Cargotec's MacGregor received €22 million order to deliver a 900-ton active heave-compensated (AHC) MacGregor subsea crane to the South Korean shipyard, Hyundai Heavy Industries Co Ltd.

 

The crane will be installed on a 150m multi-purpose offshore construction vessel (MOCV) ordered by Sealion Shipping, on behalf of Toisa Ltd.
 


"This is the largest active heave-compensated MacGregor offshore crane that has been ordered," said Frode Grøvan, Director, Sales and Marketing for Advanced Load Handling. "At a time when subsea modules are getting larger and heavier and operations are being conducted at ever greater depths, a sophisticated crane on this scale equips the new vessel to meet the ever increasing demands of the offshore construction market."


 
Sealion Shipping, a U.K.-based offshore support company that manages and operates offshore support vessels for Toisa, describes the MOCV as a customised version of an Ulstein Deepwater Enabler design. It said: "The DP 3 vessel is designed and equipped for worldwide operations in the oil and gas sector, ultra deepwater installation and construction, flexible lay, pipe lay, cable lay and topside construction support, and will be built to the highest standards and with maximum flexibility and capability prioritised".


 
The crane delivery is planned for the beginning of 2015, with the vessel delivery following shortly afterwards in July.
