Power systems company Rolls-Royce has secured a £10m contract to design and equip two offshore supply vessels for ship owner Gulf Offshore North Sea.

The two UT755 XL designs will be built at the Rosetti Marino SpA shipyard in Ravenna, Italy, with expected delivery in 2013 and 2014.

Rolls-Royce will also provide a propulsion system for each vessel, including propellers and thrusters, along with deck machinery, bulk handling equipment and a ship automation package.

When this order is delivered, Rosetti Marino SpA will have constructed 10 Rolls-Royce UT vessels.
