Rolls-Royce has secured an £8-million contract to design and power a highly specialised buoy tender vessel for India.

The vessel will be built at the Cochin Shipyard Ltd. in India, and is due for delivery in 2015, to operate in remote waters off the east coast of India and around the Andaman & Nicobar Islands maintaining and replacing navigational aids and buoys.

In addition to the design, Rolls-Royce will also supply the main engines, propulsion system, automation and control system, deck machinery and shaft generators.
