Cargotec subsidiary, MacGregor, has signed a five-year service agreement with Norwegian ferry operator Color Line.
This agreement is an extension to previous contracts between MacGregor and Color Line but now includes all vessels in the fleet together with the company’s Norwegian and Danish terminals.
This latest contract is effective from now until 2027.
Under the terms of the contract, there are two annual inspections (pre-dock and pre-season) of the ro-ro access equipment and steering gear on seven vessels and five linkspans for five years.
In addition, maintenance activities were specified for each vessel.
By introducing annual inspections, Color Line will know the vessels technical status, as well as maintenance cost of the equipment fitted on board the entire fleet and the linkspans.
“We have always had a very good relationship and collaboration with MacGregor. This new service agreement between Color Line and MacGregor will give us the security we need and the ability to plan for detailed maintenance over the next five years,” explained Andre Thoresen, Director for Marine Operations, Color Line.
“We are proud of the high level of collaboration we have had with Color Line over many years. This third consecutive service agreement between Color Line and MacGregor proves that our relationship is close and solid,” added John Carnall, Senior Vice President, Global Services Solutions, MacGregor.
“Color Line has a high focus on critical equipment and, together with MacGregor, they are now able to continue to secure the uptime for their fleet and linkspans,” he added.
