Fendercare Marine, the world’s leading marine products and services supplier, has announced the signing of a major new contract with Defence Support Group (DSG). The three-year frame agreement is for UK wide sub-contracted general engineering services for blast-cleaning on items such as AM2 Helipad matting.
The DSG provides assembly, maintenance, repair, overhaul, upgrade and support services for the UK Armed Forces, including current and future MOD equipment acquisition and support strategies.
The wet blast facilities are provided through Fendercare Marine’s subsidiary company Blastgreen, who design, develop and manufacture wet blast cleaning equipment for sale, hire and service. Their wet blast machines do not use chemicals or toxic abrasives but instead use a combination of water and natural, environmentally friendly media – Olivine and Garnet.
The water and media are combined and applied in minimum quantities ensuring the blast jet is easily contained, with a minimal dust cloud and very little waste.
Brett Ward, Defence Project Sales Manager, said: “Following on from our recent contract agreement with BAE Systems for equipment to supply their OPVs, this just demonstrates the breadth of quality products and services that Fendercare Marine can deliver.”
