Ritec Finalists for Commercial Project of the Year at G15 Awards 19 September 2015 - Ritec International are delighted to announce that they have reached the final of the G15 Commercial Project of the Year Award.

Ritec have been recognised for treating an impressive 14,700m2 of glass aboard the P&O Cruises' new flagship, the MV Britannia.The £473m ship was launched by Her Majesty the Queen in Southampton on 10 March 2015, who praised its sophistication and use of glass. It is the largest and latest of many cruise ships to have been treated with the award-winning ClearShield Eco-System™ which upgrades glass to ClearShield Eco-Glass™ -providing protection from sea spray and other corrosive elements and making it ‘easy-clean’.

The system has provided enormous benefits for P&O Cruises. Glass costs in the future will be less, as the glass can be easily cleaned and renovated instead of being replaced. Reduced cleaning and maintenance during the life-cycle of the glass will also be achieved – saving money and resources. Importantly the ship’s safety will be heightened as the bridge’s glass will be protected while at sea, especially in inclement weather, and anti-microbial properties in the glass will combat bacteria on-board.

Ritec’s application team travelled to the Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy to treat the Ship’s glass which included all the windows, sliding doors, cabin glass and other exterior glass which all needs to maintain a clean, sparkling appearance and optimal vision for greater viewing pleasure. Ritec were awarded this prestigious job because they have been, over the years, an extremely reliable and trusted partner for P&O Cruises, who chose the award-winning ClearShield Eco-System™ over competitive products due to its proven track record for over 30 years in the field for the marine sector.

This is not the company’s first Royal seal of approval either, Ritec also recently treated the Royal Princess Cruise liner and previously won the Prince of Wales Award for Innovation.

Stephen Byers, MD of Ritec International, comments:

"Ritec are delighted to have reached the final of the G15 Commercial Project of the Year Award. We are proud to have firmly established Ritec Marine Services as a key partner of P&O for glass surface treatments. We continue to grow our business with this prestigious customer and this magnificent project continues to reinforce the relationship between the two companies.

We now look forward to working with P&O on other projects where we can offer pioneering treatments for the renovation, protection and maintenance of glass.”
