China Navigation Company orders 16 electrically-driven MacGregor cranes from Cargotec

China Navigation has signed a contract with Cargotec for 16 electrically-driven bulk versions of its variable frequency drive MacGregor cranes. The order has been booked in the second quarter 2012 order intake.

For its new series of four 39,500 dwt handy sized bulk carriers, Bdelta37 type, The China Navigation Company Pte Co Ltd, (CNCo), has specified electrically-driven variable frequency drive (VFD) versions of MacGregor bulk handling cranes from Cargotec.  

The Bdelta37 vessels will be constructed at Chengxi Shipyard in China and are scheduled for delivery in 2013 and 2014. Each will be equipped with four GLBE 3026-2 MacGregor cranes.  There are options open for a further six vessels.

Per-Erik Nilsson, Sales and Marketing Director for cargo handling cranes at Cargotec ssays: "Efficiency savings are mainly attributable to a 30 to 35% reduction in power compared to Macgregor's [earlier] closed loop electro-hydraulic cranes and between 60 to 70% for open loop cranes plus faster and more accurate hook and grab positioning, which reduces time spent in port. Together, these factors will result in significantly lower fuel consumption in port thereby lowering the carbon footprint. "
