Cargotec’s MacGregor wins order for 45 electric winches from Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries

By: | at 02:07 PM | Channel(s): Breakbulk & Projects  

The winches will be installed on Hyundai Heavy Industries’ 10,000-tonne new heavy lift vessel, which will be one of the world’s largest heavy lift ships designed to support shipbuilding activities and offshore lifting operations in international waters.

“This order is a breakthrough for MacGregor’s offshore winch business in the Korean offshore market and reaffirms MacGregor’s reputation as the leading provider of efficient and environmentally friendly solutions,” says Francis Wong, Offshore Segment’s Sales and Marketing Director at MacGregor. “Ship blocks and offshore structures are getting bigger and heavier, and in order to handle these safely and efficiently the worldwide demand for heavy lift vessels has increased.”
