“The customer chose MacGregor’s pneumatic dry bulk handling system because it offers high functionality and excellent reliability, important benefits supported by testimonials from other satisfied customers,” said Francis Wong, head of sales and marketing at MacGregor Offshore Deck Machinery. “The fully automated self-discharging model is quick, safe, efficient, clean and labour saving.
“The advantages begin in the shipyard and extend throughout the vessel's lifetime. This is because the distributed control and profibus system are quick and easy to install, while maintenance costs are low. MacGregor’s global service network ensures excellent customer support wherever these new vessels are deployed.”
The first totally enclosed self-loading and unloading cement carrier with MacGregor highly automated cargo handling gear was commissioned in 1947. Since then MacGregor has remained a leading player in the development and supply of reliable, energy-efficient pneumatic conveying systems with high pumping rates for the marine and offshore industries.
