    Vessel & ROV News // December 21, 2007

    Rolls-Royce has won £72 million of further business on its largest ever offshore marine contract, taking the total order value to £155 million.

    In June 2007, the company announced an £83 million contract to deliver designs and equipment for six new Rolls-Royce offshore service vessels to Nordcapital, which will be operated on their behalf by OSM Schiffahrt. The new order win covers a further four ships.

    The vessels - designed by Rolls-Royce and incorporating a range of its marine equipment, including diesel engines, deck machinery, thrusters and dynamic positioning systems - will be built by the Korean yard Sekwang.

    The four vessels are of the UT 786 CD design and are deep water anchor handling vessels.

    John Paterson, Rolls-Royce President - Marine, said: “We are delighted that Nordcapital has now specified Rolls-Royce designs and systems for the whole of its current building programme for new offshore vessels.”
