Rolls-Royce’s Deck Machinery, Propulsion and Engines for New OCV

Rolls-Royce has won a £19m contract with the Norwegian shipbuilding group Vard to deliver deck machinery, propulsion and engines to a new offshore construction and anchor handling vessel (OCV) for the Norwegian owner REM Supply. The vessel will be designed by Vard.

The new vessel is developed for underwater construction work and anchor handling operations in Arctic waters and will have approximately 380 to 400 ton bollard pull to fulfill the demands for operational power in the deepwater segment.

John Knudsen, President Commercial Marine, Rolls-Royce, said: “We are proud to embark on yet another project together with Vard. Our long-standing and good relationship with the shipbuilding group is unique, and has proven its value to end customers and their crews.”

The propulsion package from Rolls-Royce will comprise main engines and generators, reduction gears, Promas integrated rudder and main propeller system with nozzle, tunnel thrusters, retractable thrusters, steering gear and Helicon X3 propulsion control system.

The deck machinery package consists of a three-drum 500 ton low pressure anchor handling winch, stern roller, anchor handling cranes, centering device, stop-pins and shark-jaws. All mechanical, hydraulic and electric systems are included.

Delivery is scheduled from Vard Brattvaag in Norway in 1Q 2016. The hull of the vessel will be delivered from Vard Tulcea in Romania.
