Rolls-Royce deck machinery for Edison Chouest anchor handlers

Rolls-Royce has won a £50m contract to deliver deck machinery for four large anchor handlers for Edison Chouest Offshore. The vessels are designed by North American Shipbuilder Inc. and will be built in Brazil by Estaleiro Navship LTDA.

 

The four vessels have been specially developed to operate in Brazilian waters under an eight year long contract with Petrobras , but will meet all demands for world-wide operations.

The deck machinery delivered by Rolls-Royce will include low pressure high torque winches, stern rollers, anchor handling cranes and anchor launch and recovery systems (A-LARS). All mechanical, hydraulic and electric systems are included in the package.

John Knudsen, Rolls-Royce, President – Offshore, said: “We are proud that Edison Chouest has chosen Rolls-Royce products for these new and advanced vessels. Our anchor handling team’s in-depth knowledge about offshore operations has been vital to developing the optimum solution together with the ship owner and designer. We look forward to continuing this journey with them.”

First delivery will take place in March 2015, the last in January 2017.
