“Signed, sealed and delivered” in just 21 days!
QuayQuip’s first major installation in China was a real test of teamwork and customer service. Given just 21 days to design the fenders, manufacture, inspect, test, deliver and install was a real challenge. Not only did QuayQuip achieve everything the client wanted, the reward was a second contract, this time needed in just 20 days!
Stage 1 required six fender sets – a 5.8×3.0 metre panel each with 8 QME1000 elements, virgin UHMW-PE face pads, chain assemblies and anchors. A total of 75 production drawings were generated in 3 days to allow fast track production to begin.
Stage 2 was a further three fender sets of a completely new design with a 7.0×1.6 metre panel and 4 QME800 elements. Space limitations required QuayQuip’s innovative ‘deep-box’ fender frame, an especially compact and strong construction.
Fenders were fitted to modular caissons which were towed to site, sunk in position and then rock filled before pouring a concrete deck slab. The result was a new port structure ready in record time.
