Rolls-Royce has won $140m of business on its largest ever offshore marine contract, taking the total order value to $310m.
In June 2007, the company announced an $166m million contract to deliver designs and equipment for six new Rolls-Royce offshore
service vessels to Nordcapital, which will be operated on their behalf by OSM Schiffahrt. The new order win covers a further four ships.
The vessels - designed by Rolls-Royce and incorporating a range of its marine equipment
, including diesel engines, deck machinery
, thrusters and dynamic positioning systems will be built by the Korean yard Sekwang.
The four UT 786 CD deep water anchor handling vessels are Rolls-Royce UT-Design ships which have been highly successful in the commercial shipbuilding market, with over 500 vessels built since the mid 1970s and around 100 currently on order.
