Hyundai Samho Orders MacGregor Cargo Handling Systems for Hapag-Lloyd Newbuildings

Cargotec’s MacGregor has received an order worth USD 21 million for optimised cargo handling systems for five 10,500 TEU container ships currently under construction at South Korean shipyard Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries for German operator Hapag-Lloyd.

The boxships are planned for delivery between October 2016 and May 2017 and will primarily be deployed on South American routes.

The optimized MacGregor cargo handling system for each new vessel will comprise hatch covers, lashing bridges, a loose lashing system and container fittings, along with related software and a lifecycle support package.

“Cargo system flexibility during loading and unloading operations, in combination with attaining a vessel’s actual payload capacity, is crucial for maximizing a ship’s revenue and long-term profitability,” said Tommi Keskilohko, Director at MacGregor’s Customer Solutions.

“Such efficiency can only be achieved when all parts of a cargo system are designed as one integrated element at an early stage of any newbuiding project, before any restrictive decisions have been made.”
