Sallaum’s first PCTCs to get MacGregor RoRo equipment
MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has been contracted to deliver RoRo equipment for two dual-fuel LNG pure car and truck carriers (PCTC) on order by Sallaum Lines. The RoRo shipping specialist has ordered the two vessels at the Fujian Mawei Shipbuilding, and the two vessels are the company’s very first newbuilds.
The vessels are scheduled to be delivered to the shipowner between the fourth quarter of 2024 and the second quarter of 2026.
MacGregor’s scope of supply encompasses design, supply and installation support of RoRo and car deck equipment to the ordered vessels. This includes electrically operated external and internal ramps, liftable car decks, covers and doors for the two new PCTC vessels.
“We are excited to partner with MacGregor for the development of our first new buildings. Their extensive experience and expertise in providing state-of-the-art RoRo equipment are crucial for Sallaum Lines as we continue to expand our fleet and maintain our commitment to efficient and environmentally-friendly transportation solutions. This collaboration further strengthens our position in the global RoRo cargo shipping market,” says Puneet Arora, technical manager of Sallaum Lines
“I’m happy that the long cooperation with Fujian Mawei Shipbuilding Ltd and new collaboration with Sallaum Lines have led us to become the supplier for the RoRo equipment for Sallaum Lines’ first ever newbuildings. We are delighted to be part of this milestone. Our proven and reliable RoRo solutions as well as our global service network have been proven to be important for our globally operating customers,” says Magnus Sjöberg, Senior Vice President, Merchant Solutions, MacGregor.
