Tek-Tanks were recently asked by Sam Proctor from the Proctor Group to manufacture a fridge box for his customer who turned out to be Paul and Rachel Chandler of Somali pirate fame.
They are planning to continue their voyage this year with a Tek-Tanks fridge liner on board.
The couple spent 388 days in captivity after armed raiders boarded their 38ft yacht, Lynn Rival, as they sailed from the Seychelles to Tanzania in notoriously dangerous waters.
The retired pair, from Tunbridge Wells in Kent, were released in November 2010 after a ransom was paid.
The Proctor Group provided a space age insulation for the box called Spacetherm which is available in thicknesses ranging from 5 to 40mm. For more information please visit http://www.proctorgroup.com/
The whole unit was then covered in a membrane to contain the insulation by Aim Developments who can be found at http://www.aim-developments.co.uk/
We wish the Chandler’s good luck on the remainder of their voyage.
