Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industry (ZPMC) has placed an order for four MacGregor subsea cranes.

The contract includes a 400 tonne safe working load (SWL) active heave compensated crane. The model is capable of deploying 3,000 metres of wire rope, the manufacturer said.

All four cranes will be fitted to a new 145 metre dive support vessel (DSV), which is under construction at offshore support company Sealion Shipping’s yard.

The cranes are due to be delivered during the third quarter of 2016.
