Engineering company Rolls-Royce has secured an extensive supply order from Turkish builder Sanmar Shipyards.

Under the deal, Rolls-Royce will provide the shipbuilder with propulsion and deck equipment for tugboats, based on new designs developed by Canadian naval architects Robert Allan.

The scope of the deal includes 42 Rolls-Royce US 205/255 azimuth thrusters for 21 harbour/terminal/escort tugs in the 60, 70 and 80 tonne bollard-pull range and high-pressure hydraulic towing winched for the 80 tonne models.

The framework agreement signed between the parties would see Rolls-Royce supply standard specification products for the vessels being built by Sanmar across a two-to-three-year period. The agreement takes into account options on the standard product specification to cover specific demands and operational requirements.

“Rather than having to create new supply agreement for each newbuild project, this new arrangement allows to effectively have a constant supply of Rolls-Royce equipment that we can adapt to meet our customers’ requirements. This means we can potentially reduce build time and streamline the building process,” Ali Gurun, Sanmar Projects Director and Member of the Board, said.
