Rolls-Royce Equipment for Indian Coast Guard
ABG Shipyard, the largest private yard in India, has selected Rolls-Royce to design and provide equipment for three Indian Coast Guard ships designed to prepare the country for potential environmental crises – particularly oil spills. Each ship will feature a range of Rolls-Royce propulsion, steering and motion control equipment including: two Bergen B32 diesel engines, two Kamewa Ulstein propeller plants, an Ulstein Aquamaster thruster, Tenfjord steering gear, an Ulstein rudder, Rauma Brattvaag deck machinery, Ulstein automation system and switchboards and Intering anti-roll stabilization.
The three vessels, each 94 meters in length and weighing 3,300 tonnes, will be built at the ABG Shipyard in Surat in a US$91 million contract with the Coast Guard, the first being delivered in 2006. The contract from ABG is worth US$25 million to Rolls-Royce.
