Over 40 units of Sany machinery were used on the Kusile Power Plant construction site in Witbank, South Africa. The lineup included a number of Sany crawler cranes, truck cranes and rough-terrain cranes.

Kusile Power Plant is one of the South African Department of Energy and state electricity utility Eskom’s key investment projects.

With a total investment of US$14 billion and installed capacity of 4,800 megawatts, Kusile Power Plant is the largest thermal power station in South Africa and the fourth-largest in the world.

SCC7500, Sany’s 750-ton hydraulic crawler crane, is the largest-tonnage machine to be ever exported to Africa from China; it was also the largest crane on site, and was used to lift the plant’s head cover.

Supported by unique counterweight mobile technology and double-hook lifting, SCC7500 successfully lifted the 152-ton plant cover 65 meters (213 feet) high. Sany’s South African customers were highly impressed by the crane’s superior lifting capacity, and its highly-efficient and reliable performance.
