Each crane has a weight of 160 tonnes and is 37m high, 28m long and 13m wide. It is designed to handle 41-tonne containers.

The “Made-in-Vietnam” cranes were ordered by Krishnapatnam Port Co. Ltd of India.

These are the first rubber-tyred cranes manufactured by Doosan Vietnam.

In March, Doosan Vietnam also exported three rail-mounted quay cranes to India.

They are part of an order of 12 cranes requested by India-based Bharat Mumbai Container Terminals Private Limited, to deal with substantial throughput at its unit in the Jawaharlal Nehru Port (JNPT) in Mumbai. So far, a total of nine units have been exported to India.

The export is a key project of Doosan Vina, which has been prioritised for development by the Vietnamese Government.

The three rail-mounted quay cranes have a total weight of 4,440 tonnes. Each crane is 73.8m high, 143m long and 26m wide. Each one is designed to handle 75-tonne containers.

The last three cranes of the project are expected to be shipped to India in September. Doosan Vina has so far exported more than 70 cranes to the world market, including PSA Port of Singapore, JNPT of India, Samarinda Port of Indonesia and several ports of Vietnam.
