Norway: Rolls-Royce to Design Power Propulsion Systems for Two Offshore Service Vessels

Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, has won a £15 million order, to provide the design, integrated power and propulsion systems and deck equipment for two offshore service vessels for ship owner Island Offshore. The contract includes an option for an additional four vessels.

Per Kristian Furø, Rolls-Royce, General Sales Manager – Offshore said: “We have worked very closely with Island Offshore over the last decade to develop a wide range of advanced and highly efficient platform supply and subsea service vessels. This long standing relationship has resulted in 40 vessels being delivered or under construction.”

The latest Rolls-Royce UT 717 CD platform supply vessels ordered by Island Offshore will feature an integrated power and propulsion system incorporating main engines, controllable pitch propellers, bow and stern thrusters, deck machinery and an automation and control system.

The vessels will be built at the STX OSV yard in Brevik, Norway and will be ready for delivery in the latter half of 2013.

In addition to this latest order, Island Offshore has a further three UT vessels under construction to be delivered from the Brevik yard. This includes two highly efficient LNG powered offshore vessels.
