MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has been selected to supply ro-ro equipment for a LNG-powered vessel being built by Flensburger Schiffbau-Gesellschaft (FSG) for the Tasmanian-based Australian shipping company, SeaRoad, scheduled to be delivered in the last quarter of 2023.
MacGregor’s scope of supply encompasses design, fabrication and installation of a large stern ramp and ramp cover, with capacity for heavy cargo with a unit weight of up to 100t. The ramp cover features MacGregor patented soft flaps that minimise both noise and wear.
MacGregor was selected as a reliable supplier with a proven track record of meeting the builder’s quality standards and need for punctual deliveries. Leaving the installation to MacGregor will allow FSG to focus on its core activities and securing delivery of the vessel to SeaRoad.
Magnus Sjöberg, SVP Merchant Solutions, MacGregor, said: “We are very pleased to continue the close and long-standing relationship with FSG by delivering, once more, high quality RoRo equipment for SeaRoad. The skills of our experienced installation team are recognised to be an important part of the delivery, which we are especially proud of.”
Patrick Guarino, COO SeaRoad, said: “This continues a long-standing relationship with MacGregor who have previously supplied SeaRoad vessels. SeaRoad is always finding new ways to enhance our logistics solutions and we are very happy to be working again with MacGregor for our new vessel. MacGregor’s equipment is robust and ideally suited to our hard-working Bass Strait vessels.”
