February 2019.

Receiving huge support and positive feedback from last year’s Fender Foundation Seminar participants, both Suprabakti and ShibataFenderTeam commit to continue sharing knowledge and educating users about the importance of design and compounding in fender systems, by organizing In-House training.

With In-House training, we aim to reach more participants, especially the engineers which most of their work dealt with designs, and end users. It is important for end users to know the basic and factors that should be considered in selecting suitable fender.

In February, we visited the engineering department of PT. Semen Indonesia in Gresik and PT. Terminal Petikemas Surabaya. Again, we emphasize on the importance of design and fender selection to attain the optimum function of fender systems – which to protect jetty structure as well as the vessel. With both companies role as owners, most of the discussion are about maintenance. Considering the existing fender condition and design, SFT’s representative, Chris Millwood points about the vital role of weight and tension chains, to support the whole fender systems.

We wish for the success of both companies, and hope we can support them in the future.

Feel free to contact us if you have any question.
