Grimsby River Terminal

Increasingly these days, large scale engineering projects are sourced overseas where the draw of cheap materials and labour seem the best option. At DockGuard we are proud to be involved with a truly British project for Torsion Arm Fender Systems worth over £1.4M. DockGuard have worked extensively with British main contractor Graham Construction Ltd and civil engineering consultant Mouchel Ltd to design a unique Fender and Pile support system for the new Finger Pier at Grimsby.

       
      
Fabrication for the pile sleeves and X-bracing was undertaken in British yards. Great British engineering from concept design through fabrication and installation is exciting for us to be involved with. DockGuard supply is now complete and the new terminal is operational with no difficulties encountered throughout the entire supply of eighteen double Torsion Arm fenders including both 1000H and 1100H Cone Fenders, 100T Mooring Bollards, 100T double and quadruple quick release hooks, free standing capstans and 400x400 Hollow D Fenders.


Cirkewwa Ferry Terminal

DockGuard were successful in the European funded tender for the design, supply and installation of heavy duty fender systems at the Cirkewwa to Gozo Ferry Terminal upgrade in Malta. Typically for DockGuard our robust approach to fender design with many clever features backed by thorough calculations and a proven track record satisfied the Maltese Government Department for Transport and secured us the order in a highly competitive market. 

       

       

Once the contract was awarded we manufactured, shipped, assembled and installed the nine double 1250H Cell Fender systems within 16 weeks. DockGuard undertook the entire installation including drilling the existing dolphins and mounting the fenders.

 

Rosyth Naval Dockyard

DockGuard were chosen once again to supply fenders to Babcock Rosyth as part of their ongoing programme for the Astute class submarines. This time we provided a complete turn key solution allowing our client to concentrate on his work knowing his fenders were in experienced hands.

Our contract was to supply and install two Ø3.3m x 10.6m Hydro-Pneumatic Submarine fenders including the counterweight and mooring lines at a suitable position for their immediate use. Assembling our team of experts on site for two days the job was completed promptly, efficiently and with a satisfied customer.
