QuayQuip fenders for US Navy composite submerged camels

Arch Fenders for Submerged Composite Camel

The ever-versatile QuayQuip QSA Arch Fender has recently been supplied to firms building composite submerged camels to US Navy submarine bases.

The first new camels were installed in naval bases in 2010 and quickly proved their worth. Combining the lightness and corrosion resistance of composite materials with easy installation and a far simpler inventory (just one type for all submarine classes and berths), they will eventually feature in every US submarine base.

New images from Port Otago, New Zealand

Cone Fender installation at Port Otago, New Zealand

In 2010, QuayQuip designed and supplied Cone Fender systems for Port Otago in New Zealand. The available mounting area on the existing quay structure was limited, so QuayQuip took a fresh look at how to adapt a large system to a very small mounting footprint. The resulting steel sub-frame allows reversed QCN 900 fenders to be installed without costly and time-consuming upgrades to the quay face.
