MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has won Pusnes deck machinery orders for a new series of 400 000 DWT very large ore carriers (VLOCs) under construction at Chinese shipyard, Qingdao Beihai Shipbuilding Heavy Industries.

The orders are booked in Cargotec's 3Q16 order intake.

MacGregor will deliver high-pressure hydraulically-operated deck machinery based on Pusnes designs.

"The equipment is simple to operate, well-proven and known for its high-quality," said Esko Karvonen, Head of Smart Ocean Technology division at MacGregor. "For example, the windlasses are equipped with MacGregor's proven dual-motor installation, which ensures high capacity and reliability."

Construction of the valemax vessels is part of an agreement between Brazilian mining company, Vale and the Chinese government.
