Rolls-Royce Gets Offshore Vessel Contracts

Friday, January 25, 2002
Rolls-Royce has won contracts worth $76 million to supply design and equipment packages for nine offshore service vessels which will be built in four different shipyards for owners in Brazil, France, Norway and the U.S. The ship designs and packages of Rolls-Royce equipment will be supplied in 2002 and 2003, and the shipyards, located in Brazil, Denmark and Norway are scheduled to deliver the vessels in 2003 and 2004. There are currently 71 offshore service vessels of the type UT-Design from Rolls Royce on order or under construction around the world. Five of the latest orders are for the popular UT 755 supply vessel. The Aker Promar yard in Brazil will build two; one for Edison Chouest Offshore and one for Tidewater, while Orskov Christensen’s Staalskibsvaerft in Denmark will construct a UT755L for the French company, SURF. This Danish yard has also won a contract to build a UT722-T offshore-going tug for Unie Redding-en Sleepdienst in Belgium. The 20,000 hp Rolls-Royce design vessel has a design bollard pull of about 210 tonnes and will be the most powerful vessel the yard has built to date. Delivery is scheduled for January 2003.

Three examples of the UT722 design are also on order at Fels-Setal in Brazil for Delba Maritima S.A., which is a company jointly owned by Bourbon Maritime in France and Commercial Perfuradora Delba Daiana Ltda in Brazil. Two of these vessels will be 75.6m long type UT722 and the third a 2-metre longer UT722L . All will have complete Rolls-Royce integrated ship system packages, including design, main engines, propellers, rudders, transverse thrusters, retractable azimuth thrusters, main winches and other deck machinery, steering gear, switchboards, consoles and automation equipment. The vessels are due to be delivered in August and December 2003 and March 2004. Simek shipyard in Norway is to build two UT712 support vessels for International Offshore Services, the joint venture between Farstad Shipping and P&O Australia. Full equipment packages from Rolls-Royce have been specified, with over 12,000 hp and 370 tonne pull winches.
