Chinese manufacturer ZPMC is shipping the first batch of port machinery in advance to support the construction of a super port in Singapore.

The ZPMC team shipped six RMGs in advance this time, despite the impact of COVID-19 and plum rains, making a solid foundation for the automatic debugging and delivery on the site.
The Project on Tuas Terminal of Singapore is on the super port planned by the government of Singapore, of which the first part of the port area is planned to be put into operation in 2021 and the whole terminal will be completed in 2040 with an annual container handling capacity of 65 million TEU.
