South Shields based Solar Solve Marine recently dispatched a consignment of 49 of its Type Approved, SOLASAFE anti-glare roller sunscreens to Carnival UK in Southampton.  They were to replace the old screens installed at the navigation bridge windows of P&O cruise ship MV AURORA, that was built in Pappenburg, Germany in 2000.

At 270mts long, MV AURORA is P&O’s smallest ship.  It can accommodate 1,874 adults-only passengers and 860 crew with a variety of cruise itineraries scheduled.

John Lightfoot, MBE, chairman of Solar Solve commented, “The vessel’s 2022 itinerary includes a 99 night world cruise that will almost certainly involve many hot and sunny days.  However, the personnel who work on the navigation bridge will be able to create a safer and more comfortable working environment, simply by lowering the SOLASAFE roller sunscreens, so that they are protected from the solar glare, heat and uv radiation.


Most of the 49 navigation bridge windows of P&O cruise ship MV AURORA can be seen in this photo.
The sun reflecting in the bridge windows helps to highlight the problems that the navigation personnel have to endure on sunny days. It’s not surprising that they tend to be great fans and supporters of anti-glare roller sunshades, like Solar Solve’s SOLASAFE products.
