New Orders for Cargotec

Friday, July 09, 2010

Following a successful run of deliveries to Bourbon’s Liberty 200 series of AHTS vessels, the offshore services specialist has now placed orders for a further four state-of-the-art MacGregor anchor-handling systems from Cargotec. Cargotec has won a contract to supply four sets of MacGregor anchor-handling systems to a series of anchor-handling tug supply (AHTS) vessels on order at Sinopacific Group in China for major offshore oil and gas services company, Bourbon. The AHTS vessels are based on a SPA80 design, which has been jointly developed by Bourbon and its partner Shanghai Design Associates (SDA). The anchor-handling equipments are scheduled for delivery in 2011. "The systems employ proven technologies already specified for more than 54 Bourbon Liberty 200 series AHTS vessels, of which 42 ships have been delivered so far" explains Francis Wong, Cargotec’s sales director for anchor handling solutions. "The safe and efficient AHTS equipment, with state-of-the art technology, has been specially designed and manufactured to meet Bourbon’s operational requirements in continental offshore markets, as well as deepwater offshore fields.

Some of the equipment has been specified for three anchor handling tugs being built at Sapor Shipbuilding Industries, in Malaysia. Other anchor handling equipment is destined for a 45m anchor handling offshore support tug being built at GMG International Shipbuilding & Trading Co, Ltd, in China, and for a 60m anchor handling offshore support vessel being built at Chinese yard, Fujian Crown Ocean Shipbuilding Industry Co. Equipment for the latter two vessels will be delivered during the first quarter of 2011.
