ShibataFenderTeam supplies Cell Fender Systems for IJmuiden Sea lock


ShibataFenderTeam (SFT) has supplied 21 sets of Cell Fender Systems to the IJmuiden Sea lock after it began construction works in 2016.

The IJmuiden Sea lock was designed by SFT to allow larger ocean-going vessels and the growing range of cruise ships a safe and smooth access to the Port of Amsterdam.

During the early stages of the construction works, SFT was entrusted with the design and supply of a continuous fender-wall with the delivery 40 SPC Cone Fender Systems, each consisting of two Cone Fenders (SPC 700 G1.2) and a closed box panel (4500×4840 mm) with UHMW-PE pads.

Later, following the various design aspects of the development and to adapt to the different conditions on the in and outside of the lock, SFT supplied another 21 sets of Cell Fender Systems (CSS 1250, G1.1) with closed box panels (4500×4840 millimetres) as well as an array of passive, hinge-connected lead-in panels covering a length of 100 metres.

The overall scope of the project also included Cylindrical Fenders, PU Fenders, Bollards and customised UHMW-PE Sliding Plates.

SFT said it integrated custom-made overload stoppers into all systems, allowing for a controlled load transfer and activation of the pile structure without exceeding the rated fender deflection.

This announcement comes two months after SFT provided multiple fender systems for Tibar Bay Port, the largest infrastructure project in Timor-Leste in Southeast Asia.

More recently, SFT supplied 43 Cone Fender Systems to Freeport, Texas for its expansion project to welcome larger vessels.
