Cargotec Oyj: Seven MacGregor linkspans to expand Stockholm's port services

CARGOTEC CORPORATION, PRESS RELEASE 15 MAY 2014 AT 10 AM (EEST)

MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has secured a contract in a bid by tender to
supply seven hydraulically-operated linkspans to the Port of Stockholm in
Sweden. The linkspans have been ordered as part of a port development project
to extend the capabilities of Stockholm's largest harbour, Värtahamnen and
Kapellskär harbour.

Five linkspan units will be installed in Värtahamen and two in Kapellskär. The
contract contains a number of options for further units intended for other
sites within the port.

"The design of the linkspans is based on, and developed from, the best
characteristics of a series of successful deliveries," says Clas Hedelin,
Sales Manager, Port Solutions, RoRo Systems. "These include linkspans for the
Norwegian ports of Langesund, Risavika, Kristiansand, Langesund and Larvik,
as well as the Moroccan port of Tangier."

Deliveries will take place in 2015 and 2016 and all the steel structures will
be CE-marked in accordance with the latest regulations.

By the end of June 2014, any steel structure delivery in the European Union
and the European Economic Area must have a CE mark to signify production to a
consistently high standard. In March this year, MacGregor attained
authorisation to CE mark its steel structures according to the fabrication
quality standard, EN1090-1 - the certification required by all companies that
supply fabricated steel structures. In April MacGregor delivered its first
unit with the new CE mark, a water taxi terminal for the Port of Lysekil in
Sweden.
