A system of four rubber-tyred gantry (RTG) cranes and a new container station have recently put into operation at the Tan Cang Dinh Vu (New Hai Phong Port in Dinh Vu) in the northern city of Hai Phong.

This upgrade is part of the port’s modernisation scheme to increase its capacity to meet the growing demand for cargo tranport and transform into an international standard container port in the near future.

With a total investment of 100 billion VND, the four RTG cranes manufactured by Japan's TCM Corporation were completed and put into operation along with anew 196, 250 square metre container station.

The new system will enable the port to manage container goods more effectively and increase its capacity from 10,000 to 12,000 TEUs.-VNA
