%2019 %12 %09


FINLAND's Cargotec has again won a contract from Volstad Maritime for two active heave-compensated (AHC) offshore cranes, after receiving a similar order from the privately-owned Norwegian specialist operator in April last year.

The two cranes, a 250-tonne MacGregor AHC sub-sea crane and a 15-tonne MacGregor AHC offshore crane, will be fitted to Volstad's new offshore construction vessel (OCV) on order at Bergen Group Fosen shipyard in Norway. The vessel (hull 90) is scheduled for delivery in August 2013, and following this, it will be chartered for sub-sea intervention services.

This contract follows a contract that was secured by Cargotec in April last year for Volstad's hull 89, which is due for delivery from the yard in July this year.

Like its sister ship, Volstad's latest OCV is an ST-259-CD design from Norwegian consultants, Skipsteknisk, and is 125 metres long and 25 metres wide. The vessel is designed to meet the highest environmental standards and Clean Design requirements. It will be classed to Ice-1A.
