MacGregor receives equipment order for four-LNG powered PCTC vessels of NYK
NYK Line has placed an order with MacGregor, a Cargotec subsidiary, for four LNG-powered PCTC vessels to be constructed at the China Merchants Jinling Shipyard.
”We are very pleased that NYK Line has selected us and we are able to help them with the development of environmentally sustainable PCTC solutions,” commented Magnus Sjöberg, Senior Vice President, Merchant Solutions Division, MacGregor.
Quarter stern ramps and doors, side ramps and doors, internal ramps and covers, internal doors, and a liftable car deck are among the electrically powered items included in the order.
The order includes MacGregor's patented Load Monitoring System, which, according to its creators, increases the quarter-secure ramp's working load by up to 50% without adding weight.
The order will be included in Cargotec's first quarter order intake in 2021, with deliveries beginning in the fourth quarter of 2022 and ending in the fourth quarter of 2023.
In February 2021, the ships were ordered. These four vessels are scheduled to be delivered between 2022 and 2023 and will be used to transport vehicles primarily to and from Europe and/or the Middle East.
WinGD's X-DF2.0 iCER engines will power the ships. It will be the first time that these engines are used.
