Liebherr towers work in Yuen Long
By Laura Hatton01 November 2013
Nine Liebherr tower cranes are working on a shopping and housing complex in Yuen Long, Hong Kong.
The project, which is in the Yoho Mid-town development, is being completed in three phases. The main contractor for the project is Aegis Engineering Co.
So far the development has nine 39-storey towers, a 92,903 square metre shopping mall and more than 2,200 residential apartments. Once complete, the site will have 24 towers with enough apartments for more than 22,000 residents.
The Liebherr 200 EC-H has a lifting capacity of 10 tonnes and a 2.4 tonne capacity at 60 metre jib length. The cranes are working on phase three of the Yuen Long project.
Gavin Wong, Aegis Engineering senior technician, said, “The 200 EC-H tower cranes are the ideal size for lifting and placing the pre-cast seven tonne concrete external wall panels.”
The project is due for completion in 2015.
