MacGregor gets LNG ferry deal

MacGregor, part of Cargotec, said it has secured a new contract from the Meyer Turku Shipyard for a complete turnkey delivery of RoRo cargo access and handling equipment for a RoPax ferry under construction for Estonian ship operator Tallink.

The 49,000gt, 212m long liquefied natural gas dual fuel powered ferry complies with the latest strict regulations for emission control areas, including the Baltic Sea. Designed to carry 2,800 passengers, it will operate on the shuttle route between Tallinn and Helsinki, the company said in a statement.

MacGregor’s RoRo equipment package includes a bow door, bow and stern ramps/doors, front and rampway doors, hoistable and movable ramps, lifting platform, stores hatches, doors for passengers, pilots and bunkering, along with associated hydraulic power packs.

The contract includes design, hardware and installation, with deliveries planned during 2016. The completed vessel is scheduled for delivery in early 2017.
