SANY construction cranes were purchased to undertake the heavy lifting work during the construction of the Balinghe Bridge, one of the world’s highest suspension bridges. After the completion, it has significantly reduced the travel time of local people and attracted thousands of tourists to see this wonder and scenic spots nearby.
Located in mountain areas in Guizhou province, southwest China, the Balinghe Bridge connects two mountain ranges over a large Guanling Valley. It is a four-lane route with a total length of 2,237m (7,339ft), clearance from the water to deck of 370m (1,214ft), and the bridge's suspension span is 1,088m (3,570ft) long, which makes it one of the longest suspension bridges in China.
SANY construction cranes were mainly used for the heavy lifting and placement during the construction of the bridge's two towers.
The height of the bridge’s east tower is 186m (610ft) and that of the west tower is up to 201m (659ft), and each tower is supported with a pile group of 32 pile foundations. The construction cranes must withstand all the troubles caused by the mountainous landscape, complex geological conditions and large temperature difference between day and night, summer and winter.
“SANY construction cranes have demonstrated its strong lifting capacity and load capacity. They are a strong support that guarantees the successful completion of the bridge project,” lauded by the customer.
SANY construction crane works well in different demanding jobsites. High strength Q345B steel, core components specially treated with coating for salt spraying resistance, stamping molding bar with weld flaw detection all contribute to the strong structure of our tower crane. Modular boom design, with 30m-75m boom configurations available, the construction crane features a wider reach.
