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 1,500m 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 it carries.
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 dispatched 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.”
