Sany Port Machinery has become the first Chinese company to join the Port Equipment Manufacturers Association (PEMA), along with Germany-based Gottwald Port Technology, further extending the Association’s pool of global professional experience.
“Given the strength of the Chinese port and shipping sectors, Sany’s extensive experience and broad product portfolio make the company an especially valuable source of expertise. We also welcome Gottwald Port Technology – a powerful player in the port equipment market for more than a century,” explains PEMA President, Ottonel Popesco.
Sany Port Machinery produces reach stackers, container handling equipment, yard cranes – including rail-mounted gantry cranes and rubber-tyre mounted gantry cranes – and ship-to-shore cranes.
Tracing its origins back to 1906, Gottwald Port Technology is part of the Demag Cranes group. Gottwald’s product range includes mobile harbour cranes, such as portal harbour cranes and floating cranes, automated guided vehicles for horizontal container movements, automated stacking cranes and wide span gantries.
PEMA provides a forum and public voice for the global port equipment and technology sectors, reflecting their critical role in enabling safe, secure, sustainable and productive ports and thereby supporting world maritime trade.
The Association has steadily expanded its membership in the past three years, with equipment suppliers drawn from all sides of the ports industry. PEMA has also established working groups to focus on key issues for the ports sector within the fields of safety, environment and technology.
PEMA now has 41 member companies including: ABB, Actiw, Advanced Microwave Engineering, APS Technology, Baltkran, Brevetti Stendalto, Brieda Cabins, Bromma, Bureau Veritas, Cargotec, Cavotec MSL, Conductix-Wampfler, Control Techniques, Craneports, Gottwald Port Technology, Hi-Tech Solutions, Hyster Europe, Identec Solutions, ifm electronics, Konecranes, Lasstec, Linde Heavy Truck Division, Liftech Consultants, Loxystem, MAFI Transport-Systeme, Michelin, Nexans, Portek Group, Pintsch Bubenzer, Prysmian, RAM Spreaders, Sany Port Equipment, SICK, Siemens, Stinis, Svetruck, Terberg Benschop, Terex Cranes, Tratos Cavi, TTS Port Equipment and Visy.
