QUANG NGAI – Doosan Heavy Industries Viet Nam (Doosan Vina) said today they had exported eight rubber-tired gantry cranes (RTGC) to Singapore, bringing the of total exported RTGC cranes to 20.
The latest batch, delivered to the Port of Singapore Authority (PSA), is the third shipment part of the export contract for 36 of the cranes that was signed between Doosan Vina and PSA, the Korean-backed company said.
However, the company did not announce how much the contract was worth.
Each RTGC weighs 245 tons and is 27 meters in height, 11 meters wide and 25 meters long. They are designed for moving the common 40-tonne containers used in worldwide shipping.
The Chemical Processing Equipment Plant (CPE), a unit of Doosan Vina, shipped seven distillation towers last month to the Refining JG Summit Olefins Corporation in the Philippines.
Four other Doosan Vina factories are also involved in several large-scale projects such as the Mong Duong II Thermal Power Plant in Viet Nam, worth US$1.3 billion and the world's biggest desalination project in Saudi Arabia, worth $1.9 billion.
Based in the central province of Quang Ngai, Doosan Vina aims to reach an export turnover of $200 million this year, which would constitute a $126 million jump from 2011.- VNS
