Rolls-Royce Receives Several Orders In Last Few Weeks
Rolls-Royce, a global power systems company, has received orders in the last few weeks to design and equip five offshore and special purpose vessels, along with options worth about US$101.5 million (€80 million).
Rolls-Royce signed a contract with Italian shipyard, Rosetti Marino Spa, for delivery of an integrated Rolls-Royce equipment system, including propulsion systems, rudders, deck machinery, thrusters, automation and control systems for a UT 712 CD anchor handling tug. The vessel will be built for Augusta Offshore Spa in Naples, Italy and is due for delivery in the third quarter of 2012. This contract also includes an option for an additional vessel.
A new customer also has ordered three UT 515 CD designs from Rolls-Royce, with delivery starting in late 2011. These vessels are designed to undertake salvage, rescue and towing operations, including fire fighting and pollution prevention. Each vessel, which is 86 m in length with a beam of 17.5 m, will be delivered with a fully-integrated Rolls-Royce equipment system, including engines, propulsion systems, rudders, deck machinery, thrusters, automation and control systems and positioning equipment. The order also contains a customer training program that will be delivered at the new Rolls-Royce training center in Aalesund, Norway.
Another recent order is for the design and delivery of an integrated Rolls-Royce equipment system for a UT 755 L3X, which will be built at Caspian Energy Projects LLC shipyard in Russia.
