MacGregor, MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company and Guangzhou Wenchong Dockyard have signed a contract to upgrade the cargo systems on six 16,000 TEU containerships owned and operated by MSC.

These Cargo Boost orders will be booked into MacGregor`s second quarter 2019 order intake and the upgrades will be implemented during drydocking in 2020. The parties have agreed not to disclose any further contractual details.

MacGregor and MSC have together defined and developed the cargo system solution for these vessels. "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. 

MSC is committed to promoting a sustainable business model that goes far beyond a 'business as usual' approach, remaining true to its roots and its core family values. "MacGregor's Cargo Boost is a good example how we can drive down the energy required to transport each individual container and reduce emissions per transported TEU,” said Giuseppe Gargiulo, Head of Department, New Building, Dry Dock and Conversions, MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company.
