Though the football team of China failed to pass the qualifications for FIFA World Cup South Africa eight years ago, manufacturers of China such as SANY and Vuvuzela made it. The world was surprised to see the presence and contributions of SANY equipment to almost each and every venue built for the event.
Four years ago in FIFA World Cup Brazil, SANY machinery, including over 60 cranes, helped build nearly 70% of all venues and stadiums. China manufacturers, as a group, rose onto the stage.
FIFA World Cup Russia was kicked off on June 14. SANY and its dealers participated in building all the 12 venues in the event. In this carnival of football, the China element represented by SANY again surprised the world.
“All the subsequent FIFA World Cup games will be our host venue”, said the head of SANY International headquarters. By making presence in FIFA World Cup, SANY International has facilitated expansion of its business and considerably improved the international fame of brand.
The venue for the Opening Ceremony & Kickoff Game
The most attention-capturing venue is Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, the capital city of Russia, where the kickoff game was held for FIFA World Cup Russia and where six other games will be held, including group-stage games, eight final, semi final and the final.
Luzhniki Stadium, now the largest stadium in Russia, is also one of the most important historical scenic spots in Moscow. First built in 1956, the 221,000㎡ stadium can hold 81,000 spectators.
To meet FIFA requirements for building the new football venues in the new era, Russia renovated Luzhniki Stadium in 2013-2017.
The SANY concrete placing booms, pump trucks and crawler cranes were used to renovate and build the stadium and its peripheries, which received great trust from the clients.
The Key Player made by the minus 25-degree extremely cold conditions
Of all the venues, the Yekaterinburg Central Stadium stays closer to China, which hosts four group-stage games in 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia. In 2006-2011 and 2014-2018, Yekaterinburg Central Stadium was renovated twice. SANY machinery was used for concrete placing and hoisting of main structure in the renovating process.
Winter in Yekaterinburg is extremely cold, with minimum outdoor working temperature reaching minus 25 degrees. As a result, the construction was more difficult. However, SANY pump trucks and crawler crane have conquered the client with their stable and exceptional performance.
To secure operations in winter, SANY has made special improvements of its machinery after making collective studies and many tests. By setting the temperature of operating environment at 35 degrees, SANY exceeds the demands of clients.
Because of the perfect performance of SANY machinery in building FIFA World Cup venues and stadiums, Gazprom selected SANY super-low-temperature truck cranes and crawler cranes, making SANY the sole supplier for the Russia-China natural gas project Siberia Force.
Pumping King famous for uninterrupted and faultless operations lasting a month
On February 13, 2017, President of the Republic of Tatarstan Rustam Minnikhanov visited SANY Industrial Park in Changsha. The President showed great interest in the beautiful environment, SANY pump trucks and firefighting trucks, stopping to take photos frequently. After the visit, he promoted SANY on the social websites. President Minnikhanov hoped SANY could make investments in the Republic of Tatarstan and participate in local construction projects.
As a matter of fact, SANY had already entered the market in the Republic of Tatarstan by building the Kazan Stadium and municipality building in the capital city Kazan.
Of all the 12 stadiums for 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia, Kazan Stadium is the first one newly built for the event, where six games will be held, including the group-stage game, eight final and quarter final.
As one of the most important and best football stadiums in Russia, the 136,000㎡ Kazan Stadium can hold 45,000 spectators. SANY concrete trailer pump, concrete placing boom and pump truck were used to build the Stadium. Due to the short schedule, the constructor demanded that SANY trailer pump and pump truck should work in the uninterrupted and faultless way in one month. In the end, SANY machinery completed the job successfully, winning great praise from the client.
After the project was completed, the client held the hands of SANY employees and said, “The SANY concrete trailer pump, placing boom and pump truck show exceptional quality and reliability. SANY is really the concrete pumping king in the world.”
