MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has secured a contract that will see eight cranes fitted on board a new series of four compact semi-submersible (CSS) offshore accommodation vessels for Marine Assets Corporation (MAC). Each vessel, under construction at Fujian Mawei Shipbuilding Ltd. in China, will feature a 60-tonne and a 12-tonne offshore MacGregor crane. Crane deliveries are scheduled to begin in August 2014 and finish by the end of February 2015.
"MAC's new CSS accommodation vessels have been specifically designed to respond to the market's need for cost-effective and flexible accommodation and offshore support vessels," explained Frode Grøvan, Sales and Marketing Director for MacGregor Advanced Load Handling. "The proven capabilities of MacGregor's offshore cranes add to this flexibility."
MAC is a private shareholding company with offices in Dubai and Singapore. It specializes in newbuild offshore support vessels for the oil and gas industries and currently has over 20 new build vessels under its management and control.
