GENMA, the only brand of mobile harbor crane (MHC) in Asia, is produced by Nantong Rainbow Heavy Machineries Co, based in Nantong, East China's Jiangsu province.

MHC is a flexible and efficient piece of equipment applicable at all kinds of ports. Due to the high barrier to entry and massive technical requirements, there are only four MHC brands worldwide.

GENMA is an independently developed lifting brand owned by Nantong Rainbow Heavy Machineries Co. The company has focused its financial strength and rich resources on R&D, design, manufacturing, sales, and after-sales services for the brand.

According to a spokesperson for the company, GENMA MHC boasts a diverse array of capabilities, two drivers' cabs, a dual power system, a high level of flexibility, and low costs.

The machine is capable of lifting a variety of goods, including timber, cement, sand, fertilizer, and more. It can be installed on a diverse array of ships and ports and can handle more than 30 containers per hour.

The two drivers' cabs, one on the upper part and one on the lower part of the machine, provide a wider line of sight for drivers, enhancing work efficiency and reducing the likelihood of an accident.

The dual power system allows the machine to be powered with either diesel fuel or electricity. Also, the crane and pylon can be disassembled very quickly.

The entire machine weighs just 30 to 40 percent of other machines with the same lifting capacity, and costs just 50 to 70 percent of the regular price for such machines.

The company has been working to keep up with customer demands and provide the best possible services, with the ultimate goal of expanding throughout the global market.

The machine made its debut at Acajutla Port in El Salvador in August 2019 and won approval from the country's President Nayib Bukele during his inspection of the port.
