Update: July, 23/2012 - 10:22

HCM CITY — International Transportation and Trading Join Stock Co last Wednesday bought 12 cranes worth some VND600 billion (US$28.8 million) from Germany's Kocks Krane and Finland's Cargotec for its ITC International Port in HCM City's District 9.

Kocks will supply four 40-tonne ship-to-shore cranes and eight Rubber Tire Gantry (RTG) cranes of the same capacity in all, delivering half of them in the first quarter of next year.

According to the port operator, the machines use "green technology," running on electricity instead of oil.

Besides, they also generate electricity and reduce consumption by over 30 per cent, thus also providing a competitive advantage.-VNS
