Mumbai: Cargo handling firm MacGregor has received a Eur25m order from India's ABG shipyard for 96 cranes to be fitted to 24 bulk carriers being constructed at the yard, writes Anderimar Shipping News. The handy ships are all on order from Asian and European owners and the order runs from the end of this year into 2013.
MacGregor's Paul Söderstedt said: "This is a significant order for MacGregor. We were able to offer the shipyard an effective crane design that met the vessels' cargo-handling needs. This, along with the consistent support from our local offices in India and Singapore during the negotiation phase, made us successful." [10/06/09]
