Rolls-Royce has secured an £8m contract to design and power a highly specialised buoy tender vessel for India.

The vessel will operate in remote waters off the east coast of India and around the Andaman and Nicobar islands, maintaining and replacing navigational aids and buoys.

It will be built at the Cochin Shipyard and is due for delivery in 2015.
