MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has been contracted to supply oceanographic winches and deck handling systems to an LNG-fueled research vessel being built by the Fassmer shipyard in Berne, Germany. 

MacGregor equipment deliveries are planned for completion by the end of the first quarter of 2019, while the vessel is scheduled for delivery in 2020.

The LNG-fueled 74 meter long vessel, Atair II, is under construction for the German Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH).

It will operate in the North Sea and the Baltic Sea, conducting hydrographic surveys and wreck search operations in addition to marine environmental monitoring.

The vessel will have a 200 square meters working deck that features laboratories and an air pollution measurement station.
