The MacGregor division of Cargotec has received an order for four large offshore cranes for a new 145 metre dive support vessel currently being built by Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industry in China for UK-based operator Sealion Shipping.
The cranes include a 400 tonne active heave-compensated crane capable of deploying 3,000 metres of wire rope. Sealion is an offshore support company that manages and operates offshore support vessels for Toisa. The new vessel is equipped for worldwide operations in the oil and gas sector and on ultra-deepwater projects. Delivery is planned for early 2017.
