Sany has delivered 15 electronic rubber-tyred gantry (eRTG) cranes to Jawaharlal Nehru Port in India along with six various container handling machines to Chittagong Port.
The eRTGs feature an automatic gantry steering system and a remote crane management system.
They are powered by a cable drum and diesel engine, with an energy recycling system to reduce energy consumption.
The delivery to Bangladesh, which features two reachstackers for heavy containers, one reachstacker for empty containers and three empty container handlers, was made within two months of the order being confirmed.
According to a statement from Sany, the order represents the breaking of a “decades-long market monopoly of European and American brands in Chittagong’s port machinery market.”
