UK-based Solar Solve Marine has recently delivered two consignments of its glare-reducing products to Cheoy Lee shipyard in Hong Kong.

Each order was for 14 of the company’s Type Approved Solarola sunscreens that are destined to be installed at the navigation bridge windows of two British owned offshore crewing and supply boats.

Both vessels were built for UK-based owners Njord Offshore Ltd. and are 22m long, 8m beam, with a depth of 1.5m and of 250 grt.

Solar Solve chairman John Lightfoot commented: “When the oil price plummeted some years ago we saw a considerable drop in the building of platform supply vessels as offshore oil production was cut back significantly.  Fortunately, at around the same time, the installation of offshore wind farms began and has continued to grow ever since.  It is a relatively new market needing small versatile, manoeuvrable vessels to ferry parts and personnel to and around the wind farms.”

“The team at Solar Solve are delighted to have won this order and are confident that, with Solarola sunscreens protecting the people who work in the wheelhouse, they will be better able to concentrate on the job-in-hand and complete their tasks with added safety.”
