Rolls-Royce Reels in Another Contract from Island Offshore
Rolls-Royce has won a BBP17 million follow-up order to design and equip a specialist well intervention vessel.
The latest order, from Island Offshore, follows the successful delivery of the first well intervention vessel, Island Wellserver, in March this year.
The new 130 m long UT 767CDL vessel, which will drill in ultra deep waters, offers single cabins for 97 crew members. As with the UT 767CD Island Wellserver, the vessel meets cruise ship standards for noise and vibration.
Jorn Heltne, Rolls-Royce Vice President Ship Technology, Offshore, said, "Island Offshore's decision to once again choose Rolls-Royce design and equipment in this highly specialised segment is a vote of confidence both in our products and our people."
The vessel, to be delivered in 2011, will be built at Aker Yards, Langsten, Norway. In addition to design, Rolls-Royce will also deliver four main engines, propulsion, deck machinery and automation systems.
The contract brings the total number of Rolls-Royce UT Design offshore vessels under construction worldwide to 120. Around 650 of these ships have been built or ordered since the mid 1970s.
