Grimaldi renews maintenance with Cargotec

January 25 - Cargotec has secured two new MacGregor Onboard Care all inclusive contracts.

One is a continuation of a three-year agreement with the Naples-based shipowner, Grimaldi Group. This contract was signed at the end of 2009 for a total of 27 vessels and includes an option for a further two-year extension. The other contract, signed in January 2010, will cover any service issues onboard nine vessels that are owned by Grimaldi Group subsidiary, Atlantic Container Lines (ACL), and are managed by ACL Ship Management (ASM).

ACL Ship Management is totally owned by Swedish company Rederi AB Transatlantic, which takes care of ship management and crewing for Grimaldi Group subsidiary, ACL. The three-year contract (with an option for a further two) will cover nine Grimaldi Group-owned vessels. Five 58,000 dwt G3 series vessels trade between Sweden, Europe and the US/Canadian East Coast. The remaining four Grande series ships trade between North Europe and West Africa.

The scope of contract includes full responsibility for the vessel's MacGregor stern ramps and stern doors. The G3 series' Jumbo-class stern ramp has a design load of 420 tonnes and the quarter-type Grande series' ramp is designed for a 150-tonne load.

Cargotec's MacGregor Onboard Care service concept offers customers sustainable ship operations and revenue earning capabilities by ensuring the operative availability of equipment through planned maintenance products. Today, over 430 vessels are protected by a MacGregor Onboard Care agreement that takes care of hatch covers, cranes, ro-ro equipment, offshore devices, bulk selfunloaders and linkspans.
