Sany 900-ton Crawler Crane Hoists China’s First 6.0MW Wind Turbine


Oct 2 - Oct 8, 2011, Sheyang, Jiangsu Province - Sany’s SCC9000, a 900-ton crawler crane known as “Asia’s No. 1 Crawler Crane” owned by Guangdong LIFT Engineering Machinery, has successfully completed the hoisting of China’s first largest capacity wind turbine, Sinovel SL6000/128HH100 6.0MW wind turbine. The crawler crane adopted the combination of 78m boom and 42m jib with an operating radius of 24m to hoist the 330-ton nacelle and 128-ton blades. The job signifies that Sany has made another solid breakthrough in hoisting of large capacity wind turbines, and again demonstrates Sany crawler crane’s leading position in the industry.
The SCC9000 crawler crane involved in this project integrates a number of eye-catching leading technologies, including independent structural design, a fully closed hydraulic system that is applied for the first time in China and an electric control system with independent intellectual property right. The crawler crane has taken part in many major engineering projects since it was launched in 2008, such as Guangdong Maoming Petrochemical Company, Fujian Ningde Nuclear Power station , Shenhua Guohua Power Plant (Guangdong Taishan) and Guangdong Yangjiang Nuclear Power station.
Sany’s well-developed crawler cranes series, including SCC3000WE, SCC3200, SCC4000, SCC5000WE, SCC6500, SCC6500WE, SCC7500, SCC10000, SCC16000, are capable to hoist and erect both domestic and foreign wind turbines of 1.5MW, 2.0 MW, 3.0 MW, 5.0 MW, 6.0 MW or above.
The high-quality crawler cranes of Sany are applied not only in wind power industry but also in nuclear power industry. Up to now, Sany’s crawler cranes over 900 tons including SCC9000 and SCC10000 have successfully hoisted dome of nuclear power stations for nine times. In October 2010, Sany’s 1600-ton crawler crane SCC16000 will be used to hoist the dome of Guangdong Taishan Power Station - it is China’s first and the world’s third large EPR commercial nuclear power station, also the third-generation power station with the largest unit capacity (1.75MW). It is the only domestic crawler crane used for lifting key parts of third-generation nuclear power station. With the strongest research team in the industry, the most advanced R&D and testing equipment and first-class production line, Sany Science and Technology (Shanghai) pioneers for technology advancement and constantly pushes product upgrade in Chinese crawler crane industry.
