HONGKONG International Terminals Limited (HIT) has put into operation two new barge cranes to enhance productivity, increase competitiveness and raise customer service level, said the company release.

"We have witnessed an annual increase of five to six per cent in barge transshipment traffic from the Pearl River Delta region over the last three years," said HIT operations manager Franco Ning. 

"The new cranes will boost productivity by 30 - 40 per cent compared to traditional jib cranes. Each crane can handle at least 400 containers a day," he said.

Made by Sany Group, and the first of their kind in southern China, the HK$50 million (US$6.43 million) cranes can lift 35 tonnes 18 metres and span seven rows of containers to accommodate the biggest barges in service, HIT said.

HIT is a unit of Singapore-listed HPH Trust, itself a unit of Hong Kong-based conglomerate Hutchison Whampoa Limited.
