MacGREGOR is continuing to enjoy a strong demand for its lift-away hatch covers and in July it received contracts for over €25 million worth of cargo access equipment that is destined for 39 container ships on order in South Korea
In July, the MacGREGOR Group – part of Cargotec Corporation – received hatch cover orders worth over €25 million which will see the company making deliveries of its lift-away weatherdeck hatch covers to container carriers until 2011. The cargo access equipment contracts are for 39 ships on order at Hyundai Heavy Industries and Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering in South Korea.
The order from DSME for eight 8,400 TEU ships is a complete delivery of lift-away weatherdeck hatch covers to be fabricated at MacGREGOR’s partner plants in China.
The other four orders mentioned above are for the supply of design work and key components.
All the lift-away weatherdeck hatch covers are all either reduced weathertight or non-weathertight, and can be opened and closed non-sequentially.
