The signing ceremony included important figures like Mr. Rayan AlBakri, Deputy Minister of Transport of Saudi Arabia, Edward Tah, CEO of SGP, Fu Weizhong, Chairman of SANY Marine, and Tang Weibin, General Manager of Overseas Marketing. This event signifies a dedication to sustainable growth in the port industry.

SGP, a collaboration between PSA, the Public Investment Fund (PIF), and Al Blagha Group, aims to accelerate the low-carbon development and modernization of PSA’s ports. SANY Marine’s electric trucks will play a role in combating climate change and align with Saudi Arabia’s “Vision 2030” sustainable development goals.

This partnership is part of Saudi Arabia’s strategy to establish itself as a central global logistics hub connecting three continents. The facility was named “Port of the Year” at the 2024 ShipTek Awards. Upon completion of the transaction, it will have the largest electric fleet in the Middle East.

SANY’s electric trucks will be essential in port operations, reducing air and greenhouse gas emissions through zero-emission technology, protecting the environment. They also offer improved energy efficiency and cost savings in operation and maintenance.

Omar Hariri, Chairman of the Saudi Ports Authority, expressed his enthusiasm about the contract, stating, “This contract contributes to the development and modernization of the port, making it a flexible and sustainable logistics center.”

Earlier this year, SANY Heavy Industry delivered 50 dump trucks to Saudi Arabia. These vehicles, along with over 1,700 SANY Heavy Industry equipment deployed at the NEOM construction site, represent a significant contribution to the region’s development.

SGP has been collaborating with SANY Marine, a subsidiary of SANY Heavy Industry, since 2013. To date, approximately 50 mobile port equipment and six rubber-tired gantry cranes (RTGs) have been delivered.
