We are committed to customer-centric development of our products and services – and we’re also committed to digital innovation, as evidenced by our SmartPort platform.
This commitment to digital innovation goes beyond the work we’re doing on site in global ports and terminals, though. We know there are huge opportunities to increase efficiencies across the sector in desk based work too.
That’s why we’re pleased to announce we’ve just launched a series of updates to our online fender selection tool. The updated tool encompasses a number of enhanced features, designed to allow specifiers to select and specify the most appropriate fender for their application.
In addition to an existing vessel berthing Energy Calculator and Fender Selection Tool, the tool’s new capabilities include:
- A Fender Specification Generator
- A Bollard Specification Generator
- A Fender System Selector for Ship-to-Ship Applications
The online tool allows users to ensure fender selection meets required berthing energy specifications and has been developed in accordance with PIANC guidelines and British Standards, to ensure best in class, compliant solutions. Users receive a number of fender system options, allowing them to further refine their inputs using different filters to arrive at the most appropriate solution.
