Rolls-Royce to design OSV for Island Offshore

Rolls-Royce has won a £7 million ($11.25 million) order to provide design, integrated power and propulsion systems and equipment for an offshore service vessel for Norwegian ship owner Island Offshore.


The offshore service vessel will be built at VARD shipyard in Brevik, Norway and is due for delivery in January 2016.

In March this year Island Offshore placed an order for two Rolls-Royce designed vessels, due for delivery in 2015 from the same shipyard.

The latest Rolls-Royce designed offshore support vessel will encompass an integrated power and propulsion system incorporating main engines, reduction gears, controllable pitch propellers, bow and stern thrusters, steering gears, deck machinery, dry bulk system and an automation and control system.

Jørn Heltne, Rolls-Royce, Senior Vice President – Sales, Ship Design & Systems, said: “We are honoured and delighted to announce this contract, the fifth this year with Island Offshore, and look forward to the continuation of a long lasting relationship with both Island Offshore and the VARD Group.”

Recently, Vard signed a contract with Island Offshore for the construction of one offshore support vessel.
