At the end of September, UK based Solar Solve Marine secured orders to supply 2 shipsets of SOLASOLV® anti-glare, heat rejecting roller screens to Clearwater Seafoods in Canada. The company’s vessel the Belle Carnell is the most technologically advanced shellfish harvester in the world and the Artic Endurance is a clam fishing vessel.

Paul Hopkins, Solar Solve’s Sales & Marketing Executive commented, “It was great news to receive these orders to supply SOLASOLV® sunscreens to two of Clearwater’s vessels. They have ordered the screens to reduce glare and reflection on the bridge whilst the vessels operate at sea in artic conditions where the sun can lie low in the sky and be problematic when navigating. ”
