MacGregor has joined a consortium of leading marine industry players which are collaborating in developing new levels of performance and environmental efficiency for the container sector.

The consortium, which is led by Dubai-based Zaitoun Green Shipping L.L.C. (ZGS), also aims at creating a new business model for the industry.

"The industry has a lot of potential particularly stemming from underperforming systems and processes," said Tommi Keskilohko, director, Customer Innovations, Cargo Handling, MacGregor.

"We need to put the cargo back on the centre again," Mr Keskilohko continues. "We are happy to join this consortium where each member company has an important role to play in developing and building a state-of-the-art container ship."

Expertise

For its part in the collaboration project, MacGregor is offering up the PlusPartner concept which is helping customers to maximise the cargo carrying capacity of containers on board their vessels, helping to make assets more profitable and eco-efficient.

In addition to ZGS and MacGregor, other consortium companies are Wärtsilä, Gaztransport & Technigaz (GTT), Carina Solutions (C4), Winterthur Gas & Diesel (WinGD) and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Marine Machinery & Equipment (MHI-MME).
