Rolls-Royce announced it has signed a cooperation agreement with the Astican Shipyard in Las Palmas, Canary Islands that it said will enhance the service capabilities of both parties to meet growing demand from rig and drillship owners.

A new 1,980m2 service facility will be built by Astican for Rolls-Royce to service and overhaul the complete Rolls-Royce product range, including the simultaneous reconditioning of up to six Azimuth thruster units.

Coupled with Astican’s ship repair facilities, the new custom-built service center at the crossroads of the Atlantic, linking Europe, Africa and the Americas, will allow Rolls-Royce to better serve operators with ongoing exploration, production development operations in these regions.

Woman dies in Tenerife Floods

Heavy rain caused chaos in the Canary Island city of Santa Cruz de Tenerife on Sunday with one woman dying after she found herself trapped underneath a parked car during flash flooding.

The woman died after flash flooding in the city’s Avenida de Venezuela knocked both her and her husband off their feet.

They found themselves trapped under a parked car when the woman suffered a heart attack. Health workers were unable to revive her when they arrived on the scene.

Elsewhere across the island, the autumn storms saw businesses and garages flooded while landslides caused road closures.
