The PlusPartner concept – design defined by cargo


MacGregor’s PlusPartner concept puts the cargo handling system at the forefront of shipbuilding processes. It is a whole-ship approach with close customer cooperation that starts from the ship designing process. This allows an analysis of loading requirements on individual components, and of system alignment with the ship’s hull design.

Forward-thinking PlusPartner cargo handling systems improve specified loading abilities. With PlusPartner, customers can increase their overall earning potential by focusing on maximising cargo carrying capabilities and the system efficiency of their ships.

MacGregor introduced the PlusPartner concept in 2013. In 2015, the United Arab Shipping Company’s first ultra-large container vessel entered into service, equipped with MacGregor PlusPartner high-efficiency cargo handling system. The system simultaneously minimises emissions per TEU carried and maximises payload potential and operational efficiency.
