Rolls-Royce Design and Equipment for Chinese-built OSVs

Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, has won a £24 million order to design and equip four offshore service vessels which will be built by COSCO (Guangdong) Shipyard Co., Ltd in China.

The Rolls-Royce UT 771 CDL vessels will feature a fully integrated equipment system including highly efficient diesel electric propulsion, deck machinery, bulk handling equipment and automation and control systems.

Jørn Heltne, Rolls-Royce, Senior Vice President Ship Technology – Offshore said: “We are very pleased to sign our first contract with COSCO and we look forward to working closely with them. These vessels are complex, highly efficient and designed to meet specific challenges faced by the offshore industry.”

The vessels will be equipped for transporting pipes, equipment and cargo to and from pipe-laying barges, oil drilling and production platforms. The vessels will also be equipped for fire fighting.

Delivery of the four vessels is scheduled for 2014. The contract includes options to build an additional six vessels of the same design.
