Brazilian offshore operator Companhia Brasileira de Offshore (CBO) has ordered two Rolls-Royce offshore vessel design and equipment systems worth £13m.

Rolls-Royce is providing the main engines and propulsion system along with the automation and control systems.

In addition, the two UT 715L vessels will be equipped with Rolls-Royce thrusters, steering gear and rudders, and will include bulk handling system and deck machinery.

The contract follows eight previous orders from CBO. The vessels will be delivered in 2011.
