Cargotec has secured an order for six of its MacGregor knuckle-job cranes units from STX Europe.

The cranes are specifically designed to operate in severe climatic conditions and extreme air temperatures and will be installed on three icebreaker tugs, designed by Aker Arctic Technology Inc. The units are scheduled for delivery throughout the period between June 2010 and January 2011.

This order builds on a proven performance of MacGregor offshore load-handling equipment in extreme conditions, such as the Arctic, and follows the delivery of two large offshore cranes and two oil-offloading systems to Russian company Sevmorneftegaz for use in the Prirazlomnaya field -- a forerunner to the Shtokman project -- in the Barents Sea.
