UK's MacGregor, part of Cargotec, says it has secured a contract to supply 7 hydraulically-operated linkspans to the Port of Stockholm in Sweden. The linkspans have been ordered as part of a port development project to extend the capabilities of Stockholm's largest harbour, Värtahamnen and Kapellskär harbour.

Five linkspan units will be installed in Värtahamen and two in Kapellskär. The contract contains a number of options for further units intended for other sites within the port.
 
"The design of the linkspans is based on, and developed from, the best characteristics of a series of successful deliveries," says Clas Hedelin, Sales Manager, Port Solutions, RoRo Systems. "These include linkspans for the Norwegian ports of Langesund, Risavika, Kristiansand, Langesund and Larvik, as well as the Moroccan port of Tangier."
 
Deliveries will take place in 2015 and 2016 and all the steel structures will be CE-marked in accordance with the latest regulations.
 
By the end of June 2014, any steel structure delivery in the European Union and the European Economic Area must have a CE mark to signify production to a consistently high standard. In March this year, MacGregor attained authorisation to CE mark its steel structures according to the fabrication quality standard, EN1090-1 - the certification required by all companies that supply fabricated steel structures.

In April MacGregor delivered its first unit with the new CE mark, a water taxi terminal for the Port of Lysekil in Sweden.
