New Rolls-Royce Vessels for Island Offshore

Sunday, December 27, 2009

Rolls-Royce has won an order to design and equip two diesel electric UT 776 CD offshore service vessels for leading offshore ship owner, Island Offshore. The vessels are to be built by STX Europe for delivery in 2011 and 2012. The total value of the Rolls-Royce contract is around $31.9m.

These new generation supply vessels will be delivered with a fully-integrated equipment system from Rolls-Royce, including engines, propulsion systems and deck machinery. The order also includes motion control systems, thrusters and automation systems.

The vessels will each measure 305.1 ft in length and 65.6 ft wide and the deck area will be more than 3,281 sq ft. The vessels will be equipped for oil-spill response, and the UT 776 CD design meets present and foreseen regulations.

Earlier this year Island Offshore took delivery of two vessels of the same Rolls-Royce UT 776 CD design - Island Chieftain and Island Commander – and has a wide range of Rolls-Royce designed vessels in its fleet. Over 650 Rolls-Royce designed UT vessels are either in service or under construction around the world.
