A CONTRACT signed between Cargotec's MacGregor and Guangzhou Wenchong Dockyard has paved the way for the upgrade of cargo systems on six 16,000-TEU containerships owned and operated by Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC).

These Cargo Boost orders will be implemented during drydocking in 2020. The three parties to the agreement didn't disclose any further contractual details.



MacGregor and MSC have together defined and developed the cargo system solution for these vessels. 'The objective was to determine the best solution for the operating profile and to deliver a modern, efficient and environmentally-friendly upgraded cargo system,' explained MacGregor's senior vice president of cargo handling and roro, Magnus Sjoberg.



MSC said in a joint statement that it is 'committed to promoting a sustainable business model that goes far beyond a 'business as usual' approach, remaining true to its roots and its core family values.'



'MacGregor's Cargo Boost is a good example how we can drive down the energy required to transport each individual container and reduce emissions per transported TEU,' said MSC head of new building, dry dock and conversions, Giuseppe Gargiulo.
