Solar Solve Marine, the UK manufacturer of anti-glare, heat rejecting roller screens and fabric roller blinds for ships has won a contract to supply 20 Solasolv screens for the bridge windows of the cruise ship 'Celebrity Millennium'.

Celebrity Millennium is owned and operated by RCCL brand Celebrity Cruises. It is 294m long and has a 2,138 passenger occupancy with almost 1,000 crew. The ship travels to destinations including Alaska and Asia and is due to have a major refit in February 2019 as part of the 'Celebrity Revolution' fleetwide modernisation project.

Solar Solve Marine says it has supplied more than 165,000 screens and roller blinds to over 17,100 ships worldwide since 1987, and all products are ISO 9001:2015 quality assured. The company’s main product line is the Solasolv range of heat rejecting, anti-glare roller screens for navigation bridge and control room windows.  The primary benefit claimed for Solasolv roller screens is to ensure safer navigation by reducing glare so electronic displays and bridge equipment are easier to read whilst providing a clear outward view without eye-strain. Solasolv sunscreens are Type Approved by Lloyd’s Register, ABS, DNV-GL and RINA. The Rolasolv product line includes fabric roller blinds and complete blackout blinds for cabins, and are Type Approved by DNV-GL in accordance with the mandatory IMO FTPC Part 7 A.563(14) Resolution.

Paul Hopkins, Sales and Marketing Executive at Solar Solve Marine said: “We are delighted to receive another significant order for a cruise ship to supply our specialist marine grade roller screens that are specifically designed and Type Approved to be installed on ships sailing all over the world. Having just received this initial order we are already in discussions to supply a second order to the sister vessel, Celebrity Summit.”
