Cargotec Corporation: MacGregor signs Triplex AHTS equipment deal with GRUPO CBO

CARGOTEC CORPORATION, PRESS RELEASE, 20 APRIL 2015 AT 10 AM (EEST)

MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has secured a contract with the Brazilian
shipowner and shipbuilder Grupo CBO. The contract is to supply Triplex deck
handling equipment and cranes for four customised Havyard 843 anchor handling
tug supply vessels (AHTS). The order was booked into first quarter 2015 order
intake.

The 81.5m Havyard 843 is a modern anchor-handling vessel with a maximum speed
of 16 knots. It has a 400 tonne anchor handling winch and accommodation for
up to 30. This Havyard design will be adapted to meet the particular
requirements of Brazilian energy company, Petrobras. Two vessels will be
built at Grupo CBO's Estaleiro Aliança yard and two at the Estaleiro Oceana
yard.

Under the contract with CBO, MacGregor will provide each vessel with two sets
of Triplex shark jaws (H-700) and guide pins (S-200), one cargo rail crane
(KNC-60) and one knuckle boom deck crane (KN-150).

"We are delighted to sign another contract with CBO, further growing our good
relationship," says Even Arne Kippernes, sales manager for Triplex products
at MacGregor. "The Triplex shark jaws and guide pins are market leading
products. They will help to ensure safe working deck operations on the new
vessels; the jaws have a unique quick release system and, when not in use,
they lie flush with the deck. The combination of Triplex cranes will provide
very flexible, safe and reliable lifting capabilities."
