MacGregor Develops Cargo System for MSC Boxship
Cargotec company MacGregor has developed a new cargo system for one of the world’s largest container ships, the MSC Gülsün.
The ship was built by South Korean company Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) and delivered in July of this year, having a capacity of more than 23,000 TEU, a length of 400 meters and width of 61.5 meters, and is the first of 11 ultra-large containerships MSC has on order, six of which are being supplied by SHI. Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering will construct the other five vessels for MSC.
MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company Newbuildings leader Giuseppe Gargiulo said: “As our fleet grows and technology develops, we want to make sure that our strategic investments are focused on maximizing the ship’s performance. Through our close cooperation with MacGregor, we are able to develop new solutions that are of mutual benefit and help us to grow together.”
