Cargotec Receives an Order for Four World's Largest Ship Board Twin Cranes
Cargotec's MacGREGOR business area providing marine cargo handling solutions has received an order from the Polish-Chinese shipowner Chipolbrok for four ship board twin cranes. The ship board twin cranes will be delivered during 2007-2008 for four Chipolbrok vessels built in 1990s for upgrading their cargo handling ability. The value of the order is approximately EUR 8 million.
Chipolbrok is one of the leading operators of general cargo ships between Asia and US as well as Europe. MacGREGOR agreed in 2006 to deliver three similar ship board twin cranes to Chipolbrok. The now ordered four ship board twin cranes will be manufactured at MacGREGOR's long-term partner plant Nanjing Lüzhou Machine Works in China. Two ship board cranes can hoist a load simultaneously or separately. The hoisting capacity of a twin crane is 150 tonnes at 20 meters and 90 tonnes at 28 meters.
