    Rolls-Royce wins contract for Farstad anchor handlers

    Vessel & ROV News // August 15, 2011

    Rolls-Royce has won a £50 million contract to design and equip two anchor handling vessels for Norwegian company Farstad Shipping.

    The Rolls-Royce UT 731 CD vessels are designed to work in extreme environmental conditions and carry out operations in water as deep as 3,000m.

    The order includes a fully integrated equipment system from Rolls-Royce, including deck machinery, vessel control systems and a diesel-electric hybrid propulsion system. This will be fitted on both vessels to maximise efficiency, reduce fuel burn and cut emissions.

    The vessels will be built at STX OSV Langsten yard in Norway, with delivery between April and June 2013.
