MacGregor Secures Subsea Crane Order

MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has secured a new subsea crane contract that will see the load handling specialist deliver a package of three cranes to a new offshore accommodation & construction vessel being built at Chantier Davie Canada.

MacGregor has won a contract to deliver a comprehensive set of cranes to a new vessel under construction at the long-established Canadian shipyard, Chantier Davie Canada Inc. The vessel is scheduled for delivery by the end of Spring 2015.

The vessel is the first in a series of dynamically positioned offshore accommodation and construction vessels, sleeping up to 400 passengers in a high-quality live/work environment. With that large accommodation, active heave compensated gangway and a variety of subsea and topside construction equipment, the vessel’s multi-functionality allows it to be deployed globally to perform a broad range of tasks offshore.

The MacGregor package comprises three cranes: a 250-tonne SWL active heave-compensated (AHC) subsea crane; a 20-tonne SWL offshore crane; and a 5-tonne SWL shipboard crane. “Together they will deliver an advanced, flexible package that will give the operator enhanced capabilities in the offshore construction market,” says Frode Grøvan, Director, Sales and Marketing for Advanced Load Handling.

Chantier Davie is one of the largest shipbuilders in North America and has delivered over 700 vessels and mobile offshore drilling units to clients globally.
