Cargotec's MacGregor has secured a new IHC Merwede order for subsea cranes, and in Libya Cargotec is to supply a Turkish company with a mobile cement unloader to work ports along the coast.

Subsea crane order
MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has won an order worth around EUR 23 million for six active heave-compensated (AHC) subsea cranes from the Dutch IHC Merwede.  The cranes will be installed on three pipe-laying ships destined for the UK headquartered global offshore specialist, Subsea 7. Delivery of the cranes is scheduled between June and December 2015. 


The new series builds on others under construction at the IHC Merwede yard for Subsea 7, including the 146m vessel, Seven Waves, which will also be fitted with a MacGregor subsea crane and is scheduled for delivery this year. 
  
The latest vessels, hulls 731, 733 and 735, will each be fitted with one 100-tonne SWL and one 25-tonne MacGregor AHC subsea cranes, designed to operate at  depths of 3,500m and 3,000m respectively.

Mobile cement unloader for Libya

A Turkish construction services company, Mussa Insaat Dis Ticaret Ltd of Istanbul, placed an order with Cargotec for a standard road-mobile Siwertell 10 000 S cement unloader. The trailer based, diesel powered unit will have a rated discharge capacity of 300t/h and is scheduled for delivery in mid-May 2014.

"While the unloader's primary location will be in the western part of Libya, our customer is planning to use it for cement unloading operations at several sites along the Libyan coast," said Jörgen Ojeda, Sales Director for Siwertell mobile unloaders. "This demonstrates the significant commercial and operational advantages of our road mobile systems. It is easy to move them from one port to another and, once at the new location, one man can have the unloader ready for operation within an hour."

The new unloader will be equipped with a double bellows system and dust filter, which deliver consistently high levels of efficiency and environmental protection.
