Cargotec’s MacGregor has received a $48.3 million order from Hornbeck Offshore Services Inc. to deliver four 250-ton active heave-compensated subsea cranes for four multi-purpose supply vessels.
The offshore cranes will be delivered between fourth quarter 2014 and third quarter 2015.
“MPSVs are specialized vessels that are principally used to support complex deepwater subsea construction, installation, maintenance, repair and other sophisticated operations,” says Frode Grøvan, sales and marketing director for MacGregor Advanced Load Handling, in a Cargotec news release. “We are pleased that Hornbeck Offshore opted MacGregor’s advanced 250-ton AHC subsea cranes with operational capability at depths of 3700m suitable for ultra-deepwater operations.” ? ?
