Since the ? rst installation in 1969 on board the M/V Missouri Tugboat, MarineFAST Sewage Treat- ment Systems have been installed on myriad workboats and offshore facilities to provide total sewage treat- ment, pretreatment, and (in some cases) water reuse opportunities. Scienco/FAST takes pride in the fact that these certi? ed, Type II Marine Sanitation Devices (MSD) and Systems are installed on some of the ‘greenest’ ships in the world.
MacGregor’s Lashings Storage System
MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has developed a new 40-foot ? at rack loose lashings storage system designed to make better use of available deck space. MacGregor said its new ? at rack system meets ISO standards and can accommodate a total of 16 storage bins that are color-coded for twistlocks, midlocks, stackers and damaged products. Two ? at racks stacked on top of each other and connected with twistlocks are the equivalent dimensions of a high cube container (9.5-ft.). Flat rack is operated as a standard container and other containers can be loaded on top of it. As usual for ? at racks, it should only be lifted from the top corner ? ttings with a spreader lifting frame or from the bottom corner ? ttings with suitable lifting gear.
