Each crane is more than 1,240 tonnes in weight and has a loading capacity of 40 tonnes. It took the company eight months to complete the crane batch ordered by the Saudi Global Ports, one month earlier than the initial plan agreed by both sides while signing their contract in March.
The batch is expected to reach its target client after three weeks. As such, Doosan Vina has so far produced 65 RTGCs for domestic and international markets.
The Saudi Global Ports, a joint venture between the Saudi Arabian public investment fund (PIF) and Singapore-based PSA international, operates major port terminals in Dammam city, a key gateway on the Arabian Gulf.
