Rolls-Royce Wins $3.1 Million Contract

Thursday, November 09, 2000
Rolls-Royce has landed a $3.1 million order from Ferguson Shipbuilders in Port Glasgow for an equipment package comprised of Rauma Brattvaag deck machinery, bulk handling systems and Tenfjord steering gear and rudders.

The package has been ordered for a new 246 ft. (75 m) Stirling Shipping anchor handling tug-supply vessel (AHTS), which will be an enhanced version of M/V Stirling Iona, which was delivered by Ferguson earlier this year.

The new AHTS will house an anchor handling and towing winch with a capacity of 380-tons pull; the winch will be the largest ever fitted to a U.K.-built ship by Brattvaag.

With a gt of approximately 2,350 and a dynamic positioning system, the vessel is scheduled for a February 2002 delivery.
