US Navy Homeports Select Seaward Marine Fenders

Seaward International, Inc. has recently received its largest order ever for the supply of foam-filled marine fenders to the U.S. Navy.

The order was placed by Firth Construction Company of Baton Rouge, •La., who was awarded the prime construction contract from the Naval Facilities Engineering Command to supply and install the homeport fender systems.

Over 75 Sea Guard® model netless fenders, ranging in sizes from 4 by 8 feet to 8 by 16 feet, will be delivered for installation at the new U.S. Naval homeports in Ingleside, Texas, Pascagoula, Miss, and Pensacola, Fla. Included in this purchase are special high-capacity Sea Guard fenders, measuring 6 by 20 feet, which will be installed on fabricated steel used to berth aircraft carriers at the Pensacola and Ingleside locations.

The completion of this order will bring to five the number of Sea Guard fenders which have been or will be installed at Navy homeports: Eleven fenders are to be installed in Mobile, Ala., and 28 fenders are already in place at the new Navy facility in Staten Island, N.Y.
