Rolls-Royce wins new order from Italian shipyard for integrated power, propulsion & equipment systems for anchor handling vessel

Rolls-Royce has signed an £18 million contract with Italian shipyard Rosetti Marino S.p.A for the design and delivery of an integrated power & propulsion and equipment system for an anchor handling vessel.

The vessel will be built for Augusta Offshore S.p.A and is a repeat order of a Rolls-Royce UT 712 CD due to be delivered in June from the same yard.

Hans Robert Almestad, Rolls-Royce, General Sales Manager, said: "This is the 12th contract Rolls-Royce has signed with Rosetti and it has further strengthened our position in the Mediterranean market as a leading supplier of mission-critical technology and systems for the offshore oil and gas industry."

Due for delivery in mid 2014, the high tech vessel is specially designed and equipped for handling anchors and mooring lines in water up to 2000 metres deep. The vessel is also equipped to undertake oil recovery, fire fighting, stand by and rescue duties.

Rolls-Royce will also supply the main engines, propulsion systems and gear, tunnel thrusters, rudders, deck machinery, electrical systems as well as automation and control systems.
