Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industries (ZPMC) has won a USD700 million order from DP World to supply port machineries for the company’s automated container terminal in Dubai.
The order mainly covers quay cranes and rail cranes, which are scheduled to be delivered in phases within three years, a statement of ZPMC said.
The order is the single largest one by contract value that ZPMC has secured so far in 2015, the statement added. It also ranked as the second-largest single port machinery order for ZPMC since its establishment.
