Two experienced operators joined the Yancheng rescue efforts with two truck-mounted cranes and high-performance hoisting equipment. In a remarkable show of solidarity, two Sany-Palfinger customers also volunteered to assist after hearing news of the relief efforts.

The Sany-Palfinger cranes were used to lift and move damaged power lines, telegraph poles and other debris on the road so that essential rescue equipment could be transported to affected areas.

With 12-ton lifting capacity, 25-ton transporting capacity and an operating radius that is 10% wider than other truck-mounted cranes on the market, the Sany-Palfinger machines delivered high working efficiency. They were able to perform quick hoisting and fast transportation, which was crucial for the time-sensitive disaster relief.

At present, the road connecting Funing County to the affected Wutan town has now been completely cleared and electricity restored to the town. “The team is ready to go anywhere where help is needed to assist Funing people,” said Sany-Palfinger Business Manager Wu Bin at the site.

Sany remains committed to assisting communities in rescue efforts and disaster relief, both locally and globally. It has previously contributed rescue equipment and technical assistance during the 2011 Chilean mine rescue, the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster and the 2016 Shandong mine rescue — continuing with business ethos of service.
