MacGregor to Provide Equipment for New Research Vessel

MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has signed a contract to supply oceanographic winches and Triplex deck handling systems to a new research vessel being built by the Fassmer shipyard in Berne, Germany.

MacGregor equipment deliveries are planned for completion by the end of the first quarter of 2019.

The new dual-fuel (LNG) 74 meters vessel, Atair II, is under construction for the German Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH).

It will operate in the North Sea and the Baltic Sea, conducting hydrographic surveys and wreck search operations in addition to marine environmental monitoring.

The vessel will have a 200 m2 working deck that features laboratories and an air pollution measurement station.

“To develop the most value-adding solution for this state-of-the-art research vessel, MacGregor has worked closely with the shipyard,” said Esko Karvonen, vice president, Smart Ocean Technology, MacGregor. “This cooperation not only means that our systems meet the needs of the operator, but ensures its safe and reliable operation.
