U.K. based Solar Solve Marine received two orders to supply SOLASOLV class approved roller screens from Stenships KS, a subsidiary of Rederiet Stenersen AS, headquartered in Bergen, Norway.

Rederiet Stenersen transports liquid products with 17 chemical/product tankers ranging from 17-19,000 DWT deployed in North West European Trade. In December and January the company placed two orders for the M/T Sten Suomi and M/T Sten Bothnia.

SOLASOLV antiglare screens are installed at the windows of all types of ships, rigs and cranes worldwide. They are regarded as an essential safety product, effectively rejecting up to 87% of heat and up to 93% of glare from the sun to significantly reduce eye-strain. Visual displays are easier to read and a clear outward view is maintained for safer navigation and marine operations. A more comfortable room temperature means the ships’ crew are less prone to fatigue which can cause human error. Suitable for newbuilds and retrofits, SOLASOLV screens are guaranteed for seven years and Type Approved by Lloyds, ABS and DNV.

Paul Hopkins, Sales & Marketing Executive commented, “A number of SOLASOLV screens were supplied and installed when the vessels were constructed at Jiangnan Shipyard in China in 2008. Rederiet Stenersen has been using our products for over a decade and these latest orders show that they are delighted with the performance and reliability of SOLASOLV sunscreens, as well as the good service they receive from us.”
