The Port of Rotterdam recently renovated their second Oil Port. QuayQuip-Eurotech provided a package or port equipment – fenders, fabrications, steel casting and low-friction virgin UHMW-PE face pads.
Connecting the fender beams to the existing structure was solved using special adapter brackets which allowed for variations and tolerance, creating a perfect and simple fit.
The bollards incorporated QuayQuip-Eurotech’s ‘load fuse’ technology. This is a specially designed connection between the bollard neck and baseplate. The load fuse provides a defined maximum force to help prevent structure overloads. Conventional bollards (especially cast iron types) and break-off bolts can permit excessive loads leading to structural damage.
