The MacGregor order was booked into Cargotec's second quarter 2017 order intake. The delivery will be completed in the second quarter 2018.

MacGregor's order is part of an Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation (EPCI) contract to provide Excelerate the mooring and gas transfer system for a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU).

MacGregor's scope of supply includes on-vessel equipment, Flintstone mooring connectors, as well as project management for the fabrication, procurement and project management of the complete mooring and riser system for the FSRU operated by Excelerate Energy.

This order is a natural step in our strategy to expand to the FSRU market with one of world's leading players," says Michel van Roozendaal, President, MacGregor. "This order proves the combined strength of both MacGregor and Flintstone."
