Solar Solve Marine recently provided its long standing Netherlands based World Wide Distributor, Temaro BV, with 39 SOLASAFE ship blinds for installation on-board the multi-purpose offshore construction vessel OSA Goliath. Built at Drydocks World, Dubai for Singapore-based Coastline Maritime, the diesel-electric powered vessel was delivered on 24 April of this year.
Goliath is one of the largest heavy load vessels worldwide and is being used for platform reconditioning, pipe laying and to set up offshore wind power plants. At 590 ft long, 39.5 ft beam and 22,000 dwt, the vessel is equipped with a 2,000 ton crane that is necessary for it to perform its extraordinary duties. With the emerging need for offshore wind farms, the vessel is well positioned to support wind turbine installations and subsea construction support.
Scheduled for working in the Gulf of Mexico over the next few years, the need for solar heat and glare protection will be paramount and consequently the 39 SOLASAFE sunscreens were installed by TEMARO BV at the windows in the wheelhouse and crane whilst OSA Goliath was berthed in the Port of Rotterdam.
Ronald Scheffer of TEMARO, who has installed SOLASOLV Sunscreens all over Europe and was heavily involved with this particular installation, commented that this was the largest vessel he had been involved with. He was delighted because the crew were highly impressed with the installation of the sunscreens and looked forward to benefiting from them over the coming years.
Solar Solve’s Operations Director, Carl Johnson commented, “We have an excellent partnership with the team at Temaro BV and work very closely together on a daily basis. They appreciate the effectiveness of our products and the service we provide and in turn we appreciate the excellent service they pass on to our mutual customers. Working together we make a great team for the benefit of the end user.”
