Cargotec Secures Offshore Crane Orders for North American Customers
In September Cargotec secured new orders for its MacGregor offshore cranes. The cranes are destined for three vessels being built for US, Russian and Canadian customers.
- For the US shipowner, Cargotec will deliver an advanced MacGregor 100-tonne active heave-compensated (AHC) offshore crane with operational capability at depths of 3,000m. The crane is scheduled for installation during early 2010 on one of the operator’s existing vessels.
- For a new-build government-owned research vessel under construction at a Russian shipyard, two 12-tonne knuckle-jib MacGregor cranes will be delivered and installed in 2010.
- For the Canadian order, a knuckle-jib crane will be delivered to an offshore vessel under construction at Halifax Shipyard, with a delivery date planned for early next year.
"Although there has been some obvious uncertainty in the marine market for some time, prospects for the offshore and subsea industries remain strong for several years to come," said Oystein Bondevik, sales director for offshore load-handling at Cargotec. "Our focus remains on innovation and the development of market-driven solutions that guarantee top performance and add value to our customers' operations worldwide."
