Finland: Cargotec Secures Contract to Supply MacGregor RoRo for Naval Ships

Furthering Cargotec’s reputation for specialist RoRo expertise, the company has secured a contract to supply and install MacGregor RoRo equipment for two Mistral-class naval ships. The order is booked during the fourth quarter of 2011.

Cargotec signed the contract with STX France, which will undertake the construction of the ships at its Saint-Nazaire shipyard under a subcontract with fellow French yard, DCNS. The 199m multi-role vessels were co-designed by DCNS and STX.

Cargotec’s delivery will include the design, hardware and installation of MacGregor RoRo equipment. The first ship will be delivered in 2014 and the second will be delivered in 2015.

MacGregor RoRo equipment for each of the two vessels includes:

Stern ramp/door

Side ramp/door

Shell door

Hangar door

Two lifting platforms

Two bulkhead doors

Two power packs

Cargotec has previously delivered similar MacGregor RoRo access equipment to three Mistral-type vessels. Mistral and Tonnerre, the first two, were built by DCNS and STX France and delivered in 2006 and 2007 respectively and the third vessel, Dixmude, delivered in early 2012.

Cargotec improves the efficiency of cargo flows on land and at sea – wherever cargo is on the move. Cargotec’s daughter brands, Hiab, Kalmar and MacGregor are recognised leaders in cargo and load handling solutions around the world. Cargotec’s global network is positioned close to customers and offers extensive services that ensure the continuous, reliable and sustainable performance of equipment. Cargotec’s sales totalled EUR 2.6 billion in 2010 and it employs approximately 11,000 people.
