GustoMSC Secures Order from COOEC for an Offshore Crane

On September 13, 2007 GustoMSC signed the contract with COOEC (Chinese Offshore Oil Engineering Company), which is part of CNOOC (Chinese National Offshore Oil Company) for a 4,000 tons offshore crane.

Our scope will be the design, project management and delivery of components, supervision of construction, testing and commission. COOEC is going to build the large steel components on their yards in Tanggu and Qing Dao. Delivery of the crane is planned for the first quarter of 2010.

The crane will be installed on COOEC’s DPV 7500, a GustoMSC design dynamically positioned pipelay/ crane vessel. COOEC awarded a contract to Shanghai’s Rongsheng Shipyard for the construction of the vessel.
