South Shields, UK, based Solar Solve Marine reports that it has recently received several orders from ferry operator DFDS for its Type Approved roller blinds and roller sunscreens.

The companies have frequently worked together, as Solar Solve is based on the River Tyne, near to one of DFDS' ferry ports, from which DFDS ships depart for Amsterdam.

Paul Hopkins, Solar Solve’s Sales and Marketing Executive said: “Over a 3 month period we received substantial orders for cruise ferry MS Princess Seaways from the company. In total we supplied and installed 116 Dimmlite roller blinds to windows in the crew accommodation and 25 of Solar Solve’s Type Approved Brand leading Solasafe roller sunscreens to the windows on the navigation bridge. Throughout the whole process of preparing the quotation, during the installation and after completing the work we regularly received positive feedback from DFDS personnel relating to the quality of our products and service. I was personally involved with all aspects of the order, including some of the installation and it was a nice job to be associated with and for a friendly company.”

Hopkins reports that DFDS staff were just as complimentary about his company's products.

During the same period Solar Solve supplied orders totalling another 116 roller blinds and sunscreens to DFDS for various other vessels including DFDS Delft, DFDS Dunkerque and King Seaways.
