Modern gantry cranes gives Hai Phong port a lift

HA NOI (VNS)— A system of four rubber-tyred gantry (RTG) cranes and a new container station have recently been put into operation at the Tan Cang Dinh Vu Port in the northern city of Hai Phong.

This upgrade is part of the port's modernisation scheme to increase its capacity so it can meet the growing demand for cargo transport and reach international standards in the near future.

With a total investment of VND100 billion (US$4.76 million), the four RTG cranes manufactured by Japan's TCM Corporation were completed and put into service along with a new 196,250-square metre container station.

The new system will enable the port to manage container goods more effectively and increase its capacity. — VNS
