Four new 38,000 dwt general cargo ships for Nanjing King Ship Management will benefit from the flexible load-handling capabilities of MacGregor cranes; the five cranes on each vessel will have a total lifting capability of 236 metric tons

MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has recently secured an order to supply 20 MacGregor cranes for four new 38,000 dwt general cargo vessels under construction at Taizhou Kouan Shipbuilding Co. Ltd. in China for the Chinese shipping company, Nanjing King Ship Management Co. Ltd. The vessels are scheduled for delivery between late 2014 and early 2015.The order was booked in the third quarter 2013 order intake.

"The mix of cranes is designed to provide high levels of cargo handling efficiency," said Svante Lundberg, Sales Manager, Cranes. "The nature of a general cargo vessel means that the arrangement of the cranes has to deliver high levels of flexibility for loading and discharging an extremely variable cargo profile; we have worked closely with all parties to develop the best configuration."

Each MacGregor crane outfit comprises one 36-metric-ton SWL crane with an outreach of 26m located forward, and two twin-GL cranes each with a two 50-metric-ton SWL capacity and an outreach of 26m. Delivery of the cranes is planned between 2014 and the beginning of 2015.
