferry lines successful operations at the new terminal. (#4617) Y
