ShibataFenderTeam (SFT), dutch marine company, has engineered an optimised design solution with 80 fenders for the new Lekki Port in Nigeria.
Lekki Port aims to significantly increase the container throughput capacity of the western Nigerian port complex.
According to ShibataFenderTeam, working in close partnership with the contractor, who was awarded the construction of the new infrastructure, their in-house team of engineers performed a deep and thorough review of the project specifications.
In total, the new Lekki Port will have 41 sets of SPC Cone Fenders (SPC 1600 G1.8) with closed box panel, 5100 mm in height to accommodate a wide range of tides, and 38 sets of V Fenders, also known as Arch Fenders, SX 500 (L 1500 mm, G2.1). The order scope included also 3 sets of Corner V Fenders(250 x 750 + 750 mm) for the tug boat berth.
Moreover, the Lekki Port project marks, along with the Tema Port in Ghana, another great reference for a large container terminal in West Africa, where SFT has a consolidated presence.
