Ezra Orders MacGregor Cargotec Cranes
Cargotec will deliver two large offshore cranes to Singapore-based Ezra Marine Service Pte Ltd in 2010 and beginning of 2011 respectively. The cranes will be fitted to a deepwater anchor-handling towing/supply vessel (AHTS) and to a self-propelled accommodation barge. The value of the order is approximately $16.4m and it was booked in the first quarter 2010 order intake.
The order comprises two large active heave-compensated subsea knuckle-jib cranes. The first is for an ultra-deepwater AHTS. This 150 tonne SWL crane has an under-deck mounted winch with a 3,000m wire. The second crane is a 150-tonne SWL version being installed on a DP self-propelled accommodation barge.
Cargotec will manufacture vital components for the two cranes at its state-of-the-art unit in Kristiansand, Norway and at the recently modernised manufacturing, assembly and testing plant for offshore load handling solutions in Singapore.
