Rolls-Royce to Design and Equip Atlantic Offshor’s OSV (Norway)

UK's Rolls-Royce to Provide Design and Equipment for Atlantic Offshor's OSV

Rolls-Royce, the global power system company, has secured a £6 million contract to provide an integrated design, power & propulsion and equipment systems package for an offshore supply vessel to be built at Norwegian ship yard Simek AS for ship owner Atlantic Offshore.

The vessel is a Rolls-Royce UT 755 LC design and will be equipped with main engines, propulsion system, steering gear, rudder, deck machinery, bulk handling equipment as well as control and automation systems.

Magne Hjelle, Rolls-Royce, Sales Manager said: “We are delighted to sign yet another contract with Simek AS. This underscores our position as the market leader in high specification offshore vessels, and showcases our world-class capability to deliver fully integrated ship design, power & propulsion and equipment packages.”

The vessel will undertake transport, supply and service duties between onshore supply bases and offshore drilling sites. The deck area is arranged for transporting pipes and containers while tanks below deck are used to transport fluids including water, oil, mud and brine. The vessel will have accommodation for a crew of thirty people.

Due to its reduced fuel consumption, low noise and vibration level and good supply capacity, the UT 755 design has become the world’s most popular offshore supply and service vessel, with over 180 delivered or on order. This order is the 24th Rolls-Royce designed vessel to be built at Simek AS. The vessel is expected to be delivered in summer 2013.
