In October, Cargotec received a large order to deliver MacGregor RoRo cargo access equipment for four 45, 000 dwt container/RoRo vessels for Italian container shipping specialist, Ignazio Messina & C. S.p.A. The ships will be built at the STX Jinhae shipyard in Korea and the MacGregor RoRo equipment will be delivered between the last quarter of 2013 and the second quarter of 2014.
