STAVANGER, Norway -- Cargotec has signed a contract to deliver a range of advanced MacGregor offshore and subsea load handling systems to a deepsea research vessel which will be built at Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Shimonoseki shipyard in Japan. The announcement came during ONS 2010.

The contract covers some MacGregor products for ultra deepwater operations and deck handling machinery, and will be manufactured at Cargotec’s production hub in Kristiansand, Norway. The contractual agreement includes an engineering package and customization for special operations and the distinctive design of the vessel.

Systems ordered include a large knuckle-jib crane; an advanced moonpool-based module handling system, deck-skid system, and several deepsea AHC winches. All winches in this series have a MacGregor electric drive.

“This contract serves as recognition of Cargotec’s capacity and technological expertise in the offshore load-handling segment,” said Øystein Bondevik, sales director for offshore load handling at Cargotec.
