DECEMBER 30, 2014 — Cargotec says that its MacGregor subsidiary has received a large order from Chinese shipbuilder Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industry Co Ltd (ZPMC). The contract is for four offshore cranes, including a 400-tonne SWL active heave-compensated crane capable of deploying 3,000 m of wire rope.
All four cranes will be fitted to a new 145 m dive support vessel (DSV) under construction at the yard for U.K.-based operator Sealion Shipping. Delivery of the cranes to the Chinese shipyard is scheduled during third quarter of 2016.
Sealion is an offshore support company that manages and operates offshore support vessels for Toisa.
The DP3 vessel is equipped for worldwide operations in the oil and gas sector and on ultra-deepwater projects. Delivery is planned for early 2017.
