Seaward International Awarded Fourth Fendeir Contract By U.S. Navy
Seaward International, Inc., Falls Church, Va., is supplying an additional 1,342 small 2- by 3-foot Sea Cushion® fenders to the U.S.
Navy. This new contract, valued at over $600,000, is Seaward's fourth contract since 1978 to supply small Navy fenders.
The fenders were procured under new specifications for fenders that are lighter in weight and provide higher performance than the old style Navy fenders. This new specification is based on the proven design of Seaward's Sea Cushion fenders that are commercially a v a i l a b l e worldwide.
Procured under the same stock number as the old style Navy f e n d e r s , 1H 2040-00-807-4197, these new 70-pound fenders can be handled by one man and are non-marking gray in color.
Under the current contract, the Navy requires delivery of 100 fenders per month. Seaward has been way ahead of schedule since it began delivery in July and 817 fenders have been delivered to date. The Navy has the option to double the quantity under this contract.
Seaward International has supplied fenders to the Navy ranging in size from 16 by 36 inches to 8 by 16 feet. When the current contract expires in November 1982, Seaward will have delivered over 3,960 fenders to the Navy.
