SafeSTS and Trelleborg pool expertise

Jun 25 2021

SafeSTS Transfer Technology Limited (SafeTTL), a specialist provider of market-leading hardware and software solutions, which facilitate the secure transfer of oil and derivatives between vessels, has been appointed as a UK distributor of Trelleborg’s pneumatic fenders.

This development is a logical extension of SafeSTS’ core activity as a globally-recognised pioneer in the provision of ship-to-ship transfer services to oil majors and traders.


Trelleborg’s ISO17357-1:2014 compliant pneumatic fenders are supplied fully tested and meet PIANC 2002 guidelines.


Backed by over 100 years of experience in polymer technology, Trelleborg’s smarter approach to R&D, manufacturing, testing and stringent quality control, ensures the supply of premium quality fenders.


Pneumatic fenders are ideal for permanent or semi-permanent port operations, particularly in challenging conditions such as large tidal ranges, as well as for offshore ship-to-ship transfers.    


Via this agreement, the new SafeTTL division now has access to a significant worldwide stock of floating fenders in a range of sizes from 0.5m to 6m in diameter.  When combined with the existing SafeSTS fleet of fenders and Oil, LPG and LNG transfer hoses, which are also offered for sale or rental, the business is now in a position to support clients with a much broader scope of offshore, nearshore and in-harbour berthing and transfer challenges.


SafeSTS has a policy of continuous improvement and by extending their services in this way, the company will be able to continually renew its STS assets and maintain a low age profile for their global inventory of fenders.


Offering more than simple product supply, its team of master mariners are able to consult upon best practice and is supplemented by a team of marine engineers who travel worldwide to assist with on-site deployment and / or maintenance of client assets, whether rented or purchased.
