DECEMBER 15, 2014 — Cargotec's MacGregor unit has received an order from Norwegian shipbuilder Kleven in Norway for six comprehensive deck handling equipment packages. They will be installed on the six 95 m long SALT 200 AHTS design orderered by Maersk Supply Service in October (see earlier story).
The contract will see MacGregor deliver Triplex 42 Multi-deck handlers, Shark jaws and Towing pins as well as huge 1,250 t SWL Hatlapa stern rollers to each vessel. MacGregor's delivery of Triplex and Hatlapa products is planned to start in the last quarter of 2015 and run until the second quarter of 2017.
The contract also includes options to equip an additional four vessels. The parties have agreed not to disclose the order value.
"We are proud that Kleven and Maersk Supply Service, a leading shipowner in the offshore industry, have trusted MacGregor to deliver key systems for these new vessels," says Pasi Lehtonen, Senior Vice President for MacGregor Offshore Segment. "Having Triplex and Hatlapa products in MacGregor's offshore product portfolio ensures that both the shipyard and owner benefit from the advantages of integrated equipment packages supplied by a single company."
