They will be built in accordance with clean design regulations and be equipped for fire fighting and oil recovery. Planned delivery of the vessels is in the first half of 2013. The Rolls-Royce UT 755 CD design is a development of the popular UT 755 series vessel, designed specifically for supplying equipment to oil and gas platforms. Since the first UT 755 was delivered in 1996, more than 180 vessels of this design have gone into service or are on order worldwide.
