Rolls-Royce wins a £12 million order to design and equip two platform supply vessels (PSVs) to be built at Jiangsu Eastern Heavy Industries in China.

Rolls-Royce UT 755 LN vessels are designed specifically for transporting solid and liquid cargo to and from offshore oil and gas platforms world wide.

In addition to the design, Rolls-Royce will supply an extensive range of onboard equipment, including main engines, propulsion system, thrusters, automation and control systems, deck machinery, bulk handling systems, rudders, steering gears and shaft generators.

Since the first UT 755 was delivered in 1996, more than 180 vessels of this popular design have gone into service, or are on order, worldwide. Increasingly efficient hull designs, diesel electric propulsion technology and design solutions that minimise environmental impact and improve the comfort and safety of the crew are hallmarks of the newer UT 755 models.

Anders Almestad, Rolls-Royce Marine’s President - Offshore said: "This contract further strengthens Rolls-Royce’s presence in China. Jiangsu Eastern Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. is a new client for us in the offshore market. We are very happy to be chosen as a supplier of ship design and integrated systems for these advanced offshore vessels. We look forward to growing our relationship with the yard through this important contract'."

The vessels are due for delivery in 2014.
