MacGREGOR's offshore deliveries aided by floating testbed

February -26-MacGREGOR's Offshore division is expanding its equipment testing capabilities in Kristiansand, Norway to handle business growth and a large number of active heave-compensated (AHC) offshore cranes and other subsea load-handling equipment.

The site's need for increased testing capabilities will be met by a multi-testbed barge named MacBarge, which was ordered in the summer of 2008 and scheduled to arrive and be fully-operational by the end of February.

The 76m x 23m MacBarge is designed to test two large AHC offshore cranes simultaneously, as well as winches, ROV systems and other subsea load-handling technology. It carries its own 2,000kVA power unit.

MacBarge will enable full scale testing of various MacGREGOR products to be conducted prior to installation on board vessels, improving the total efficiency of the test process. MacGREGOR is part of Cargotec Corporation.
