MacGregor lands substantial PCTC order

Cargotec subsidiary, MacGregor, has landed two contracts to supply RoRo equipment for 15 pure car and truck carriers (PCTCs). The vessels are to be built in China and South Korea for three different shipowners.

The orders, worth almost EUR 90 million, involve the supply and installation support of RoRo and car deck equipment including quarter ramps, side ramps, deck levels of liftable car deck panels, internal ramps, pilot and bunker doors. MacGregor will also provide deck machinery for some of the ships.

Commenting on the order, Magnus Sjöberg, MacGregor’s senior vice president, Merchant Solutions, said: “The year 2022 has been exceptionally successful for us in the PCTC market, and we are very happy and proud of our customers’ trust in us. We want to be a reliable and strong partner for them, and help them excel in their business.

He continued: “Our successes have been built on our state-of-the-art designs and strong support to the customer starting from the early phases of the projects, and our capability to support them through the whole lifecycle of the vessels worldwide.”

The ships are due for delivery in the two years from the third quarter of 2024.
