Wynn Marine Gets RFA Contract

Wednesday, April 03, 2002
Wynn Marine has been awarded the contract to supply the Window Wiper Equipment for two Royal Fleet Auxiliary (RFA) landing ships currently under construction at the Swan Hunter shipyard in the UK. The ships are expected to enter service in 2004 and 2005. Wynn will be supplying 30 of its new Type D Mk III Straight Line Wipers to each new landing ship, which will be controlled by the Series 3000 Network Control System. The Type D MKIII is the latest heavy duty externally mounted motor straight-line wiper development from Wynn’s Ocean Range.

The Series 3000 Network Controller is modular, allowing flexibility to manage a fully functional window wiper system with integral wash and air purge. The system also controls wiper and bridge window heaters from a conveniently positioned control location. The new landing ships, RFA Lyme Bay and RFA Largs Bay displace up to 16,000 tonnes and will be operated by the RFA to provide logistical back-up for HMS Albion and HMS Bulwark. As second wave vessels in an amphibious assault, they will carry a wide range of vehicles, stores and up to 350 back-up troops. The vessels are being built under the £300 million Alternative Landing Ships Logistics (ALSL) project, and are part of a package designed to significantly improve the ability of the UK’s Armed Forces to deploy quickly around the globe.
