Cargotec's maritime cargo and load handling unit MacGregor secured a turnkey contract to deliver 4 shipsets of weather deck hydraulic operated folding hatch covers for 8000 dwt coal carriers.

As per the contract, the company will design and key components, fabrication and transportation of hatch covers as well as commissioning of the complete system at Cochin shipyard Ltd (CSL), the largest shipbuilding and maintenance facility in India.

The orders will be booked into Cargotec's third quarter 2019 order intake and the deliveries are planned to be during the second quarter 2020.

MacGregor was chosen as the preferred supplier due to a proven design and high quality validation process, which ensures that every phase of manufacturing is controlled and monitored by quality inspectors. The innovative design and operational success of the solution, combined with a worldwide service network were also important in convincing the shipowner and shipyard.

"We have developed a strong relationship with the shipowner and Cochin Shipyard over the years, and are very pleased to have secured this significant new contract," says Magnus Sjöberg, Senior Vice President, MacGregor Cargo Handling.
