MacGregor, part of Cargotec, said it has secured an order to provide deck handling solutions to two towing, salvage and rescue ships (T-ATS) class vessels to be built at Gulf Island Shipyards, a subsidiary of Gulf Island Fabrication.

MacGregor's scope of supply includes deck machinery, towing winch, traction winch, shark jaws, towing pins/pop-up pins, stern roller, offshore crane and other accessories.

This order represents the fourth and fifth shipsets that will be supplied to the new Navajo-class T-ATS class, which will be deployed for worldwide naval service including open-ocean towing, supporting salvage operations and submarine rescue missions. The ships will replace three T-ATF 166 and two T-ARS 50 class ships, which reach the end of their expected service lives starting in 2020.

The order was booked into Cargotec's second quarter order intake, with deliveries planned during the last quarter of 2021 through to the first quarter of 2022, the company said.
