South Korea's Doosan Heavy Industries Viet Nam (Doosan Vina) has completed the erection of two super-heavy STS (ship-to-shore) cranes. The cranes were installed at the Gemalink port of the Gemadept - CMA CGM in Quang Ngai Province, after eight months of delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Doosan Vina said the two STS cranes, and six other STS cranes supplied by Doosan Vina in 2020, will help improve loading and unloading efficiency, exploiting the full design of the Gemalink port in the southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau.

Each STS can reach up to 70m into the sea and can lift the cargo of 65 tonnes from large mother vessels up to 200,000 DWT.

To support Quang Ngai province in the fight against COVID-19, Doosan Vina donated nearly VND2.3 billion (about US$100,000) for the province to purchase medical equipment for its third field hospital for treating COVID-19 patients.

The donation was part of a policy of corporate social responsibility from Doosan Vina.

Doosan Vina is a high-tech industrial complex in the Dung Quat Economic Zone, employing 2,000 Vietnamese workers and engineers.

Locally-made mega infrastructure products include boilers for thermal power plants; desalination plants that turn seawater into freshwater; cranes at ports and modularisation and structural steel for refineries, buildings and infrastructure developments that have been exported worldwide with a turnover of $2.4 billion. — VNS
