11 March 2021 – MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has secured a new equipment order for 4 PCTC vessels. The vessels will be built at the China Merchants Jinling Shipyard (Nanjing) Co. Ltd for Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK Line). The order is booked into Cargotec’s first quarter 2021 order intake, with deliveries planned to commence during the fourth quarter of 2022 and completed during the fourth quarter of 2023.
This contract is the result of a longstanding and successful collaboration between MacGregor and NYK Line, where MacGregor`s expertise and ability to support NYK Line in both the early phase of projects and throughout the lifecycle is fully recognised.
