MacGregor deck equipment for China-built AHTS

MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has won a contract from Chinese shipbuilder Wuhu Xinlian to supply two complete deck equipment packages for a pair of 78m anchor handling, supply and oil recovery vessels.

The MacGregor equipment will be installed on the 12,000 bhp, 150 tonne bollard pull vessels under construction for Sentinel Offshore (L) Limited. Equipment delivery is scheduled during August and September 2015.

The contract follows a similar order from Wuhu Xinlian placed in August 2014, to supply full packages of MacGregor AHTS equipment for two 150 tonne bollard pull AHTS/oil recovery vessels.

“This new order from Wuhu Xinlian is a great endorsement for the range and quality of our equipment, as well as the excellent level of service we provide,” says Francis Wong, Head of Sales and Marketing at MacGregor Offshore Deck Machinery.

“MacGregor was chosen to supply these two vessels because of its ability to offer extremely efficient and competitive solutions. Having added the Hatlapa and Triplex brands to our portfolio, we are able to offer complete, proven and competitive solutions for the mid and large sized AHTSV market.

“Furthermore, we are one of only a few manufacturers who can offer true global lifetime support as well as intensive crew training.”

Each MacGregor equipment package for the current order includes a medium pressure anchor windlass/mooring winch, capstans, tugger winches, storage reels, a provision crane and power packs. From the Hatlapa range, MacGregor will supply a 300 tonne line pull/450 tonne brake holding capacity low-pressure anchor handling/towing winch.

This will be equipped with friction clutches to enable quick release within three seconds during an emergency. A pair of Triplex 360 tonne shark jaws and 200 tonne towing pins will also be included as part of the contract.
