Cargotec Corporation: World's first subsea mining vessel to be equipped with MacGregor subsea cranes


MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has been awarded a contract by Fujian Mawei
Shipbuilding Limited for two subsea knuckle boom cranes to be installed on
the world's first seabed mining vessel. Delivery of the cranes is scheduled
for Q1/2017. The order was booked into first quarter 2015 order intake.

The 227m production support vessel has a beam of 40m. It has been designed by
Singapore's SeaTech Solutions for Dubai-based owner Marine Assets Corporation
(MAC). Following delivery at the end of 2017, it will operate under long-term
charter to Canadian seafloor exploration company Nautilus Minerals Inc.

The MacGregor order consists of two knuckle boom cranes; a 200t active
heave-compensation (AHC) subsea crane with the capability to operate to a
depth of 2,500m, and a smaller 100t subsea crane.

Mike Johnston
, CEO of Nautilus Minerals, says, "We are very pleased to have such a world
class supplier providing key equipment for use on our Production Support
Vessel. The cranes are an essential component in ensuring operations can be
performed safely across all of our large working deck areas. We look forward
to reporting on the progress of this equipment as we move closer to
production in 2018."

exciting and prestigious new vessel," says Tom Svennevig, Vice President,
