CARGOTEC CORPORATION, PRESS RELEASE, 26 JUNE 2019 AT 9 AM EEST
Cargotec`s MacGregor, MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company and Guangzhou Wenchong
Dockyard have signed a contract to upgrade the cargo systems on 6 x 16,000 TEU
containerships owned and operated by MSC. These Cargo Boost orders will be
booked into MacGregor`s second quarter 2019 order intake and the upgrades will
be implemented during drydocking in 2020. The parties have agreed not to
disclose any further contractual details.
MacGregor and MSC have together defined and developed the cargo system solution
for these vessels. "The objective was to determine the best solution for the
operating profile and to deliver a modern, efficient and environmentally-
friendly upgraded cargo system," says Magnus Sjöberg, Senior Vice President,
Cargo Handling and RoRo, MacGregor.
MSC is committed to promoting a sustainable business model that goes far beyond
a "business as usual" approach, remaining true to its roots and its core family
values. "MacGregor's Cargo Boost is a good example how we can drive down the
energy required to transport each individual container and reduce emissions per
transported TEU," says Giuseppe Gargiulo Head of Department, New Building, Dry
Dock and Conversions, MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company.
