Solar Solve Marine, a UK- based manufacturer of SOLASOLV® anti-glare, heat rejecting roller screens gets fitting orders for 3 Maersk vessels.

SOLASOLV® roller screens are installed at the windows of ships, rigs and cranes of all types and sizes around the world. They reject up to 87% of the sun’s heat and up to 93% of the sun’s glare, so eye-strain is significantly reduced and computer displays are easier to read. A clear outward view is also maintained for safer operations. With a lower room temperature the crew have a more comfortable working environment and are less prone to fatigue which can lead to human error. Suitable for newbuilds and retrofits, they are Type Approved by Lloyds, ABS and DNV.

At the end of September an order for 28 SOLASAFE® roller screens was received for the Maersk Fetcher, a supply ship. Then at the beginning of November an order for a SOLASAFE® roller screen was received for the Maersk Missouri, a container ship. At the end of November a third order for 6 SOLASAFE® sunscreens was received for the Maersk Endurer, a jack-up drill rig.

Paul Hopkins, Solar Solve’s Sales and Marketing Executive commented, “ We are delighted that a large and diverse owner such a Maersk continues to order SOLASOLV® sunscreens their ships and rigs. SOLASOLV® are proven to be of great benefit to crews when they are working in hot and sunny weather conditions which is why they are so popular. ”
