MacGregor subsea crane contract
MacGregor's 250 tonne SWL active heave compensated (AHC) subsea crane
Cargotec’s MacGregor has won a contract to deliver a 250 tonne SWL active heave compensated (AHC) subsea crane for the construction vessel 'Island Intervention'.
The 120m vessel, operated by the US/Norwegian partnership of Edison Chouest Offshore and Island Offshore, is being refitted with the crane to allow for extra lifting capability. It currently only has a lift capability of 140 tonnes.
“The vessel simply needs a bigger crane for the jobs that it undertakes. The order confirms the trend that we see of subsea modules getting larger and heavier," said Frode Grøvan, Advanced Load Handling, MacGregor.
Island Intervention is currently operating in the North Sea in the offshore construction market.
MacGregor says that with retrofit projects such as this, downtime is kept to a minimum.
