SOLAR SOLVE WINS BIG ORDER FROM SOUTH KOREAN DISTRIBUTOR
South Shields UK based Solar Solve Marine recently received a significant order from Samgong Co. Ltd., their World Wide Distributor based in Busan, South Korea. The requirement is to supply various quantities of their brand leading, Type Approved SOLASAFE roller sunscreens for
installation at the wheelhouse windows of 13 vessels currently under construction or scheduled for imminent construction in South Korean shipyards. Ten of the vessels are being built by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering, which is a great indicator of the builder’s continued faith in Samgong Co. and Solar Solve Marine as dependable suppliers. One of the vessels that will be delivered with SOLASAFE screens installed, is the 320,000dwt VLCC oil tanker LONDON VOYAGER which is currently being built for Maran Tankers Management (MTM).
When the screens are in use on a vessel they will protect personnel on the navigation bridge from the sun’s glare as well as its infra-red and ultra-violet radiation, creating a more comfortable and safer working environment. The benefits are widely agreed by the endusers as being very significant.
The team at Solar Solve are confident that this order, along with others from elsewhere that are on the increase, is a reliable indicator that the global marine industry is beginning to recover after so many years of decline.
