Rolls-Royce receives order for platform supply vessels

Rolls-Royce has received an order from Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Mipo Dockyard to design and equip four deepwater platform supply vessels.

The contract is worth more than £45m to Rolls-Royce and includes options for a further two vessels of the same type.

The vessel designs are UT 776 CD — a development of the Rolls-Royce UT 700 series, designed specifically for supplying equipment and services to deepwater oil and gas platforms.
