Wynn Provides Wiper System for Research Vessel
Tuesday, September 16, 2003
Recently launched fishery research vessel ‘CEFAS Endeavour’ relies on a
wiper system from Wynn Marine to ensure a clear view at all times and in
all weather conditions.
Wynn’s best selling Type D wiper system forms the basis of a reliable and
technologically advanced wiper system. The Type D is a heavy duty
externally mounted motor Straight line wiper hailing from Wynn’s Ocean
Range. It offers the most advanced design of linear wiping action
available and is acknowledged as the most durable and reliable marine
wiper in the world. Operating noise is especially low, fulfilling a
specification that the CEFAS Endeavour must achieve on board noise levels
far lower than those specified by the MCA.
Reflecting the technology focused build of the vessel, Wynn’s Series 3000
network control system has been employed to provide the wiper system’s
operating network and interface. The Series 3000 can control up to 50
separate wipers or other electrical equipment and comes in a modular
design for ease of installation, maintenance and upgrading. The CEFAS
Endeavour utilises the Series 3000 Touch Pad controller, which can be
upgraded to the fully programmable interface Touch Screen controller if
The 73m CEFAS Endeavour was built by Ferguson Shipbuilders of Port Glasgow
for owners the Scottish Department of the Environment, Food and Rural
affairs and has been in operation since March 2003. The vessel is operated
by the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science.
