Genma expanding into India

China-based Genma (Nantong Rainbow Heavy Machineries Co., Ltd) has reported a new order from J M Baxi group in India to supply three of its model GHC100 mobile harbour cranes for operation in Paradip port.

The cranes will be operated by J M Baxi affiliate Paradip International Cargo Terminal Pvt Ltd, which works vessels up to 125,000 dwt, and handles a range of breakbulk and bulk cargoes, including steel, aluminium block, chemical fertiliser, grain and sugar. The cranes have a maximum hook load of 100t, and outreach is from 10m to 48m.

According to Genma, the or-der follows an open tender that included “some top players in this field”. It said it won the order after performance checks by the customer and site visits to existing customers.

With this order, MHC ‘new-comer’ Genma will increase its references to nine cranes, rang-ing in capacity from 63t to 200t. The travelling mechanisms available include rubber-tyred MHCs and rail portal-mounted designs.

Rainbow Heavy Industries is Kalmar’s JV partner in Rainbow Cargotec Industries (RCI) for STS container cranes, RTGs and RMGs for export outside China, but its separate Genma offer includes MHCs and rail-mounted jib crane variants, gan-try grab unloaders and dedust-ing hoppers, together with bulk materials handling equipment.
