XCMG crawler crane makes international debut

Xuzhou Construction Machinery Group’s (XCMG) 4,000-ton (3,628.7-tonne) capacity crawler crane has lifted a wash tower weighing 1,926 tons (1,747 tonnes) at a site in Jubail Industrial Zone in Dammam, Saudi Arabia.

Since its launch in 2013, the huge Chinese-built crane has travelled over 30,000 km and participated in 11 major projects in eight provinces across China. The lift in Dammam was its first-ever overseas operation.

The wash tower was 101.1 m high and 8.6 m in diameter. XCMG’s XGC88000 was used as the main crane, with a 1,250-ton (1,134-tonne) capacity crane for tail lifting.

The operation took more than five hours to complete.

XCMG said that the XGC88000 will go on to lift two 1,312-ton (1,190.2-tonne) reactors for the same project before participating in related projects on behalf of Saudi National Natural Gas Company and an oil refinery project in Oman.
