DuroWipers secures fishing vessel contracts
DuroWipers has secured new contracts to supply wiper systems to two fishing vessels courtesy of its long-standing customer, Macduff Shipyards.
The yard has ordered a single Class 90 twin drive pantograph wiper system for a 15m crabber belonging to Scrabster Seafoods. DuroWipers will also supply three Class 50 twin drive pantograph wipers for a newbuild 14m twin screw catamaran workboat being built for Scottish Sea Farms.
“We chose DuroWipers for these two projects because we know that their wipers are durable, trouble free and very reasonably priced,” said Roy Morrison of Macduff Shipyards.
“DuroWipers were ideally suited to these two projects as the units are reasonably compact which is perfect for smaller vessels and we know that they’re long lasting and will give a trouble-free service in the harsh environment that they’re exposed too,” he added.
Sustainable and robust
Noel Gould, managing director at DuroWipers, highlighted the company’s commitment to sustainability. “The fact that DuroWipers pantographs are so long-lasting means there is no need for any spares or maintenance costs, a greener choice in terms of the lifetime of the vessel,” he said.
DuroWipers pantographs are specified on the UK Shannon Class Lifeboat where the conditions they encounter are extremely treacherous and the vessel operator needs clear vision at all times. The Class 90 pantograph uses the 80Nm Bosch motor with a smaller transfer box than the Class 80, for applications where space is limited.
