The "Cargo Boost" orders have been booked into MacGregor’s Q2 2019 order intake and the upgrades will be implemented during drydocking in 2020. The parties did not disclose any financial details of the contract.

 

"The objective was to determine the best solution for the operating profile and to deliver a modern, efficient and environmentally-friendly upgraded cargo system," said Magnus Sjöberg, SVP, Cargo Handling and RoRo, MacGregor, a Cargotec BU.

Giuseppe Gargiulo Head of Department, New Building, Dry Dock and Conversions, MSC, said: "MacGregor’s Cargo Boost is a good example of how we can drive down the energy required to transport each individual container and reduce emissions per transported TEU."
