7 September, 17

MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has received an order from Yangzijiang shipyard in China to equip five 62,000 dwt open hatch bulk carriers (OHBC) with hatch covers and cranes. Equipment deliveries will start in 2018 and continue until 2019. The order was booked into Cargotec’s third quarter 2017 order intake.

“We want to help our customers succeed,” says Leif Byström, Senior Vice President, Cargo Handling, MacGregor. “Our commitment to this success is MacGregor’s long track record in engineering safe and efficient solutions for cargo handling and stowage.”

The order comprises the design of key hatch cover components and the delivery of twenty cranes; four per vessel. Each crane will be fitted with an active rotation control (ARC) system, which stabilises and automatically rotates a load in the air.

“This enables faster load handling, reduces cargo damage and delivers considerable energy savings,” adds Mr Byström.
