Rolls-Royce to supply additional offshore cranes for Brazilian PSVs

Rolls-Royce has been awarded a contract for the delivery of offshore cranes in support of nine platform supply vessels (PSVs), which are under construction at Detroit Brasil's shipyard in Itajaì, Brazil.

Rolls-Royce has been awarded a contract for the delivery of offshore cranes in support of nine platform supply vessels (PSVs), which are under construction at Detroit Brasil’s shipyard in Itajaì, Brazil.

Awarded by Detroit Chile, the contract covers the supply of nine ship sets of the company’s award-winning dual draglink crane, making 18 cranes in total.

Rolls-Royce Offshore general manager Ottar Antonsen said: “We are pleased to be selected by Detroit Chile SA to supply this new and highly innovative PSV crane.

“A configuration with two cranes provides a safer, highly efficient, redundant and independent load handling.

“These will be the first offshore vessels which can load and unload the deck using their own equipment.”

“These will be the first offshore vessels which can load and unload the deck using their own equipment.”

Launched in 2012, the Rolls-Royce dual draglink crane enables fast loading, unloading and moving of cargo over the entire length of the main deck.

The active heave compensated crane is optimised for safer and more efficient load handling in harbour and on the ship’s deck while at sea; it has a low centre of gravity and is light for its power and capability.

The crane has already been delivered to Farstad Shipping’s vessel Far Solitaire, while one PSV is under construction at Keppel Singmarine Brazil.

In June 2013, Rolls-Royce secured a contract to supply four ship sets of dual draglink crane four PSVs under construction at Detroit Brasil.

The company has not disclosed the latest’s contract value and the delivery schedule.

Designed by Guido Perla, the PSVs are scheduled to enter service on an eight-year contract with state-owned Brazilian oil company Petrobras.

The vessels will be operated by Brazilian Starnav Serviços Marìtimos, a subsidiary of Detroit Chile.
