"The recently installed impeller, which is currently the tallest wind turbine in China, presented a new challenge for our crawler crane which was required to operate in difficult terrain. The result is a testament, not just to the incredible skill of the engineering crew and our on-site service team, but also the functionality and quality of our machinery," said Zhiwei Luo, Manager from Zoomlion Crawler Crane.
The ZCC9800W crawler crane, designed for unique and challenging engineering projects, is one of the most advanced on the market. The light-weight and modular design comes mechanized for ultimate versatility and can be disassembled, separated into multiple segments and transported conveniently across a variety of roads and terrains to be re-assembled on site. read more: S.Africa: New 140MW wind farm enters construction phase
