To ensure the performance of the customers cranes, MacGregor is introducing an emergency box for electric cranes containing the most critical spare parts that will keep the cranes running. Instead of having to buy all spare parts one by one when the old ones have broken or worn, our customers have clearly indicated the need to buy spares as a package and store it on board their ships, says Mikael Nordin, Product Manager of MacGregor's Competence Centre Cranes. We have had an emergency box for hydraulic cranes in our portfolio for some time already, but we have now gone a step further and developed another one: a box for electric cranes.

MacGregor cares about peoples safety on board: introduces safe personnel handling systems for cranes There are special requirements for personnel handling equipment on board. To guarantee safety on board, MacGregor developed personnel handling system for certain types of cranes in 2012 and has now launched a campaign to promote it. We want to promote our offering and competencies to support our customers who use cranes for lifting people on board ships, says Mikael Nordin, Product Manager in MacGregors Cargo Material Handling competence centre. Classification societies have tightened their rules, among other things, stating that personnel lifting devices must be equipped with dual independent braking systems. All our personnel handling cranes have one brake for cargo handling and another safety brake for personnel handling. Mikael adds: On sailing ships, cranes and winches can be upgraded to follow the news safety rules while the ship is visiting a dock for other reasons, like repair, maintenance and surveys. This means that the ship does not lose any extra sailing days because of our upgrade work which is a great advantage for the shipowner or operator.
