(Press Release)
Monday, January 03, 2011

Four new LNG-powered RoPax ferries, destined for service in the Norwegian fjords, will feature a suite of MacGregor RoRo access equipment from Cargotec. In November Cargotec secured an order from Gdansk Shiprepair Yard Remontowa in Poland to deliver MacGregor cargo access equipment for four 4,200gt RoPax ferries.
“Efficient and reliable cargo access equipment is essential for the profitable and safe operation of the ferries,” says Lars Öberg, Sales Manager for RoRo ships at Cargotec. “Cargotec has a long experience in providing innovative solutions based on proven technology. This, together with close cooperation with the customer, made us successful in securing the order.”
The new 93m-long LNG-powered ferries will have capacity to carry 390 passengers and 120 cars at service speeds between 12 and 17 knots. They will be operated by Torghatten Nord and are intended for the inner and outer Vestfjord crossings in northern Norway.

Each of the vessels will feature the following MacGregor cargo access equipment:
·              bow visor and door with folding ramp
·              stern door and ramp
·              two hatch covers
·              engine service hatch and two power-packs.
 
The MacGregor equipment will be fabricated at Cargotec's partner plants and will be delivered during 2011/2012.
