One unit of 650t crawler crane from SANY was purchased by China Railway Construction Engineering Group along with many concrete machines for the construction of the Baraki Stadium, east of Algiers.
The football stadium of Baraki with a capacity of 40,000 seats and total construction area of over 62000 square meters will become the second largest stadium in Algeria upon completion. The stadium is comprised of oval-shaped concrete stand, a steel structure roof reaching about 58-meter high. The SCC6500 crawler crane is mainly responsible for the lifting and installation of this big space truss steel structure.
A total of 7,000t steel is used in this project, and the maximum span of main truss is 200m, maximum height is 11m. The main truss structures have to be assembled first on ground before using the crawler crane to hoist it. Trusses are divided into 32 units, and then the 650t crawler crane lifts them onto temporary supports where they can be welded. The maximum weight of single unit is up to 144t.
To complete the lifting work in such a major and complex project, SCC6500 crawler crane win customer's recognition not only by it outstanding lifting capacity and unmatched reach, but also because it can realize stable operation even with heavy loads during the raise/lower of boom. Moreover, the stadium ground is not level, which might cause the crawler crane to operate unsteadily when swing around.SANY service engineer Fan Changan who is expert in the installation and commissioning of crawler crane was sent from China to Algeria, solved the problems for the customer.
SCC6500 crawler crane also features multiple purpose operation as it can support the combination of up to 11 types of operating conditions. With boom length of 84m, luffing jib length of 84m, combined boom length of 102m, fixed short jib length of 12m, and superlift, SCC6500 crawler crane can be configured flexibly to meet your construction requirements.
After the construction of Baraki Stadium, the 650t crawler crane will also be used in the infrastructure building of Algeria, taking part in the construction of Algiers T2 terminal, and another two large stadiums.
