Cargotec Receives Cargo Access Equipment Order

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

Commercial vessels with capabilities for special types of cargo benefit from proven RoRo access technology
 
In March this year, Cargotec received an order for MacGregor RoRo cargo access equipment for two multi role vessels under construction at the German yard P+S Werften in Stralsund for ferry operator DFDS Seaways.  Both vessels are due to be delivered in the first half of 2012.  
 
The 3,000 lane-metre capacity newbuildings will also have room for 342 TEU on the weather deck, a special requirement of the Danish-German ARK project for the transport of military vehicles and containers.
 
The extensive outfit of MacGregor equipment for each ship comprises:
 
•         Stern ramp/door stbd
•         Stern ramp/door port
•         Side ramp/door port
•         Ramp cover
•         Front door
•         Hoistable car deck
•         Movable ramp to car deck
•         Pilot/bunker doors
•         Engine room hatch
•         Main power pack
 
Göran Hugon, Sales Manager, RoRo Ships says:  "Cargotec has co-operated both with the yard and the owner for many years, and we won this order because of the proven record of MacGregor RoRo equipment installed in previous newbuildings for DFDS."
