MacGregor receives large access equipment order for cruise vessel


MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has received a large order for a comprehensive package of access equipment for a cruise vessel, which will be built at Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard in France.

The order was booked into Cargotec’s 2023 second quarter orders received. The vessel is scheduled to be delivered to the shipowner during the fourth quarter of 2025.

MacGregor’s scope of supply encompasses design, hardware and commissioning of lifting and other platforms, shell doors, hatch covers and automatic gangways.

“I’m happy to see the cruise business starting to recover after the Covid pandemic and that the shipowners yet again want to invest in new vessels,” says Magnus Sjöberg, Senior Vice President, Merchant Solutions, MacGregor. “I’m proud to see that the shipowner and Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard trust us in delivering access solutions to this new cruise vessel.”
