Cargotec’s MacGregor has received EUR 37 million order from Hornbeck Offshore Services Inc. to deliver four 250-tonne active heave-compensated (AHC) subsea cranes for four multi-purpose supply vessels (MPSV). The cranes will be delivered between fourth quarter 2014 and third quarter 2015. The order is booked in the second quarter 2013 order intake.

“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. “We are pleased that Hornbeck Offshore opted MacGregor’s advanced 250-tonne AHC subsea cranes with operational capability at depths of 3700m suitable for ultra-deepwater operations.”
