Cargotec Corporation, 11 March 2014 at 10 AM (EET) – MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has secured deck equipment contract for a series of eight 58, 500 dwt bulk carriers under construction at New Times Shipbuilding in China. The vessels are being built for Lemissoler Navigation (Front Marine), based in Cyprus, with the delivery of the first two vessels scheduled to start around August 2015.

The contract will see MacGregor deliver complete equipment packages comprising electric pole-changing winches, steering gear, air compressors, hatch covers and variable frequency drive (VFD) electric cranes, four per ship.

The packages include equipment from combined MacGregor Hatlapa portfolio.”The new contract was won as a direct result of our strengthened capability for larger delivery scope and a long standing relationship with the owner, ” says Jörg Tollmien, Head of Sales for Hatlapa offering at MacGregor.

“It is also a good example of what our combined product ranges can offer customers, particularly in cases such as this where an extensive scope of deck equipment is required for multiple ships, ” Mr Tollmien notes.
