Offshore Support Vessel ‘Aureus’ Orders SOLASOLV® Roller Screens
At the beginning of August the owners of ‘AUREUS’ confirmed an order for 50 SOLASOLV ® roller screens for delivery to the UAE. The ‘AUREUS’ is a multipurpose worldwide offshore construction, maintenance and diving support vessel built in 2009.
The screens are to be installed at both the forward and aft windows on the bridge whilst the vessel is dynamically positioned at sea performing fixed location operations. The vessel has an operating capacity down to 1,500 m water depth and can accommodate up to 120 personnel. It is also Special Purpose Ships Code (SPS) compliant, which provides an appropriate level of safety for this type of ship and the persons carried.
Since 1987 Solar Solve Marine has supplied more than 181,940 screens and roller blinds to over 18,900 vessels worldwide, and all products are ISO 9001:2015 quality assured. The company’s main product line is the well-known SOLASOLV ® range of heat rejecting, anti-glare roller screens for navigation and control room windows.
The primary benefit of SOLASOLV ® roller screens is to ensure safer navigation by reducing glare and reflection on display screens and bridge equipment so they are easier to read, and also to provide a clear outward view without eye-strain.
Paul Hopkins, Sales and Marketing Executive for Solar Solve commented, “We are delighted to receive yet another order from a new client, this time based in the UAE. The order has now been manufactured and sent out so the crew can install the screens whilst the vessel works at sea. Despite the global pandemic we are noticing a recovery in the offshore sector now that the price of crude oil is rising again which is good news all round.”
