MacGregor signs Load Line agreement

MacGregor signs Load Line agreement

(Posted on 10/02/21)

MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has signed a two year OnWatch Scout Predict agreement with Load Line Marine SA to support operation of their fleet equipped with MacGregor merchant cranes.

The order was booked into Cargotec’s fourth quarter of 2020 order intake, with installation and testing starting on board four vessels the first semester of 2021.

By increasing the flow of information from ship to shore and applying artificial intelligence and technical expertise to detect patterns that indicate a risk of failure, On Watch Scout enables equipment availability to be maximised and maintenance activities to be more efficiently and cost-effectively planned.

"With our focus on providing customers with consistently high performance standards, we are confident that MacGregor’s OnWatch Scout service will enable the operation of our fleet to be further enhanced,” says Mr. Yannis Voulgaris, Technical & Purchase Manager Load Line Marine. “Monitoring and analysing crane performance data that is streamed directly from the vessels will enable us to make better-informed decisions and reduce problem solving time.”

“We are very pleased that our strong relationship with Load Line Marine and their continuing trust in MacGregor’s service support capabilities has resulted in this OnWatch Scout agreement." says John Carnall, Senior Vice President, Global Services Division, MacGregor.

MacGregor is a leader in intelligent maritime cargo and load handling with a strong portfolio of MacGregor, Hatlapa, NMF, Porsgrunn, Pusnes, Rapp, Triplex and TTS products, services and solutions, all designed to perform with the sea.

Shipbuilders, shipowners and operators are able to optimise the lifetime profitability, safety, reliability and environmental sustainability of their operations by working in close cooperation with MacGregor. www.macgregor.com

MacGregor is part of Cargotec. Cargotec's (Nasdaq Helsinki: CGCBV) sales in 2020 totalled approximately EUR 3.3 billion and it employs around 11,500 people worldwide.
