Offshore crane manufacturer MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has signed a contract for four subsea cranes with Malaysian shipbuilding, ship repair and chartering group, Coastal Contracts.

For the order, four of the MacGregor 100 tonne safe working load (SWL) active heave-compensated (AHC) subsea cranes will be installed on four subsea support vessels (SSV), a company spokesperson said.

Tom Svennevig, MacGregor vice president, advanced load handling, said, “This latest contract builds on several similar orders from the Coastal Group," says Svennevig. "It demonstrates the confidence that the company has in our technology and the high degree of reliability and performance delivered by our subsea cranes.”

Delivery is scheduled between June and December 2015.
