Handymax Berth, Canada




British Columbia, Canada


Close to the border with Alaska in Canada’s British Columbia, Stewart World Port has completed an entire berth for bulk cargo vessels using QuayQuip’s fenders.

QuayQuip’s designed and supplied a fender system combined with a hanging support frame which only connects to the front edge and underside of the deck structure. The frame not only supports the fender but also all chain jewellery which consists of tension, weight and shear chains in line with best practice for whole life considerations. QuayQuip worked extensively with Stewart World Port and their appointed consultant (CWA of Vancouver) in defining the fender system. The QCL1700 cell fenders were positioned at an elevation within the tidal zone so full venting in the hanging frame eliminated the adverse effects of water filling the fender cavity.
