The Port of Tyne have fitted SOLASAFE® sunscreens in the operators cab of their new £6 million Liebherr Container Gantry Crane. The furnishing of roller screens in the cabin will provide crane operators with a safer, glare-free view of the operational area. The 70 metre 750 tonne crane has a 37 metres outreach capacity and can handle 13 containers across the deck of a vessel.
Solar Solve have already furnished anti-glare sunscreens on the other cranes at the Port of Tyne. This shows the safety benefits of Solar Solve’s Anti-Glare sunscreens are valued by safety conscious port operators.
Julie Lightfoot MBE, Solar Solve’s Managing Director, commented “The Port of Tyne strive to provide the safest operational environment possible. Solar Solve’s anti-glare sunscreens help them to achieve this by reducing glare in crane operator’s cabs. Reduced glare can also reduce fatigue which also helps improve safety”.
Julie added “The crane is 70 metres high which shows that nothing is too high to be solar solved!”.
