Rolls-Royce Wins £15m Brazilian Order for Offshore Supply Vessels

Friday, August 26, 2011

Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, has won an order to design and equip two UT 735 SE offshore supply vessels for Brasil Supply.

The order is worth £15 million to Rolls-Royce. The contract includes vessel design and an integrated Rolls-Royce equipment system including propulsion, deck machinery, bulk handling and vessel control systems. The vessels will be chartered by Brazil’s state oil company Petrobras and are designed specifically for carrying fluids and solid cargo to and from offshore oil and gas platforms. This is the second order from Brasil Supply this summer, and the company now has four Rolls-Royce designed offshore vessels on order, all of which will be built at Estaleiro Ilha S.A in Brazil. Atle Gaasø, Rolls-Royce, General Manager Sales - Offshore Service Vessels, said: “With this contract Rolls-Royce further strengthens its presence in Brazil, and we look forward to working with both the owner and the yard throughout the construction of these custom made vessels.” The vessels will be ready for delivery in 2013. To provide support for a growing installed base of equipment in Brazil, Rolls-Royce opened an advanced marine repair and overhaul facility in Niteroi in 2009. This forms part of an expanding network of Rolls-Royce Marine Service Centres, three having been opened already this year in Gdynia (Poland), Walvis Bay (Namibia) and Rotterdam (Holland).
