Cargotec Oyj: MacGregor adds steering control system "Hebe" to the Hatlapa range

CARGOTEC CORPORATION, PRESS RELEASE 13 MAY 2014 AT 10 AM (EEST)

MacGregor, part of Cargotec, presents a new addition to its Hatlapa product
range: the steering control system, Hebe. It will be offered as an integrated
part of the company's Hatlapa range of steering gear solutions and its
inclusion will deliver operational and equipment compatability benefits for
customers. The name Hebe for the steering control system follows the
tradition of naming Hatlapa's steering gear products after Greek gods and
goddesses, Hebe is the goddess of youth.

"Selling an integrated steering gear package affords several important
advantages," says Jörg Tollmien, Head of Sales for MacGregor's Hatlapa
products. "Sourcing a number of linked products from a single company helps
shipyards simplify their supply chains. Minimising the number of suppliers
also makes it much easier for shipowners to manage their servicing
requirements throughout the equipment's lifetime."

"The lower the number of interfaces that have to be handled by the yard the
better," he continues. "This approach eliminates potential problems with
equipment compatibility. The control system and hydraulic actuator must be
combined in the right way, and who better to do this job than the steering
gear manufacturer? The systems are designed to be fully mutually compatible
and they work extremely well together."

"Hebe main steering control systems are designed for operation from nominal
24V DC or 110/230/440V AC power supplies and are suitable for virtually all
SOLAS vessel types and high speed craft," says Carsten Pump, Hatlapa steering
gear specialist at MacGregor. "They can also offer cost effective control
solutions for smaller non-SOLAS units such as workboats and patrol craft.

"The modular aspect of the Hebe series provides a flexible approach to
customised control requirements for single and multiple rudders - including
operator selectable independent or synchronous operating mode facilities if
appropriate - and can also be configured to interface with Azimuth steering
pods and steering jets."

The Hatlapa steering gear portfolio comprises four-cylinder ram-type steering
gear up to 8,893 kNm, two-cylinder ram-type steering gear up to 950 kNm,
rotary vane-type steering gear up to 1,100 kNm, twin-rudder steering gear,
compact piston type steering gear and rudder carriers.

"The Hebe system is also compatible with MacGregor's Porsgrunn steering gear,"
notes Steinar Eliassen, responsible for Porsgrunn steering gear. Porsgrunn
rotary vane-type steering gear has a torque range of between 600 and 5,850
kNm.
