Rolls-Royce $17.5m Marine Systems Deal

Monday, February 23, 2009

Rolls-Royce, a provider of marine systems, has won a $17.5m order to supply fuel-efficient maneuverability systems for four new cement carrying vessels. The vessels, due for delivery in 2011 and 2012, are the latest generation of this type of ship.

The four 16,800 dwt vessels will be operated by the Kristian Gerhard Jebsen Group (KGJS). The order includes the Promas integrated propeller and rudder system, steering gear, tunnel thrusters and deck machinery. The system also includes switchboards, automation systems and an integrated bridge. The Promas can increase propulsive efficiency by four to six percent with improved maneuverability at high and low speeds.

The vessels are being built at the Vinashin Group’s Ben Kien shipyard in Hai Phong, Vietnam.
