Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction signed a $26 million contract to supply large-scale freight-loading equipment for shipping ports in an international bid placed by the Port of New Orleans. The contract entails the supply of rail-mounted quay-side gantry crane equipment for loading and unloading containers from container vessels. The giant crane can handle up to 65 ton (59 t) and can maneuver along a covered line in a range of up to 51 m (167 ft) from the port toward the sea, which allows it to load and unload containers from an 18-column container vessel. Doosan will carry out the entire project, encompassing design, production, installation, and test operation for the supply of the cranes. It will deliver the equipment by July 2010.
