Rolls-Royce to Design Island Offshore's New OSV

Rolls-Royce has a won a contract to design and equip a new offshore support vessel for Island Offshore, to be built by shipbuilding group Vard.

The platform support vessel is a Rolls-Royce design of type UT 776 CD, the second of this type ordered by Island Offshore this year.

The UT 776 CD is an Offshore Service Vessel for world-wide service, with tanks for all types of liquid cargo, 1000 m2 cargo deck and accommodation for over 40 people in single cabins. In addition to the vessel design, Rolls-Royce will provide engines, deck machinery, azimuth thrusters, tunnel thrusters and control systems.

Jørn Heltne, Rolls-Royce, Senior Vice President – Sales & Contract, said: “This order confirms the strong co-operation between our two companies ever since the founding of Island Offshore in 2004. Island Offshore is an ambitious owner and together we have broken technological barriers.”

This platform support vessel is designed to satisfy the general demands of the offshore industry and is the eleventh order of its kind for the Island Offshore fleet.

The new vessel will be delivered from the Vard Brevik yard in Norway in February 2015, and the hull of the vessel will be delivered from Vard Braila in Romania.

Upon delivery it will become the 26th vessel in Island Offshore’s fleet designed by Rolls-Royce.
