Rolls-Royce Wins PSVs Design and Equipment Package

Rolls-Royce has won an order to provide an integrated design and equipment package for two offshore supply vessels to be built at COSCO (Guangdong) Shipyard Co., Ltd in China for the Singapore based Chellsea Group, an ambitious and quality conscious player in the offshore oilfield services industry.

The two Rolls-Royce UT 771 WP platform supply vessels will be the first vessels in Asia featuring the striking wave piercing bow designed to pierce through the waves in rough seas, making it possible to keep a more constant speed, reduce fuel consumption and increase on board safety.

The vessels will be added to the fleet of two UT-vessels operated by Chellsea today.

Anders Almestad, Rolls-Royce, President – Offshore, said: “This new design has been developed in cooperation between Rolls-Royce, the ship owner and the yard. Their viewpoint has been vital to our design team in this project. We are very pleased that COSCO have confidence in us and introduced us to another new customer. We look forward to building a fruitful relationship with Chellsea going forward.”

The delivery from Rolls-Royce will comprise ship design and an extensive integrated systems package including MTU-engines, propulsion system, power electrical system, bulk handling system, deck machinery, automation and control system as well as dynamic positioning system that use satellite technology to automatically maintain the vessels’ position without anchoring.

The two vessels are scheduled for delivery in 2015. The contract includes an option for additional four vessels.

There are 22 Rolls-Royce UT-vessels under construction in China at present. Of these are four UT-vessels under construction at the COSCO Guangdong yard and four at the COSCO Zhoushan shipyard.
