Cargotec’s MacGregor receives USD 77 million order for high efficiency cargo handling solutions from Hyundai Heavy Industries

MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has received an order worth USD 77 million for optimised cargo handling systems for five A-14-series and five A-18-series container vessels from Hyundai Heavy Industries Co Ltd in South Korea.The 14,000 TEU and 18,000 TEU ships are built for the United Arab Shipping Company (UASC) and they are scheduled for delivery between 2014 and 2015. The shipyard holds options for an additional five A-14-vessels and one A-18-vessel.

These new series of container ships will feature optimised MacGregor cargo handling solutions designed to maximise cargo carrying capability and operational efficiency. The MacGregor cargo handling system comprises hatch covers, a comprehensive lashing system and product software «LashmateTM».

«A five-year extended MacGregor Onboard Care (MOC) agreement and a five-year functional guarantee are included in the contract,» notes Jari Nieminen Sales Director, MacGregor Dry Cargo. «Over this timeframe, to verify the benefits of this optimised solution and to maximise the utilisation of the system’s potential, we will conduct cargo system performance analysis and support UASC through a training programme, maintenance and spare parts services and advanced logistics for loose lashings. «This level of support is developed to allow UASC to focus on its key business,» Mr Nieminen adds.

«Early involvement in a project provides a win-win situation,» says Ari Viitanen, Director, MacGregor Customer Solutions. «For these ships, the cargo system has been designed as an integrated element, and as a result, we have been able to maximise the number of payload TEUs onboard, which increases profitability and reduces environmental impact by minimising emissions per TEU carried.»

Prosafe SE: Prosafe firms up orders for semi-submersible accommodation vessels at COSCO

Reference is made to the announcement on 7 November 2013 regarding the Letter of Intent entered into with COSCO (Qidong) Offshore Co., Ltd. for the engineering, procurement and construction of two semi-submersible accommodation vessels, with options for four further units. Prosafe has now completed firm turnkey contracts with the yard. The vessels will be the most advanced and flexible units for worldwide operations excluding Norway, and will be ready for operations in 2016.

The units will be of Gusto MSC’s Ocean 500 design, and will be equipped with 500 beds, DP3 station keeping systems, 10-point chain mooring and 300 tonne cranes. This will allow for operations in both DP and anchored mode, providing maximum cost efficiency and flexibility.

The contracts are in excess of USD 200 million for each of the two vessels. The vessels will be financed through cash flow from operations, existing debt commitments and new debt facilities.

The two new vessels reinforce Prosafe’s position as world leader in offshore accommodation, in line with the company’s long-term industrial strategy. Prosafe’s continued objective is to remain cost-effective in terms of both construction and future capital expenditure and to own and operate the most versatile fleet for year-round worldwide operations.

The vessels will be named Safe Notos and Safe Eurus, joining Prosafe’s other newbuilds Safe Boreas and Safe Zephyrus, all named after the gods of wind in Greek mythology.

Aker Solutions Sells Well-Intervention Services Business to EQT

22 November 2013 – Aker Solutions agreed today to sell its well-intervention services business area to EQT, a Swedish private equity fund, for an enterprise value of NOK 4 billion.

The agreement includes an earn-out provision where Aker Solutions will receive 25 percent of any internal rate of return exceeding 12 percent a year on EQT’s equity investment. Aker Solutions will book a gain before any earn-out of between NOK 1.8 billion and NOK 1.9 billion from the transaction, which is predominantly structured as a share sale.

«The sale is part of a strategy to increase our focus on the deepwater and subsea oil-services markets, where Aker Solutions is well-positioned,» said Øyvind Eriksen, executive chairman of Aker Solutions. «The well-intervention services business has limited synergies with the rest of the company and will be better able to develop its full potential with EQT as the owner.»

The business provides services that optimise flows from oil reservoirs. It is strongly positioned within wireline tractor services, which are used to transport well-intervention equipment along horizontal wells, as well as coiled tubing. Its main markets are in the UK and Norway.

The division has about 1,500 employees in Europe, Asia, the US and the Middle East. In 2012, it had revenue of NOK 2.2 billion and earnings before interest, tax depreciation and amortisation of NOK 401 million. Aker Solutions will remain involved in the development of the well-intervention services business through board representation. Rolf Leknes, who heads the division, will on completion of the transaction remain with the business for a limited period and in a different capacity to ensure a smooth hand-over to the new owner.
«Rolf has done an outstanding job in developing the well-intervention services business and improving its financial performance,» Eriksen said. «He will be invaluable in ensuring continued strong operations in the transition period.»

The transaction’s equity value purchase price is NOK 3.4 billion, based on an enterprise value of NOK 4 billion as of 30 June 2013. Including repayment of intercompany debt, Aker Solutions will receive a cash settlement on completion slightly in excess of NOK 4 billion.

The transaction is expected to be completed around the end of 2013, pending clearance from Norwegian competition authorities.
