Vessel sizes are increasing and impacting both new and existing structures and their associated fender system. Gerwick performs berthing analyses and fender system designs that provide cost-effective solutions for meeting berth operations.
Our staff is actively involved in development and refinement of regulations related to the safe mooring and berthing of vessels.
We work with owners and vessel operators to provide solutions that result in the least impact to existing operations and meet vessel operating restrictions. Our experience with vessel operations and constraints coupled with assessment of existing and new structure capacities lead to overall lower costs and safer working environments. We develop solutions that reduce cost and risk for the owner and vessel operator.
