ABOUT RG SEASIGHT FENDERS
RG Seasight Fenders were founded in 2010 by the two Danish companies RG Rom Gummi, a rubber company, and the shipyard Hvide Sande Shipyard.
In 2008 the first fenders were developed in a close cooperation between the two companies. The cooperation facilitated the later establishment of RG Seasight Fenders which today is the national and international leading supplier of rubber fenders to crew transferring vessels for the offshore industry.
The two companies brought such a broad variety of competences into RG Seasight Fenders that the company has more knowledge about manufacturing hot vulcanized rubber fenders than any other company in the market.
Standard fender systems and custom made solutions
Hvide Sande Shipyard have built and repaired different types of vessels for more than three generations including crew transferring vessels resulting in an extensive know-how. Whilst RG Rom Gummi have more than 30 years of experience with rubber products for the fishing industry and are contributing with a purpose-made rubber of an unique quality suited for marine use.
RG Seasight Fenders produce both standard fender systems and custom made solutions. Regardless of type, all our solutions can be adjusted to the particular vessel. Furthermore, we are continuously developing our fender system’s ability to cope with rougher and rougher weather at sea without compromising the safety on board.
RG Seasight Fenders are mainly known for superior bow fenders, but we are more than that. We make complete solutions for the whole vessel from bow to stern, adjusting every fender and fender type to the individual vessel and its working conditions. Amongst others we provide several options for corner and side fenders which can all be made from anything from rubber to lightweight foam filled Polyurethane. This way we can keep the weight down without compromising the usability of the fender.
RG Seasight Fenders ensure the most days at sea, as the bow fenders are made from hot vulcanized quality rubber for maritime use which makes them highly resilient to effects from the ocean water, ozone and ultraviolet sun rays. This means that the fenders in spite of harsh conditions have a long durability. Moreover the rubber generates an incredibly high friction; greater than most other fenders in the market.
Easy to modify
The rubber fenders also provide the possibility of repairing or modifying the fender. As all boat landings aren’t the same, we have made our fenders easy to modify. That way the crew transferring vessel can be transformed from one wind farm to another in short time without the need for buying a new fender.
At last but not least it is crucial that the fender fits perfectly to the vessel to secure the best performance. To achieve this we offer to visit our customers for a day or two to see the vessel in action and to identify the working conditions which give the basis for a complete solution.
The purpose of RG Seasight Fenders is to produce solid fender systems that improve the safety on board crew transferring vessels in the offshore industry - in particular the fender systems which due to their construction ensure a safe transfer of crew from vessel to wind turbine even under rough conditions.
This means fender systems that ensure the highest possible efficiency from more days at sea.
