    Vessel & ROV News // January 25, 2011

    Rolls-Royce has announced an order from Singapore-based offshore company PaxOcean to provide the ship design, propulsion systems and deck machinery for two PSvs.

    The order is worth over £12 million to Rolls-Royce with additional options to construct a further four vessels of the same type.

    YK Tang, Director of PaxOcean Group Marketing, said: “We are very happy to build on our good relationship with Rolls-Royce and pleased to construct this leading design in diesel-electric offshore vessels. Our in-house engineering design team is also very pleased with the close collaboration with Rolls-Royce.”

    Ronny Pål Kvalsvik, Rolls-Royce, Sales Manager - Ship Technology Offshore, said: "These vessels combine a proven Rolls-Royce ship design, integrated with a range of onboard technology, enabling safe and efficient operation in the challenging environments of oil and gas fields."

    The UT 755 CD design for PaxOcean is a development of the popular UT 755 series. The vessels will be built at PaxOcean Engineering’s offshore vessel shipyard in Zhuhai, China, with delivery due in 2012.
