MacGregor gets orders

December 17 - Cargotec's MacGregor business has received orders worth close to EUR 30 million from China for ten shipsets of cranes, hatch covers and fixed container fittings for delivery in 2010-2011.

Six of the ships are 9,500 dwt multipurpose cargo and container vessels ordered by a European owner from Yangfan Group Co Ltd. The other four are 18,000 dwt multipurpose vessels ordered by an undisclosed European owner from Wuhu Xinlian Shipbuilding.

MacGregor, owned by Cargotec, is supplying hatch cover design and key components and fixed container securing equipment for deck and holds for both series.

"Close co-operation between MacGregor's different product areas has been one of the key factors in our success" said Svante Lundberg, sales manager for cranes. "Another important factor is working closely with customers early on in projects, which enables us to provide the most effective and functional solution for their particular cargo handling needs".

The six 9,500 dwt ships on order at Yangfan Group will each carry two GLH heavy-lift cranes, while the four 18,000 dwt multipurpose vessels will each carry three. The ships are designed to carry containers in the holds and on hatch covers, bulk cargoes, heavy cargoes, steel coils, project cargo (large and heavy), timber and palletised cargo.
