Rolls-Royce wins contract to design and equip two OSVsVessel & ROV News // August 18, 2011
Rolls-Royce has won an order to design and equip two UT 735 SE offshore supply vessels for Brasil Supply. The order is worth £15 million to Rolls-Royce.
The contract includes vessel design and an integrated Rolls-Royce equipment system including propulsion, deck machinery, bulk handling and vessel control systems.
The vessels will be chartered by Brazilís state oil company Petrobras and are designed specifically for carrying fluids and solid cargo to and from offshore oil and gas platforms.
This is the second order from Brasil Supply this summer, and the company now has four Rolls-Royce designed offshore vessels on order, all of which will be built at Estaleiro Ilha SA in Brazil.
The vessels will be ready for delivery in 2013.
