MacGREGOR brings passenger cruise service skills to ferry market
MacGREGOR new RoRo lashings are stronger, lighter and easier to use
MacGREGOR Securing division new generation of RoRo lashings improve operator efficiency and offer a guarantee of strength
Building on its sustained success in the container lashing market, MacGREGOR Securing division is continuing its aggressive programme to introduce a new range of fittings for the RoRo ship sector. MacGREGOR pioneered the development of RoRo ships and historically the Conver (now MacGREGOR-Conver) brand established a leading position in the development of efficient RoRo securing systems. Now, MacGREGOR Securing division is strengthening its position in the RoRo sector with a new range of improved products.
In the same way that we have improved the efficiency of lashing containers on container ships, we are making it easier and more cost effective for operators of RoRo tonnage, says J¼rgen Gloystein, general manager of MacGREGOR Securing division, introducing the new range of refined RoRo products.
Heading the product development is the new generation of Speedlash chain turnbuckle which was introduced two years ago. The new version Speedlash is stronger, lighter and more easily handled by operators.
Speedlash is similarly priced and of comparable weight to competing lashing devices but by using what MacGREGOR describes as a bending moment eliminator it has a higher breaking load than its competitors. Speedlash fully complies with the international standard of 20-tonne breaking load and relevant proof load of about 12 tonnes without deformation. Many competing devices in the market do not meet this standard and this puts at risk the safety of ships, their crew and their cargo, Mr Gloystein says.
