Swiss container shipping major MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company has signed a contract with MacGregor and Guangzhou Wenchong Dockyard to upgrade cargo systems on six 16,000 TEU containerships owned and operated by the company.

The upgrades will be implemented during drydocking in 2020, the parties said without revealing 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,” Magnus Sjöberg, Senior Vice President, Cargo Handling and RoRo, MacGregor, said.

“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,” Giuseppe Gargiulo Head of Department, New Building, Dry Dock and Conversions, MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company, concluded.
