UK: Rolls-Royce Books USD 161 Million Orders from Major Drilling Contractors

Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, today announced orders worth over £100 million to supply propulsion systems for offshore construction and drilling vessels.

The ships will be built at shipyards in Asia for a range of ship owners including Seadrill, Pacific Drilling, Noble, Ocean Rig and Pride.

Anders Almestad, Rolls-Royce, President – Offshore said: “These orders demonstrate the success of our innovative and highly efficient marine technology. Our in-depth understanding of the demanding offshore industry and our proven technology ensures that our integrated propulsion systems are industry leading and meet the extraordinary demands placed on them.”

These vessels will carry out drilling operations in deep water oil and gas fields. Each ship will feature multiple thrusters, which will be used to propel the vessels to and from drill sites and to maintain their position during drilling operations.

Rolls-Royce is a leader in the provision of integrated power and propulsion systems for vessels operating in offshore exploration and production. These include drilling ships, mobile rigs, construction vessels and shuttle tankers.

The orders announced today also include options to supply additional thrusters.
