MacGregor Receives Order for Two Subsea Cranes from HHI

MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has won an order for two subsea cranes from South Korean shipyard Hyundai Heavy Industries Co Ltd. The active heave-compensated cranes will have an SWL of 100-tonnes and 25-tonnes respectively.

They will be fitted on board a new 160m heavy construction vessel (hull 2654) being built at the yard for global offshore specialist, Subsea 7.

The MacGregor subsea cranes will support the vessel’s year-round global deployment in complex deep and ultra deepwater offshore construction operations where highest levels of load-handling precision and reliability are required. Delivery of the ship is scheduled for July 2015.

This order follows a recently announced contract for six AHC subsea cranes for three flexlay pipe-laying offshore vessels also destined for the UK-headquartered company, Subsea 7. All the vessels will benefit from the advanced offshore operational capabilities that MacGregor subsea cranes deliver.
