King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah, the second biggest city in Saudi Arabia, with an investment of 5.3 billion USD, covers an area of 105 square kilometers, even larger than the total area of the five largest airports in the USA. It accommodates take-off and landing of 20 Boeing 747 and 26 other models of planes, transporting 30 million passengers a year, making it one of the busiest airports in Middle East.
The contractor-Bin Laden Group- is a renowned and influential company in Arab, which has participated in almost all the major projects in Middle East. SANY crane machine STC250 and STC750 are used in the airport construction.
The construction faced severe working conditions. The weather was hot, sandy and windy. And the equipment needed to work at least 10hours each day, so it posed very high requirements on the crane machine. SANY STC250 and STC750 successfully completed the task and won the customer’s high recognition with the top performance and reliability.
“SANY crane machines are very stable and efficient. We have seen its outstanding performance and will definitely choose SANY next time,” said the contractor.
SANY crane machines have ranked NO.1 in the Saudi Arabian market for several consecutive years and won praise of the local customers.
In 2011 when Saudi Arabia started the infrastructure construction boom, Al Areedh company planed to purchase over 100 units of crane machines, which could be one of the largest order among the global crane markets.
Hearing this news, Tang Wenbin, general manager of SANY’s Saudi Arabian subsidiary, began to prepare thorough materials to meet all requirements of the customer. When the customer saw SANY’s state-of-the-art production line, they were deeply impressed, saying that it was the most advanced factory that they had ever seen.
“The crane machine has superb performance, the exact equipment that we are looking for,” said the customer’s operator after testing various hoisting performance of the SRC550 rough-terrain crane.
After obtaining the major crane order, SANY has made a strong presence at the Saudi Arabian market. With the quality performance and service, SANY crane machines have won favor of local customers.
