Our marine team worked closely with Northern Offshore Services (NOS) to manufacture two fender pads for their purpose built ambulance catamaran, that has been designed to enable an ambulance to be transported on the catamaran to improve the transfer and treatment of potentially critically ill patients.
The design and installation of effective fendering was key in this project to ensure benefits including:
- Reinforced for extra protection – reduce any effect of any impact on quay or harbour walls
- Lightweight design – enable the catamaran to reach maximum speed quickly, critical in an emergency
- Reduced fuel consumption – reduce operating costs
- Quick and easy to install – ensuring the catamaran is out of service for a short time frame
After sharing their design ideas, we worked with NOS to supply an appropriate solution to protect their vessel that is now operational in Sweden. We were delighted to be part of a project which resulted in the region’s ambulance helicopter being used less, and consequently lead to a reduction in costs.
If you are an operator and need to update or replace your vessel fendering, talk to our marine team.
