HELSINKI, Finland – Volstad Marine has contracted Cargotec to supply two active heave-compensated (AHC) offshore cranes.
The 250-metric ton (275-ton) MacGregor AHC subsea crane and 15-MT (16.5-ton) MacGregor AHC offshore crane will be fitted to a new offshore construction vessel (OCV) on order at Bergen Group Fosen shipyard in Norway.
This is an ST-259-CD Skipsteknisk design vessel, 125 m (410 ft) long and 25 m (82 ft) wide. It is due to be delivered in August 2013 and will be chartered for subsea intervention services.
Last April Cargotec won an identical order for Volstad’s hull 89 OCV, due for delivery this July.
