Cargotec Supplies MacGregor Access Equipment For Cruise Ships

Monday, March 07, 2011

Cargotec is supplying MacGregor access equipment for two cruise ships for MEYER WERFT, scheduled for delivery in 2013 and 2014.

The contract includes passenger doors, tender platforms, shell doors and platforms for loading stores, bunkers and luggage, and for mooring operations, and the weight of the MacGregor equipment totals around 230 tonnes per shipset.

"Each ship will be provided with MacGregor passenger access equipment which enables smooth and safe embarkation of passengers via the passenger entrance doors or embarkation platforms," says Göran Hugon, Cargotec’s sales manager for passenger ship and RoRo systems. "Loading luggage, provisions and fuel, and discharging garbage, is efficiently handled with the numerous side shell doors, as are mooring operations. This order highlights the success of Cargotec's strategy to re-enter the cruise ship market."

"Cargotec has a long experience in providing innovative solutions based on proven technology. This, together with a close cooperation with MEYER WERFT shipyard, made us successful in securing the order."
