OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERACARGOTEC CORPORATION, 25 FEBRUARY 2014 AT 1.00 PM (EET) – MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has won an order for two subsea cranes from South Korean shipyard Hyundai Heavy Industries Co Ltd. The active heave-compensated cranes will have an SWL of 100-tonnes and 25-tonnes respectively. They will be fitted on board a new 160m heavy construction vessel (hull 2654) being built at the yard for global offshore specialist, Subsea 7.

The MacGregor subsea cranes will support the vessel’s year-round global deployment in complex deep and ultra deepwater offshore construction operations where highest levels of load-handling precision and reliability is required. Delivery of the ship is scheduled for July 2015.

This order follows a recently announced contract for six AHC subsea cranes for three flexlay pipe-laying offshore vessels also destined for the UK-headquartered company, Subsea 7. All the vessels will benefit from the advanced offshore operational capabilities that MacGregor subsea cranes deliver.
