The vessels are being built for Lemissoler Navigation (Front Marine), based in Cyprus, with the delivery of the first two ships scheduled to start around August 2015.
The contract secured by MacGregor will see the Cargotec-owned firm deliver complete equipment packages comprising electric pole-changing winches, steering gear, air compressors, hatch covers and variable frequency drive (VFD) electric cranes – four per ship.
The accurate and energy-efficient MacGregor VFD electric cranes can save up to 35% of energy, the company claimed.
The packages include equipment from combined MacGregor Hatlapa portfolio. “The new contract was won as a direct result of our strengthened capability for larger delivery scope and a long standing relationship with the owner,” said Jörg Tollmien, head of sales for Hatlapa offering at MacGregor.
“It is also a good example of what our combined product ranges can offer customers, particularly in cases such as this where an extensive scope of deck equipment is required for multiple ships,” he added.
