Rolls-Royce has won an order from Singapore-based PaxOcean, to provide the ship design, propulsion systems and deck machinery for two UT 755 CD platform supply vessels.
The PSV’s will be built at PaxOcean Engineering’s offshore vessel shipyard in Zhuhai, China, with delivery due in 2012.
The order is worth over UKP 12 million to Rolls-Royce and includes options to construct a further four vessels of the same type.
Y.K. Tang, Director of PaxOcean Group Marketing, added: “We are very happy to build on our good relationship with Rolls-Royce and pleased to construct this leading design in diesel-electric offshore vessels. Our in-house PaxOcean Engineering Design team is also very pleased with the close collaboration with Rolls-Royce.”
Ronny Pål Kvalsvik, Rolls-Royce, Sales Manager – Ship Technology Offshore, said: “These vessels combine a proven Rolls-Royce ship design, integrated with a range of mission-critical onboard technology, enabling safe and efficient operation in the challenging environments of oil and gas fields. We look forward to working closely with PaxOcean throughout the construction of these advanced vessels.”
