By combining our OEM experience with specialist diving skills we provide innovative underwater equipment exchange solutions. Underwater intervention activities can eliminate the need for urgent dry-docking, minimise off-hire time and maximise the revenue-generating capabilities of the vessel.
For example, using our patented underwater tunnel thruster removal and installation process, a thruster can be exchanged underwater in 12 hours by the quayside in line with the vessel’s planned itinerary.
Rolls-Royce provides complete project management for underwater intervention activities – including project planning, logistics, service engineers, divers, tools and spare units, as well as service centre overhaul (and in some cases storage) of removed units.
Underwater intervention can be arranged in line with a vessel’s itinerary, with the service team and equipment meeting the vessel at the agreed location. This minimises operational disruption and reduces turnaround times.
Our underwater intervention portfolio includes:
The underwater repair solutions offered by Rolls-Royce utilise key diving expertise to assist in repair and maintenance work below the waterline, providing an alternative to dry-docking.
