The contract is worth approximately NOK 230 million. The vessels are scheduled for delivery in June/July 2006 and August/September 2006, or 2007. The vessels have the designation UT 755 L, an extended version of the well-respected UT 755 design by Rolls-Royce, which will also be a major supplier of equipment to the project. Aker Yards has in total built 52 various versions of the UT 755 design and has another 8 on order. An identical vessel was delivered from Aker Brattvaag to The Great Eastern Shipping Co. in August this year, and three more vessels have earlier been delivered to the same owner by Aker Yards. The vessels will measure 72 m in length and will have a maximum cargo capacity of 3316 tonnes. The hulls will be built by Aker Tulcea in Romania.
