Rolls-Royce receives first orders for cargo vessels

Rolls-Royce has received its first order for vessels based on the group’s Environship concept.

Rolls-Royce will design and provide integrated power and propulsion systems for two technologically advanced cargo vessels, which have been purchased by Norwegian transportation company, Nor Lines.

The two Rolls-Royce NVC 405 cargo vessels will be built at the Tsuji Heavy Industries shipyard in Jiangsu, China.

The vessels will enter service from October 2013, operating along the west coast of Norway.
