Solar Solve Marine has just won its biggest ever order in it’s 33 year history.
The order, worth $140,000 USD is from the Cochin Shipyard in India which is currently building numerous PSVs for various owners of the popular UT-755 L design, designed by Rolls-Royce.
Twelve ships will be equipped with 27 SOLASAFE® anti glare roller screens each at the windows on the navigation bridge – a total of over 300 screens.
The SOLASAFE® screens will be manufactured using grey SOLASOLV® solar film.
When in use the screens will reject up to 91 per cent of the sun’s glare,
65 per cent of its heat and 99 per cent of the UV radiation that would otherwise pass through the windows.
As well as offering extensive protection to ship’s personnel by creating a safer working environment, the SOLASAFE® screens also generate a worthwhile saving in energy costs together with a beneficial reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
The screens can be fully retracted in seconds to help visibility in poor conditions.
Carl Johnson, Solar Solve Marine’s Operations Director, worked closely with colleagues at the Cochin Shipyard to win the order. Carl says “Although Solar Solve’s screens were specified, we had to comply with many conditions to get the order. The whole Solar Solve team worked very hard to make sure the customer got exactly what they wanted, on time and to exact specification.”
“At $140,000 USD this is Solar Solve’s biggest single order to date and confirms our position as the worlds leading brand of anti glare blinds for ships.”
