LONDONRolls-Royce has signed a three-year joint service agreement for 74 offshore vessels with owners Siem Offshore and Subsea 7.

This involves maintenance and servicing of all equipment supplied by Rolls-Royce to the various vessels.

Steinar Sandberg, Head of Group Procurement at Siem Group, said: “We believe we can save money by jointly entering into this kind of service agreement.

“We have a modern and technically advanced fleet that requires good follow-up throughout the vessels’ working lives.”

Knut Hovland, Rolls-Royce Director, Marine Services, said: “We have…a network of service stations at 34 locations worldwide, so we can be close by whenever equipment needs servicing or repair.”

The company is now exploring digital opportunities to provide ship owners with new services based on surveillance of ships’ operations and equipment from control centers located on shore.
