In the last quarter of 2011 Cargotec secured contracts for MacGregor bulk handling systems for installation onboard four offshore support vessels newbuildings belonging to two different owners; one in the UAE and the other in Spain.

Enköping, Sweden – At the end of November, Grandweld Shipyards in the United Arab Emirates ordered MacGregor bulk handling systems for two anchor-handling tug/supply vessels. They will handle cement, barite and bentonite for their owner Halul Offshore Services Company, in Doha, Qatar. Equipment for both vessels is scheduled for delivery at the end of June 2012.

In December Cargotec received an order for MacGregor bulk handling systems to be installed on two PSVs under construction at Astilleros Balenciaga in Spain, for North Star Shipping in Scotland, UK. The vessels will operate in the North Sea and will handle cement, barite and bentonite. The equipment is scheduled for delivery in June and November, 2012.

"For the owners, it was important that the vessels were fitted with simple and well proven bulk handling technology, with a solid track record," says Pankaj Thakker, Cargotec Sales Manager, Marine Selfunloaders. "Each installation will feature dust-free operation and low power consumption, making these some of the most environmentally-friendly systems available today."
