MSC Hires MacGregor to Upgrade 31 of Its Ships

Swiss-based Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) has hired MacGregor, part of Cargotec, to optimise the container carrying capabilities of the company’s 31 vessels from six different ship series.

Upgrade work on the vessels will be carried out under a MacGregor Cargo Boost service, part of its PlusPartner concept, which is designed to improve the earning potential of existing containerships. The upgrades include an individual plan for each vessel, with a focus on improving earning potential and efficiency.

“Each cargo system upgrade has been carefully designed with MSC,” Atte Virta, Naval Architect, Cargo Handling, MacGregor, said.

“The vessel type and their service deployment have been considered in detail. This ensures optimum cargo system flexibility and efficiency, which maximises the vessels’ earning potential and return on investment,” Virta added.

MSC and MacGregor have agreed not to disclose the contract value or other contractual details. Work will be carried out on a rolling schedule with all vessels expected to return to service by the end of 2018.
