Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd (MHI) in Japan has signed an agreement with SPP Machine Tech Co Ltd, a marine machinery manufacturer in Korea, to produce and market MHI technology-based marine deck cranes.

MHI will supply components for the cranes, including hydraulic machinery, to SPP Machine Tech.

Two crane models are in production, both with 36 tonnes capacity and a working radius of up to 26 and 28 metres.

SPP Machine Tech was established in 1988 as an affiliate of SPP Group. In addition to deck cranes, the company manufactures goliath gantry cranes, marine boilers, rudders and other products.
