“Made in Vietnam” cranes shipped to Saudi Arabia

December 21, 2016 | 11:37
After eight months of design, manufacturing, and inspection, Doosan Vina’s Material Handling Systems Shop on December 18 completed loading and shipped eight Rubber Tired Gantry Cranes (RTGC) to Saudi Global Ports (SGP).

The shipment arrived a month ahead of schedule. The purchase of eight RTGC for SGP was signed between Doosan Vina and SGP on March 4, 2016. Each of the cranes weighs 155 tonnes, is 29 metres high, 27.6 metres long, and 5.6 metres wide.

They are designed to load 40-tonne cargo containers onto trucks for transit to customers or to move containers around the port. These eight cranes raise the total number of “Made in Vietnam” cargo container cranes to 65.

The cranes are expected to arrive in Dammam City, after three weeks of transit. Dammam City is a key gateway to the Arabian Gulf, a major economic and commercial hub of the SGP system.
