SANY Crane Installs Wind Turbine for the World’s Highest-grade Hard Rock Lithium Mine in Australia

The Kathleen Valley, 680km northeast of Perth and about 60 km north of Lynst, is considered a Tier-1 battery metals asset with one of the largest and highest-grade hard rock lithium deposits in the world and is one of the new lithium mines to be opened in Australia.


The Kathleen Valley Lithium Project owned by Liontown Resources Limited is set to be one of the greenest resource projects in Australia with a clean energy power station. The power station will include 30MW of wind, from a total of five 6MW turbines, and 16MW of solar PV, and a 17MW/19MWh battery energy storage system, as well as synchronous condensers to provide critical system stability and resilience.

SANY SCL10000 crane is working on-site to install the wind turbines. With a maximum lifting capacity of 1000 tons and a maximum lifting moment of 11000 t*m, the SCL10000 should assemble the wind turbine tower first and then lift the 92-meter blade to 210 meters peak height from the ground, which is a great challenge to the durability and stability of the crane.

The project is due to enter production in mid-2024 and is expected to deliver around 500,000 tonnes of 6% lithium oxide concentrate annually.
