MacGregor, part of Cargotec, is to supply deck equipment packages for two 78 meter anchor-handling/offshore support vessels currently under construction in Fujian Southeast Shipyard in China. The contract includes an option for further six vessels.
Each package includes a medium pressure anchor windlass/mooring winch, capstans, tugger winches, storage reels, a provisions crane, and power packs. From its Hatlapa range, MacGregor will supply each vessel with a 350 tonne line pull/450 tonne brake holding capacity low pressure anchor-handling/towing winch. This will be equipped with friction clutches to enable quick release within three seconds in case of an emergency.
MacGregor’s solutions are renowned for their product reliability and strong life cycle support, the latter being guaranteed by the company’s worldwide presence.
These strengths have not gone unnoticed: MacGregor recently received another order for two shipsets of complete Hatlapa low pressure deck machinery, to be installed on two anchor-handling/offshore support vessels.
As stated by MacGregor representative Francis Wong, the contract is further evidence of MacGregor’s breakthrough into the mid-size anchor handling winch package market. “This continuing success,” Wong states, “is facilitated by synergy orders that combine Hatlapa and MacGregor technologies to offer reliable and economical solutions with significantly improved return on investment.”
