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.
