Following on from an order in April 2011, Cargotec has won a contract for two active heave-compensated (AHC) offshore cranes from the privately-owned Norwegian specialist operator, Volstad Maritime.

The two cranes, a 250-tonne MacGregor AHC subsea crane and a 15-tonne MacGregor AHC offshore crane, will be fitted to Volstad's new offshore construction vessel (OCV), which is on order at Bergen Group Fosen shipyard in Norway.

The vessel (hull 90) is scheduled for delivery in August 2013. Following this, it will be chartered for subsea intervention services.

The contract follows an identical one that was secured by Cargotec in April last year for Volstad's hull 89, which is due for delivery from the yard in July this year.
