LARGEST ORDER: Cavotec will manufacture and deliver 39 MoorMaster MM400L (Lock) units for 13 locks at St Lawrence

Cavotec has won three MoorMaster orders totalling more than €28m for use at lock, roro ferry and bulk handling applications in Australia, Canada and Denmark.

One of which is for the St Lawrence Seaway in Canada, which will be the largest to date for MoorMaster and one of the biggest projects secured in the history of the group.

Under the terms of the St Lawrence agreement, Cavotec will manufacture and deliver 39 MoorMaster MM400L (Lock) units for 13 locks and related rail structures on which the units will be mounted. Cavotec engineers will also oversee delivery up until the end of 2016, installation and commissioning.

Cavotec’s equipment will mean more vessels will be able to traverse the route, which forms an essential trade link between the Atlantic Ocean and the Great Lakes, because they will no longer have to equip their vessels with Seaway specific fittings.

The other orders came from Australia where Cavotec has been contracted to to support the installation and commissioning of eight MoorMaster MM200B bulk units by dredging expert Jan de Nul at a bulk handling application.

Lastly, from Denmark where two MM400 units will be used in conjunction with a new build LNG passenger and car ferry that serves the route between Hov in Jutland and Saelvig on Samsoe island.
