Solar Solve Marine, manufacturer of the Solasolv brand of anti-glare, heat-rejecting roller screens for navigation bridge windows, has just received and order from Svitzer for its fleet of tugs.
The latest order is for the tug ‘Stanlow’ to take the total number of vessels supplied to seven. In the last couple of years Solar Solve has received sunscreen orders from Svitzer for the ‘Harty’, ‘Warden’, ‘Victory’, ‘Morag’, ‘Brenda’ and ‘Bentley’. All of the vessels were working in UK waters when the screens were ordered. ‘Stanlow’ was built in Singapore in 2006 and works on the River Mersey, UK, primarily serving tankers by escorting them to and from Shell’s Tranmere oil terminal.
Solasolv roller screens use a shade film to protect bridge crew against the effects of sun glare and solar gain while offering a 100 percent clear outside view. The film is also tinted, which significantly reduces eye-strain, ensuring modern bridge equipment displays are easier to read. An aluminium layer embedded inside the film rejects heat, creating a cooler, more comfortable working environment for crew.
