The latest Rolls-Royce UT 717 CD platform supply vessels ordered by Island Offshore will feature an integrated power and propulsion system incorporating main engines, controllable pitch propellers, bow and stern thrusters, deck machinery and an automation and control system.

The vessels will be built at the STX OSV yard in Brevik, Norway and will be ready for delivery in the latter half of 2013.
