Rolls-Royce contracted by Aliança S/A Industria Naval e Empresa de Navegacao, a subsidiary of Fischer Group, and Brazilian shipowner Asgaard Navegação S.A for the design and delivery of equipment to two offshore vessels for Asgaard.

The contract value is about £11million to Rolls-Royce. The two vessels are Oil Spill Response Vessels (OSRV), type UT 535 E, with systems designed to prevent damage from oil spills. They have the capacity to transfer recovered oil for proper onshore disposal.

Rolls-Royce will deliver design and equipment packages including propulsion systems, thrusters, DP systems, power electrical systems, automation and control systems, deck machinery and MTU engines.

The Aliança shipyard is owned by CBO (Companhia Brasileira de Offshore) and has previously built ten Rolls-Royce vessels for CBO’s own fleet.

The vessels for Asgaard are due for delivery in 2015, with an option to build two more.

Anders Almestad, Rolls-Royce, President- Offshore, said: “We are very pleased that Asgaard have chosen Rolls-Royce design and integrated systems for their new offshore vessels. Asgaard is a new customer to us and working closely together with them during the construction of these advanced vessels will be vital. We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with Asgaard.”

“This order also marks the continuation of a long cooperation between Rolls-Royce and Aliança, and underscores our strength and capabilities in the Brazilian market.”
