Rolls-Royce supply equipment for Bourbon Offshore Norway

Rolls-Royce is to deliver deck machinery and engines to an arctic Anchor Handling Tug Supply vessel (AHTS) to be built by Vard for Bourbon Offshore Norway. The contract has a value in excess of £17M for Rolls-Royce.

The deck machinery delivery from Rolls-Royce will consist of anchor handling winches, secondary winches, auxiliary winches, anchor handling cranes and a wide range of safer deck operation equipment. The engine delivery consists of two main engines and three main generator engines. AHTS vessels are built to handle anchors for oil rigs and perform rig moves. They also serve as supply vessels to and from offshore drilling rigs and this vessel will have the capability to serve in emergency rescue and recovery operations.

John Knudsen, Rolls-Royce, President Offshore, said: “Bourbon Offshore has chosen power and volume on both anchor handling winches and secondary winches. This means that the vessel will be in the top class for winch capacities compared to all AHTS vessels built to date.”
