Cargotec Corporation: MacGregor strengthens its heavy-lift market share


MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has strengthened its position in the heavy-lift
market by confirming an important new contract to deliver twelve 450-tonne
capacity heavy-lift cranes for six Ecolift F900 vessels. The 13,300 dwt
vessels are being built by two Chinese shipyards, Hudong and Huangpu
Wenchong, for long-term charter to US operator Intermarine. Options remain
for a further four vessels. The order was booked into fourth quarter 2015
order intake.

"This is a significant contract for MacGregor, representing important next
steps into the heavy-lift market," says Mattias Sundström, Sales and
Marketing Director for General Cargo Ships at MacGregor. "MacGregor is also
delivering deck machinery from our Hatlapa range, as well as the Porsgrunn
steering gear for these vessels," he continues.

"This order was received together with our partner Luzhou and MacGregor
equipment was chosen because we were able to provide an efficient and high
quality solution for our customer and can provide total lifecycle support
worldwide," Mr Sundström continues. Each vessel will feature two cranes with
a combined lifting capacity of 900 tonnes.

"The vessels are an efficient upgrade to our existing bridge-forward F-Class
ships. They have the advantage of better stability, larger holds, improved
cranes and reduced consumption," said Frank Fischer, Managing Director of
Tonnage Procurement, Intermarine, LLC.

The vessels will all be owned by China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC)
Leasing. Germany's Hammonia Reederei subsidiary, Peter Döhle, will be
responsible for technical shipmanagement.

Delivery of the vessels will begin in the summer of 2017 and continue
throughout 2018. Hudong will build four vessels with options for two more.
Huangpu Wenchong will build two vessels, also with options for an additional
two. Crane deliveries start at the end of 2016.
