John Paterson, Rolls-Royce, President – Marine, and Professor Liu Nan, Chairman of the Board and General Manager, Bestway represented the two companies at the signing ceremony.

The collaboration will focus upon development of innovative and environmentally friendly marine designs.  Rolls-Royce and Bestway will share expertise through joint working, in order to customise existing vessel designs to better suit the Chinese and European markets respectively. These vessel types include product and chemical tankers, RoRo, RoPax, feeder containers, and multi-purpose vessels.

The two companies also plan to develop new designs to address the growing demand for environmentally friendly, energy efficient ships, including the application of Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) power.

The group is also developing a network of service centres in Dalian, Shanghai and Guangzhou to serve its marine customers across China.
