Two locally-made giant ship-to-shore (STS) cranes have been shipped to Gemalink International Port in the southern Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province for operation this November.

Doosan Heavy Industries Viet Nam (Doosan Vina) said the cargo shipment left the port of Dung Quat Economic Zone (EZ) in the central province of Quang Ngai on Wednesday.

It said the crane shipment came about thanks to great efforts from local workers and South Korean engineers during the COVID-19 pandemic since early this year.

In July, Doosan Vina handed two rail-mounted quayside cranes to the Gemalink international port following six crane orders from Gemadept-CMA CGM.

They were also a series of made-in-Viet Nam super heavy cranes that Doosan Vina manufactured at the factory in the Dung Quat EZ.

Gemalink was designed with 24 giant cranes with the first phase capacity of handling 1.5 million TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units) per year.

Doosan Vina's made-in-Viet Nam heavy industry products such as boilers, desalination plants and cranes have been exported to 35 countries.

To date, 85 cranes manufactured by Doosan Vina have been exported to the world's busiest port systems in Singapore, India, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia as well as major ports in Viet Nam. — VNS
