Siemens has partnered with Myanmar Mahar Htun (MMH) to provide technology and solutions for Myanmar’s ports, in a bid to drive operational efficiency, productivity and safety.

MMH will equip ports with cranes that feature Siemens’ technology with the aim of helping ports upgrade their services alongside enhancing onsite safety and improving productivity and output.

The deal comes as Myanmar Port Authority (MPA) focuses on increasing the capabilities of its port facilities to meet economic and environmental requirements.

Myanmar, connected to key regional markets China and India, and bordering Bangladesh, Thailand and Laos, is currently able to handle around 20 small tankers with around a total of 220,000 dwt. This number is set to further rise with the expansion of its ports.

Having been present in Myanmar since 1993, Siemens expanded local office in Yangon last year to establish a broader partner network.
