MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has secured a new equipment order for four PCTC vessels, to be built at the China Merchants Jinling Shipyard (Nanjing) for Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK Line).

Deliveries are planned to commence during the fourth quarter of 2022 and completed during the fourth quarter of 2023. According to MacGregor, the contract is the result of a longstanding and successful collaboration with NYK Line, recognising its expertise and ability to support NYK Line in both the early phase of projects and throughout the lifecycle.

The order includes a range of electrically operated equipment and encompasses quarter stern ramps and doors, side ramps and doors, internal ramps and covers, internal doors, and liftable car deck. The MacGregor patented Load Monitoring System, which is included, increases the safe working load of the quarter-ramp by up to 50% without adding additional weight.

”We are very pleased that NYK Line has selected us and we are able to help them with the development of environmentally sustainable PCTC solutions,” said Magnus Sjöberg, SVP Merchant Solutions Division, MacGregor.

”We have a longstanding and good collaboration with MacGregor and we regard them as a professional, reliable and innovative solution provider for a more sustainable future,” said Tetsuya Kakinuma, Deputy Manager, Ship Planning Team, Technical Group, NYK Line.
