MacGregor wins subsea crane contract

November 18 - MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has won a contract to deliver a 250-tonne safe working load (SWL) active heave-compensated (AHC) subsea crane for the 120 m construction vessel, Island Intervention.

MacGregor was awarded the contract by Marine Procurement Ltd, part of the US company Edison Chouest Offshore.

The vessel, Island Intervention, which is currently operating in the North Sea for the partnership between Edison Chouest Offshore and Island Offshore, has an existing lifting capacity of 140 tonnes but requires more, says Frode Grøvan, director of sales and marketing for advanced load handling.

"The order confirms the trend that we see of subsea modules getting larger and heavier, therefore requiring operators to equip their vessels with ever more capable cranes," Grøvan added.
