Press Release
Tuesday, April 10, 2012

Cargotec has received an order to supply a total of twenty 150-ton electric MacGregor winches for two pipe-laying heavy-lift offshore construction vessels (N448 & N449) which are currently being constructed  at Cosco (Nantong) Shipyard Co Ltd. in China. The vessels are being built for Malaysian offshore installation and maintenance specialist TL Offshore Sdn. Bhd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of SapuraCrest Petroleum Bhd.

Each MacGregor mooring system includes ten electric mooring winches, wire rope leading sheaves and accessories.

“The mooring winch system is designed to maintain its designed limit of movement in all anticipated sea and weather condition,” said Ilpo Heikkilä, Vice President for winches at Cargotec.

The two vessels are scheduled for delivery by the beginning of 2014 and will be deployed for marine construction contracts in Australia and regions in the Middle East and North Africa, for major oil companies. Cargotec is scheduled to deliver the mooring systems in the first quarter of 2013.
