Offshore vessell

Seawork International- Stand A243, 16-18 June 2015, Southampton ABP Port


Advanced Insulation took its stance  Stand A243 at the Seawork International exhibition 16-18 June 2015 and promoted its Manuplas range of marine buoys and fender systems.

The Manuplas name has a long association with the design, manufacture and supply of marine products – such as modular bow fender systems for offshore wind farm service vessels – to ports, harbours, navies, boat builders and vessel operators around the world.

Commenting for Advanced Insulation, Guy Downie, head of sales for its Manuplas buoyancy products says: “This is a really exciting year to be attending Seawork as we have so much to tell the market. Firstly, there’s the news and expansion plans regarding Advanced Insulation’s acquisition of Manuplas.  Secondly, there’s the on-going research that has gone into developing leading concepts for lightweight fender solutions.”

This research and development has seen the company develop and manufacture high-performance products, incorporating physically cross-linked polyethylene foams which, to increase abrasion and tear resistance, are sprayed in a unique protective marine-grade polyurethane coating that allows for the incorporation of a nylon or Kevlar reinforcement in the skin.

Additionally,Advanced Insulation will also use the stand to promote its new modular, foamless polyurethane fenders, which deliver energy absorption properties through the design of the internal structure. Also on the stand will be the Manuplas range of cast boat and foam-filled floating fenders; and portfolio of mooring,navigation, marker, anchor pendant, chain support and modular buoys.
