Island Offshore Chooses Rolls-Royce Propulsion Systems

Tuesday, August 02, 2011

Rolls-Royce recently won a £20 million (over $32.5 million) order to design and supply power and propulsion systems for two UT 776 CD supply vessels for Island Offshore.

Island Offshore were the first to introduce the UT 776 CD ship, which is designed to transport supplies to and from offshore oil and gas platforms. These vessels are the ninth and tenth ordered by the operator to date.

In addition to the ship design, the order includes a fully-integrated diesel-electric power and propulsion system, featuring four Rolls-Royce Bergen engines, to power two Azipull thrusters. The ships will also feature a dynamic positioning system, which uses satellite technology to maintain the ship’s position; a comprehensive range of deck machinery; and a bulk handling system, designed for the safe loading of cargo.

The two UT 776 CD vessels will be built by STX OSV at its Brevik shipyard in Norway, with delivery scheduled for 2013.
