rolls-royce, your perfect partner for efficient and cost
effective systems solutions
Rolls-Royce has a wealth of experience in ship, propulsion
and power systems design. We have designed more than
800 offshore and merchant vessels in the last 30 years, and
many of them are now working in the worlds harshest
environments. Investment continues in the technologies
that address the need for more efficient and environmentally
sustainable power and propulsion systems.

NAVAL VESSELS We go to great lengths to develop energy efficient hull

forms and integrate them with innovative high-performance
propulsion systems to minimise fuel consumption, lower
maintenance costs and reduce emissions. Proven experience
in using LNG as a marine fuel spans over five years, with a
growing number of Rolls-Royce LNG powered ships at sea.

The breadth of our product offering enables Rolls-Royce

to bring the right products together so the propulsion and
ancillary systems fully match the ship owner's operating
requirements. Construction and operational support is also
simplified - as there is a single point of contact for service and

Rolls-Royce, with the Bergen engine range is a leading developer
and manufacturer of medium speed diesel and gas propulsion
engines and generator sets. Since 1946 we have developed
and installed thousands of units, meeting the requirements of
ship owners and land-based installations for robust, reliable and
economical power. In the 1980s we developed our lean burn
combustion system and applied it to engines using various types
of gas as fuel. This has been further refined on our latest gas
engines, providing leading thermal efficiencies with high power
density and low emissions.

As the marine industry is increasingly turning towards

burning natural gas for propulsion, Bergen gas engines
have built an unrivalled track record in powering ships, and
reducing exhaust emissions of carbon dioxide, NOx, SOx and

Azimuth thrusters
Rolls-Royce is a global leader in the supply of azimuth

thrusters. In an azimuth thruster the propeller rotates 360
around the vertical axis so the unit provides propulsion,
steering and positioning thrust for superior manoeuvrability.
Designs have been developed for propulsion and dynamic
positioning in response to market requirements. As a result
there is a design available to suit virtually any application.
Simple and robust construction provides high operational
reliability together with simple maintenance for low through

Rolls-Royce is a world leader in propeller design and supplies

controllable pitch propellers, fixed pitch propellers, and the
innovative adjustable bolted propeller. Unlike other propulsor
designers we have our own hydrodynamics research centre,
equipped with two cavitation tunnels. In over 40 years of
operation the centre has tested around 1,400 propellers and
waterjet pumps to perfect and prove the design. Rolls-Royce
propellers deliver good fuel economy, low vibration and noise
levels and minimal cavitation.

Oil distribution systems
Controllable pitch propellers Kamewa CP propellers are available with three types of oil control

The Rolls-Royce Kamewa waterjet range is the broadest in the
business. Manufactured in aluminium and stainless steel, they are
available in powers from 50kW to above 36MW. Using the latest
design techniques unit size, weight and life-cycle costs have been
reduced. The waterjet has many advantages over the propeller
for high speed vessels. They provide higher speeds with the same
power, or substantially lower fuel consumption at a constant
speed and lower power.

At constant rpm, a Rolls-Royce waterjet absorbs approximately the

same power regardless of the ships speed. The engine cannot be

overloaded, which means less engine stress and longer service
life. Waterjets produce less noise and vibration than propellers.
At speeds over 20 knots it can be by as much as 50 per cent. No
reversing gearbox is required and craft can stop in a few lengths,
turn on the spot and even manoeuvre sideways.

All Kamewa A3-series waterjets are supplied with an integrated and
high performance aluminium inlet duct, with the hydraulic valve
block and pipework mounted on it for simple and cost effective
installation. The compact reversing bucket is one of the most
efficient available, and delivers around 70 per cent of forward thrust
for quick stopping. A new stainless steel steering nozzle minimises
hydrodynamic losses and noise levels while providing superior
speed in turns. The A3-series offers seven different water outlet
nozzle diameters to provide a balance to the waterjet speed, and
five different impeller blade pitch angles for fine adjustment of the
rpm for optimum performance.

Promas offers increased propulsive efficiency and improved
manoeuvrability by adapting the propeller and rudder into
one propulsive unit. It is suitable for conventional single and
twin screw ships.

Each installation comprises a twisted full spade rudder with a
Costa bulb that is smoothly connected to the propeller by a
hubcap, and a propeller design adapted to the rudder.

A well designed twist adapts the rudder to the rotation of

the propeller slipstream and reduces the angle of attack on
the rudders leading edge. This gives a more efficient rudder
profile with lower drag and better recovery of rotational
energy from the propeller slipstream.
propulsive efficiency improved
promas In general, the Promas efficiency gain is in the region of 3 8 per
cent for single screw, and 2 6 per cent for twin screw vessels. A
good rudder design with optimised profile shape, positioning of the
rudder in the slipstream and skeg design can increase the propulsive
efficiency by an additional 2 per cent. Comparison tests between a
conventional propeller-rudder system and Promas are shown in the
graphs below.

