Rolls-Royce wins order from Fratelli D'AmatoVessel & ROV News // July 13, 2011
Rolls-Royce has announced an £11 million order to design and equip two offshore service vessels for Italian ship owner Fratelli D’Amato.
These UT 755 XL vessels will carry out operations in the offshore oil and gas sector and will be built at the Rosetti Marino SpA shipyard in Italy.
The order includes an integrated system of Rolls-Royce equipment including thrusters for manoeuvring, rudders, propellers, deck machinery and a bulk handling system for the safe loading of fluids and solid cargo.
The vessels are due to be delivered by the end of 2013.
This order will bring Fratelli D’Amato’s fleet of Rolls-Royce UT vessels to eight. It currently operates four UT vessels and has two more under construction.
The UT 755 series offers a combination of large carrying capacity, high efficiency and low emissions. It is the workhorse of the offshore oil and gas industry with 170 vessels in operation or on order around the world.
