MacGregor have been able to make a breakthrough into the mid-size anchor handling vessel market with low pressure anchor handling/towing winches

 

MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has got an order from Wuhu Xinlian shipyard in China to supply a full package of MacGregor anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) equipment to two 150-tonne bollard pull AHTS/oil recovery vessels. The equipment is scheduled for delivery by May 2015 and an option remains for two more ship sets.
 

"The contract was won as a direct result of MacGregor's recently extended product portfolio and its ability to offer competitive and highly technical advanced technology with strong lifetime support worldwide," says Francis Wong, Vice President, Segment Sales, Offshore. "With MacGregor's comprehensive product range coupled with the experience and services that come with its Hatlapa and Triplex products, we have been able to make a breakthrough into the mid-size anchor handling vessel market with low pressure anchor handling/towing winches."
 
The scope of MacGregor equipment includes a medium-pressure anchor windlass/mooring winch, capstans, tugger winches, storage reels and a power pack. From MacGregor's Hatlapa range it will deliver a 300-tonne line pull/450-tonne brake holding capacity low-pressure anchor handling/towing winch - equipped with friction clutches to enable quick release within three seconds during an emergency. From its Triplex range MacGregor will deliver 360-tonne SWL shark jaws and 200-tonne SWL guide pins.
 
"Triplex shark jaws also have a two-second quick-release function, putting them amongst the best performing jaws on the market," adds Mr Wong.
