Sany Port Machinery successfully stood out from many well-known competitors to win the purchase bidding of Turkish State Railways Administration for four rubber-tyred container gantry cranes (RTGs) this May. The five-million USD order is the first large overseas sales since the establishment of Sany Port Machinery.
It is worth noting that the four RTGs will be manufactured at Zhuhai Manufacturing Base of Sany Marine Heavy Industry. They will be delivered to Turkish State Railways Administration this year. In other words, port machinery made in Zhuhai will be advanced to overseas soon.
Sales revenue of the transitional base is expected to reach 1 billion RMB this year
In November 2012, Sany Group signed an agreement with Zhuhai Municipal Government, investing over ten billion RMB to build a manufacturing industrial park for port, marine engineering and ship building machinery. Before the project land is delivered, Sany has taken 9 months and invested 200 million RMB to establish a transitional base of 100,000m2 with borrowed land.
It is reported that two portal slewing cranes has just sent to Shanghai Port by sea. “The orders in progress amount to nearly 300 million RMB and an order of 200 million will be placed soon,” GM Assistant of Sany Marine Heavy Industry Tang Xiujun told the reporter. The sales revenue of the transitional base is expected to reach 1 billion RMB this year.
Sany Marine Heavy Industrial Park project officially broke ground this April. The annual production value can reach 5 billion RMB in 2013 and 30 billion RMB in five years. It will become the backbone of Zhuhai as the world-class center for ship and marine engineering equipment manufacturing.
Global R&D and manufacturing center
The Research Institute of Sany Marine Heavy Industry is located in the previous Jinwan Science Building. Since it was founded last July, it has drawn more and more experts experienced in port machinery and ship engineering design. Up to now, there is more than 100 staff at the Institute, 80% of which have postgraduate or higher degrees.
The transitional base has imported advance equipment such as fine plasma cutting machine, double-sided digital horizontal milling & boring machine and flame robot. The monthly capacity has been raised to 8 yard cranes or 5 portal cranes. The digitalization and intelligence of the workshop will reach first-class level after the main base is put into use.
Currently, the large-sized port machinery department of the Research Institute is closely cooperating with the transitional base for technological support to large-sized port machinery “made by order”. The Research Institute is also carrying out preliminary design and development of engineering ship and marine engineering equipment together with its counterparts in Shanghai and America.
