Cargotec’s MacGregor will supply loose lashings equipment for twelve 19,200 teu container vessels under construction in South Korea for an European owner. The equipment is planned for delivery during 2016.
The ultra-large container ships are being built at two shipyards, six each at Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) and Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI).
In addition to the loose lashing system, MacGregor is also delivering hatch covers and fixed lashing gear to the vessels.
– MacGregor is constantly working to increase the cargo system productivity of large container ships, says Tommi Keskilohko, Director, Customer Solutions at MacGregor. – Adding loose lashings from the same supplier ensures that the lashings are designed to fit the rest of the cargo system in an optimised way and will help the vessels to reach their maximum cargo efficiency, flexibility and safety, adds Mr. Keskilohko.
