Top choice wipers for the fishing market

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.”

Green choice

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.

Noel Gould, MD at DuroWipers, added: “Our customers are buying into the concept that buying our wipers is also making the right choice for the environment.”

“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.”

Robust

DuroWipers prides itself on manufacturing top quality products that are not only sustainable, but also the most robust on the market.

Its 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.

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.

While the Class 50 pantograph is the smallest in DuroWipers range and is also ideal for applications where space is at a premium.

DuroWipers offers a ten-year guarantee on its wipers for the RNLI and a lifetime guarantee on its products to the Royal Navy. For commercial operators it offers a free warranty for three years, above and beyond the usual 12-month standard.

Live demo

DuroWipers will be at the European commercial marine exhibition again this year showcasing a live demo of its wide range of pantograph systems on stand PY115.