Promas Lite is a version of the successful Promas system that can be
easily fitted to vessels already in service. The installation is simple with
only three areas of modification:
Welding a prefabricated bulb in position on the existing rudder
Bolting the hubcap to the propeller hub
Fitting of a new propeller or reblading the original one

0.3 Improving propulsive efficiency is key to reducing fuel burn and

emissions. Promas Lite installations on vessels operating significantly
off their original design speed should provide an efficiency
improvement in the region of 5 15 per cent. Recent installations
0.2 on twin screw cruise vessels have demonstrated efficiency
improvements within these guidelines giving a payback period of well
under two years. The improvement it delivers in propulsive efficiency
means that engine loads are reduced, which also helps to lower wear

Podded propulsors
MermaidTM pods have steadily evolved over the last decade.
The range offers five fame sizes from 1,850mm to 2,770mm
motor stator diameter, with five powers from 5 to 27MW.
Advances in design have increased the power density, which
means for a given power the pod diameter can be reduced

allowing a more streamlined form for the underwater unit for
improved efficiency. Both induction and syncronous motors
are offered. For ice-going vessels induction motors are
normally specified due to their good torque characteristics at
low speed. Rolls-Royce and GE Energy Conversion combine
their resources and expertise on the electrical, mechanical
and hydrodynamic elements of the design. The application
of Mermaid pods is not restricted to passenger vessels or ice
going ships. Underwater mountable units are available for
rigs, and Mermaid pods are also powering naval vessels.
podded propulsors
Mermaid pods offer flexibility in vessel design and machinery layout.
They combine the functions of a propulsion motor, main propeller,
rudder and stern thruster in a single unit. The integrated electric motor
drives the shaft, saving space on board and eliminates the need for
a gearbox.

The propeller is a fixed pitch high skew design for low noise and vibration.
It can be supplied as a monobloc or with separately bolted blades, that can
be simply changed in the event of damage. All seals are environmentally
friendly, with no oil release in the event of a failure.

Stabilisation and
Various types of Rolls-Royce stabiliser technology can be
selected to match the vessel and its operating requirements.
Fin stabilisers are popular and suitable for a broad range of
vessels and reduce roll when underway. Tank stabilisation
and anti-heeling systems are effective at low speeds or when
stationary. The Neptune range uses a retractable fin that folds
into slots in the hull, flush with the vessels side, and is ideal
for cruise ships and larger ferries. The smaller and lightweight
Aquarius range is suitable for large yachts and smaller cruise
vessels. Fin designs have been modified and control systems
developed to provide stabilisation at rest capability for large
yachts using both Aquarius and Neptune range. Where it
is not necessary or required for the fin to retract, both the
Modular and Gemini range cater for a variety of applications
including military vessels.

non-retractable stabilisers
against ease of installation.

The Modular range uses a simplified design configuration that offers
reduced maintenance costs. In operation, the superior hydrodynamic
profile of the fin blade remains unbroken, reducing the potential for
cavitation. The range fully satisfies military standards for noise, shock
and vibration levels where required to meet specifications.

including hydraulic power units, control and alarm systems.
We also see more navies and coastguards selecting our COTS
steering gear.

Rotary vane steering gears are very compact they include

integrated rudder carrier bearings (lubricated by the hydraulic
system oil) and are typically 50 60 per cent the weight of some
competing designs, with low noise and vibration. Operationally,
rotary vane is widely selected as it ensures full torque is available
at all rudder angles. It gives more flexibility in the design of the
steering system as the steering gear is optimised for the type of
rudder it will be used with. Units come in 2, 3 and 4 vane variants
with 70, 45 and 35 rudder angles respectively.

The Rolls-Royce standard RAS systems is designed to transfer 2 tonnes at
ship distances from 24 to 55m, (max. 61m) and at ship speeds between 10
and 16 knots. A new heavy replenishment-at-sea system (HRAS) has been
developed that will permit loads of up to 5 tonnes to be safely transferred
between ships. This contrasts with the light jackstay rig which is a simple Large derrick rig dual purpose rigs
manual system for the transfer of loads up to 250kg.

At the heart of each system is the AC powered jackstay winch, that

automatically responds to extremes of vessel movement once the tension
is set. Where liquids and solids are required to be transferred at the same

Automation and control
Ergonomically designed systems with an intuitive operator
interface are essential in environments where operators
demand maximum reliability, efficiency and safety.

Our systems are developed from an in-depth experience of

over 30 years. We pay great attention to the human machine
interface (HMI) to reduce operator fatigue, important when
controlling complex vessels for prolonged periods. Maximum
use is made of configurable controls and touch screens.

Our common system architecture and design philosophy
provides proven standard modules as building blocks for
fully customised systems, so that the specific operating
requirements of each vessel can be met. The Rolls-Royce
family of dynamic positioning systems uses the latest
technology and our integrated bridge concept provides
multiple workstations with the flexibility to switch between
functions in a comfortable ergonomic environment,
enhanced by the integrated operators chair.
