Rolls-Royce to Supply Advanced Anchor Handling Systems for Four Vessels in Singapore

 

Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, has been awarded a £50 million contract by Swire Pacific Offshore to supply advanced anchor handling systems for four offshore vessels, currently under construction in Singapore.

The systems are developed for the safer handling of large anchors on deck, such as the torpedo anchors used in the deep water oil and gas fields off the coast of Brazil.

Arne Tande, Rolls-Royce, Senior Vice President – Offshore Deck Machinery, said: “Rolls-Royce supplies world leading marine technology that enables our customers to operate safely in challenging conditions, such as the deep water oil and gas fields. We are delighted that Swire Pacific Offshore has again selected our safety-critical technology, which demonstrates that our focus on research and development, and advancements in the technical capabilities of our products, continues to position Rolls-Royce as the market leader for specialist handling equipment in the offshore industry.”

Rolls-Royce will supply a complete deck machinery system to each of the four vessels, which are being built at the ST Marine Singapore shipyard. At the heart of the system is a low-pressure hydraulic winch for anchor handling and towing, with a pulling capacity of 500 tons.
