A giant rubber-tyred gantry crane domestically produced by Doosan Heavy Vina has been installed at the Da Nang port, according to Nhan dan (People) Online.

The 145 tonne crane is 27 metres high, 25 metres long and 11 metres wide and is capable of moving cargo containers weighing 40 tonnes.

The made-in-Vietnam crane is designed and manufactured by Doosan Vina and is one of those it produces under the Government's policy to localise mechanical products.

This is the third crane produced by Doosan Vina. The first two cranes with the same tonnage were installed at the Sai Gon port.

Director of Da Nang port Nguyen Thu said that the crane will help the port increase its capacity in loading cargo containers and enhance commodities trading, helping it become a major import-export centre in Vietnam.-VNA
