The Gemalink project was signed on May 17, 2019 with a total volume of over 10,200 tons includes six giant RMQC cranes which each is 93m high, 150m long, 27m wide and weighs more than 1,700 tons.
“With this design, our cranes can reach up to 70 meters into the sea and can lift two 20-feet containers at the same time or bulk cargoes and project cargo of 65 tons and 85 tons from large mother vessels up to 200,000 DWT”, Yoon Young Sang, Leader of Erection_Crane Department said.
These 6 cranes were handed over to customer in 3 shipments: on July 2, September 9 and today (November 26) are the last two units of the project.
After 3 days of loading onboard and reinforcing, two cranes No.5 and 6 left Doosan Vina port and will arrive at Gemalink port (located in Cai Mep - Thi Vai deep-water port area, Ba Ria - Vung Tau province) on November 29. After that Doosan Vina's and investor’s experts, engineers, and technicians will test, commission and transfer technique. This usually takes more than one month.
