MacGregor Cranes is a division of the Cargotec Corporation. Much of its recent activity has been driven by shipbuilding projects in China, Korea and Singapore where MacGregor has recently won orders for over 40 cranes for various cargo-handling purposes.

It has also received orders to deliver 15 GL cranes for five new buildings at Szczecin Shipyard, Poland. MacGregor’s production partner, Remontowa, will manufacture the cranes in Poland.

The US Navy has so far awarded MacGregor three out of four options for upgrading the cranes on board its Hauge class vessels. Each ship will have two twin-sets of TGL4026-2. One twin-set of cranes has a lifting capacity of 80t, and when combined in a quad-lift they can hoist 150t.

Cargoport in Venezuela has ordered four K3028-4HD cranes with eccentric platforms. These will be installed on a transloading ship and be used for trans-shipping iron ore and other products off the Orinoco river mouth.

These cranes are designed for heavy duties, and will be manufactured at MacGregor’s Chinese partner Lüzhou.
