MacGregor A-frames are typically tailor-made to customer's exact vessel and operational requirements and meet the demands for heavy, subsea work in highly-corrosive environments.
Our A-frames are designed to perform a broad range of operations, such as offshore and subsea load handling (anchor handling and plough or trencher operations) and the launch and recovery of special tools and equipment.
A-frame lifting capacities range from 1 to 350 tonnes. They can be delivered as self-contained, self-erecting units for mounting at the stern or either side of a vessel.
- HPU and erecting cylinders
- Multiple wire sheave arrangements available
- Service crane/winches for service and rigging assistance
- HPU integrated into frame
