Cargotec has secured orders for two 100 tonne active heave-compensated offshore cranes from the wholly-owned subsidiaries of a Malaysian shipbuilding and vessel chartering group, Coastal Contracts Bhd, which is headquartered in Sabah.
The cranes are destined for two 85m newbuild offshore support vessels currently under construction within the group.
"There was strong competition for these new orders," says Frode Grovan, Cargotec Director, Sales and Marketing, Advanced Load Handling.
"We were delighted that Coastal Group opted for our cranes and they will offer the new vessels high-precision reliable performance for a range of demanding offshore operations."
Delivery of the cranes is scheduled within 14 months and they will be manufactured in China.
