IHC Merwede Orders MacGregor AHC Subsea Cranes

MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has won an order worth around EUR 23 million for six active heave-compensated (AHC) subsea cranes from the Dutch IHC Merwede.

The cranes will be installed on three pipe-laying ships destined for the UK-headquartered global offshore specialist, Subsea 7. Delivery of the cranes is scheduled between June and December 2015.

The new series builds on others under construction at the IHC Merwede yard for Subsea 7, including the 146m vessel, Seven Waves, which will also be fitted with a MacGregor subsea crane and is scheduled for delivery this year.

The latest vessels, hulls 731, 733 and 735, will each be fitted with one 100-tonne SWL and one 25-tonne MacGregor AHC subsea cranes, designed to operate at depths of 3,500m and 3,000m respectively.
