UK: Solar Solve to Supply SOLASOLV Roller Screens for HMAS Canberra

In August, UK based Solar Solve Marine received an order from their Australian Distributor to supply 49 SOLASOLV® roller screens for the vessel HMAS Canberra.

The vessel is the first of two new Landing Helicopter Docks which are being built for the Royal Australian Navy. Construction of the vessel began in 2011 and the hull was built by Navantia in Spain before being transported to BAE Systems Australia in late 2012 for completion. This vessel will be the largest ship ever operated by the Royal Australian Navy.

SOLASOLV® anti glare screens are installed at the windows of all types of ships, rigs and cranes worldwide. They are an essential safety product, effectively rejecting up to 87% of heat and up to 93% of glare from the sun. Eye-strain is significantly reduced ensuring visual displays are easier to read, and a clear outward view is maintained for safer navigation and marine operations. A more ambient room temperature means that the crew are less prone to fatigue which can lead to human error. Suitable for newbuilds and retrofits, SOLASOLV® screens are guaranteed for 7 years and Type Approved by Lloyds, ABS and DNV.

Paul Hopkins, Sales & Marketing Executive commented, “We are delighted to be awarded such a prestigious contract. SOLASOLV® sunscreens are installed on many foreign naval vessels throughout the world and we must thank our Australian Distributor and in particular Scott Dalziel who is based in Port Adelaide for all of his efforts in securing this order.”
