Wynn to Supply Offshore Patrol Vessels

Monday, April 22, 2002
Wynn marine has won the contract to supply the window wiper systems for three offshore patrol vessels (FOPV) currently under construction at Vosper Thornycroft, UK. The contract is to supply 13 Type C Straight Line Wipers to each vessel, which will be operated by the Wynn Series 2000 Controller. The Type C offers the most advanced design of linear action window wiping systems available and is one of the most popular systems in the world for providing clear viewing areas for commercial, naval and fishing vessels. Construction of the first of the three River Class FOPV's commenced at Vosper Thornycroft's Woolston shipyard in May 2001 and the first vessel will enter service with the Royal Navy in November 2002. The new vessels will replace the five existing Island class vessels currently used for Fishery Protection duties and will fulfill a wide variety of offshore policing, patrol and military support roles. Tony Parker, Sales and Marketing Manager at Wynn said "the improved seakeeping qualities of the new vessels will render them available for patrol duties up to 320 days a year, compared to 157 days for the Island Class ships. Therefore it was vital that all the equipment fitted was to the highest standard available."
