New fenders for jetty at Sullom Voe Harbour

Major work has been completed on one of the four jetties at Sullom Voe Harbour. 

This week two new fenders have been installed to jetty number two, accommodating vessels transporting oil from the Sullom Voe Terminal. Four new rubber QCN 1800 cone fender systems, each weighing approximately 18 tonnes, have been fitted to the jetty as part of the life extension work on the harbour infrastructure that was originally built in the late 1970’s.   

The fenders used for the jetty at Sullom Voe Harbour are made in our state-of-the-art production facility in Tianjin, China.

Andrew Inkster, Team Leader – Port Engineering, Shetland Islands Council, said: “I’m pleased that this major piece of planned maintenance extending the working life of the jetties has been completed safely and successfully, with minimal disruption to harbour traffic.  This critical infrastructure update will ensure that the terminal can continue to export crude oil for many years to come.”
