Finland-headquartered MacGregor will supply oceanographic winches and Triplex deck handling systems to a new research vessel being built by the Fassmer shipyard in Berne, Germany.

The LNG dual-fuel Atair II is under construction for the German Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) and will conduct hydrographic surveys, wreck search operations and marine environmental monitoring in the North Sea and Baltic Sea.

"To develop the most value-adding solution for this state-of-the-art research vessel, MacGregor has worked closely with the shipyard," said Esko Karvonen, vice president of Smart Ocean Technology at MacGregor. "This cooperation not only means that our systems meet the needs of the operator, but ensures its safe and reliable operation.”

The 74m long vessel will have a 200m2 working deck featuring laboratories and an air pollution measurement station.

MacGregor’s equipment is due to be delivered in early 2019.
