MacGregor, part of Cargotec, will supply deck machinery for a new emergency rescue & response vessel (ERRV) for Aberdeen-based offshore support vessel operator, Sentinel Marine.
According to MacGregor, the 65m ship has been designed by Focal Marine & Offshore Pte Ltd and will have a bollard pull of 100 tonnes of FOCAL 552. The order for the complete MacGregor anchor handling solution was booked into the third quarter 2015 order intake, the company has said.
MacGregor said it would supply a complete deck machinery package including a 200-tonne line pull / 300-tonne brake holding anchor handling towing winch, complete with a hydraulic spooling device, as well as Triplex shark jaws and guide pins.
“MacGregor products were chosen because of their high quality and the company’s worldwide service capabilities,” said Yaw Chee Keat, Shiptype Sales Manager, MacGregor Offshore Deck Machinery.
The new ERRV will have multi-purpose role. MacGregor added that, in addition to emergency rescue and response operations, the vessel would be able to undertake towing and anchor-handling operations.
