    Rolls-Royce wins 54 million worth of contracts

    News // January 4, 2002
    Rolls-Royce has won contracts worth 54 million to design and supply integrated equipment packages for nine offshore service vessels for owners in Brazil, France, Norway and the USA.

    The packages will be supplied to shipyards in 2002 and 2003, and the vessels will be delivered in 2003 and 2004.

    Rolls-Royce currently has 71 UT-Design offshore service vessels on order or under construction, worth a total of 270 million. A total of 390 UT700 series vessels have been built or are under construction since they were first sold in the mid-1970s.

    Six of the nine latest vessels will be UT712 and UT722 anchor handling tug supply vessels, which tow platforms and floating drilling rigs to location and can lay moorings and anchors.

    The other three are UT755 platform supply vessels, which transport fuel, stores and equipment from shore to rigs and platforms. These latest contracts take the total number of UT755s in service or on order to 41.

    Saul Lanyado, Rolls-Royce President - Marine, said: "Our development of market-leading products such as the UT700 series has enabled us to develop long-term relationships with customers. These relationships are key to our continued understanding of market requirements - ensuring our investment in technology results in products which meet a real customer need."
