Brazilian offshore operator expands its fleet of Rolls-Royce vessels

CBO (Companhia Brasileira de Offshore) has purchased two further Rolls-Royce offshore vessel design and equipment systems.

This latest contract, for two UT 715L ships, follows a series of similar orders from CBO, including two vessels already in service, three that are to be delivered this year and a further three for delivery in 2010.

Rolls-Royce is supplying the main engines and propulsion system as well as the automation and control systems.
The two vessels will also be equipped with Rolls-Royce thrusters, steering gear and rudders, and will feature bulk handling system and deck machinery.

The two new UT 715L vessels will be delivered in 2011.
