Nam Cheong orders MacGregor winches

MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has secured a winch package contract from Nam Cheong Limited group, Malaysia’s largest offshore support vessel builder.

Eight-point MacGregor mooring systems, with a 150-tonne line pull/270-tonne brake holding capacity, tugger winches and capstans have been specified for two new 500-men accommodation work barges being built at the yard. An option remains for two more barges.

The 123m barges are scheduled for delivery in 2016. They will enter service for one of the largest accommodation/work barge specialists in Asia, Perdana Petroleum Berhad.

“Our winches have been chosen by these leading companies because of their proven reliability and performance,” says Francis Wong, Vice President, Segment Sales, MacGregor Offshore.

“MacGregor’s strong lifecycle support services and its presence worldwide were additional factors in securing the contract,” adds Wong.

Malaysia-based Perdana Petroleum Berhad says that the new vessels will help the company take full advantage of the increasing demand for accommodation barges in the market from maintenance contracts and enhanced oil recovery activities.
