MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has secured an order to provide deck handling solutions for two T-ATS class vessels to be built at Gulf Island Shipyards LLC, a subsidiary of Gulf Island Fabrication Inc.

The order was booked into Cargotec’s second quarter order intake, with deliveries planned during the last quarter of 2021 through to the first quarter of 2022.

This order represents the fourth and fifth shipsets that MacGregot will supply for the new T-ATS class, which will be deployed for worldwide naval service including open-ocean towing, supporting salvage operations and submarine rescue missions.

MacGregor’s scope of supply includes deck machinery, towing winch, traction winch, shark jaws, towing pins/pop-up pins, stern roller, offshore crane and other accessories.

“This new order further confirms MacGregor’s position as a trusted provider of solutions for naval logistic vessels, with equipment installed on a broad spectrum of ship types” says Leif Bystrøm, Head of Offshore Solutions Division, MacGregor.
