Fishing industry contracts for wiper specialist
DuroWipers is once again demonstrating its ability to cater for all sectors of the commercial marine market securing 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 which will retrofit an existing 15m crabber belonging to Scrabster Seafoods.
DuroWipers will also supply 3 x Class 50 twin drive pantograph wipers for a newbuild 14m twin screw catamaran workboat for a salmon farm being built for Scottish Sea Farms.
“We chose DuroWipers for these two projects because down to previous experience, 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.”
Mr Morrison said that they’re a sustainable choice too for the vessels.
“Although the wipers come with a three-year warranty as standard, having fitted DuroWipers to workboats, small fishing boats, pilot boats and harbour tugs over the years we’ve never had an occasion to use the warranty,” he said.
DuroWipers patented design transfers the power from the motor to the two spindles equally meaning both spindles drive unlike any other marine wiper on the market.
This action creates a smooth, quiet and powerful maintenance free performance lasting the lifetime of the vessel.
The Class 90 pantograph utilises the 80Nm Bosch motor with a considerably smaller transfer box than the Class 80, for applications where space is limited.
