New Rolls-Royce OSV for Canada

Monday, May 11, 2009

Rolls-Royce has won an order to design and equip a UT 755LN offshore support vessel with an integrated power, propulsion and motion control system, for use in the Canadian oil and gas market.

Atlantic Towing Limited (Canada) has entered a long term charter with the Canadian oil and gas company EnCana Corporation for the vessel which will be built at the Halifax Shipyard in Nova Scotia. It will operate in the Deep Panuk field off the Canadian east coast. In addition to the ship design, Rolls-Royce will deliver a fully integrated equipment system. This includes diesel engines, propellers, reduction gears, tunnel thrusters, azimuth thrusters, steering gear, rudders, switchboards, automation and controls and deck machinery. The total value of the Rolls-Royce contract is around $10.5m.

The multipurpose vessel is specially designed to meet the oil company’s requirements, with extra capacity for transporting methanol. Its design will meet the stand-by vessel class requirements, incorporating environmental and safety features necessary for offshore operation, such as oil recovery system, dynamic positioning and fire extinguishing water cannons.

UT 755 is popular with customers due to its good sea keeping capabilities, low fuel consumption, low noise and vibration, excellent loading capacity and versatility. Over 650 Rolls-Royce designed UT vessels are either in service or under construction around the world.
