SS Cape Island Place Specialised Automation Commission For Solarglide Windscreen Wipers 

The Commission

The SS Cape Island ( MARAD )  place multiple orders for Solarglide’s robust electric Straightline windscreen wipers. The Solarglide Straighline windscreen wiper systems keep passengers and crew safe by maintaining clear and unhindered visibility in all weather conditions. The Straightline windscreens wipers are manufactured to the highest quality with marine grade materials.

The Solution

Typically, Solarglide supply Straight-line windscreen wipers systems and Pantagraph wiper systems with one automated master control that commands the entire wipers system, which in turn, connects to the ship or vessels internal power supply. In the case of the SS Cape Island commission, things were a little bit different. The United States Marine Administration expressed a preference for each Straight-line windscreen wiper system to be installed and operated individually, meaning each straight-line wiper could be operated separately.
