"Made in Vietnam" cargo container cranes arrive at India

Monday, 17 July 2017 02:12

After nearly 30 days at sea, three 1,400-tonne rail mounted quayside cranes (RMQC), also known as ship-to-shore cargo container cranes, have safely reached the port of Bharat Mumbai Container Terminal, India.

The cranes were designed and manufactured at Doosan Vina’s heavy industry complex and then shipped from the company’s dedicated port in Quang Ngai, Vietnam on May 19.

Each of the three RMQC’s weighs 1,400 tonnes, has a cargo boom of 144 metres, stands 84 metres high and 26 metres wide. The cranes can handle 65-tonne containers efficiently, safely, and profitably. Additionally, because they were fully assembled prior to shipment, the cranes will soon be fully operational.

Located at India’s largest container port, BMCT has 16.5-metre deep berths and docks that are 2,000 metres in length. BMCT is well-connected to key markets in India by a network of highways and railroads serving the 4.8 million TEU port.

Since Doosan Vina’s grand opening in May 2009, the company has manufactured and shipped 68 giant cargo container cranes to customers around the world.
