Cargotec Secures Offshore Crane Orders from Malaysia

The high degree of reliability and performance expected from its offshore cranes has earned Cargotec orders from the wholly-owned subsidiaries of a Malaysian shipbuilding and vessel chartering group, Coastal Contracts Bhd.

In March Cargotec has secured new orders for two 100-tonne active heave-compensated offshore cranes from the wholly-owned subsidiaries of a Malaysian shipbuilding and vessel chartering group, Coastal Contracts Bhd (together with its subsidiaries “Coastal Group”), which is headquartered in Sabah.

The cranes are destined for two 85m newbuild offshore support vessels currently under construction within the group. “There was strong competition for these new orders,” says Frode Grovan, Cargotec Director, Sales and Marketing, Advanced Load Handling. “We were delighted that Coastal Group opted for our cranes and they will offer the new vessels high-precision reliable performance for a range of demanding offshore operations.”

The delivery of the offshore cranes is scheduled within14 months and they will be manufactured in China.
