Power lift

08 May 2008

Construction of the Fuyang Power Plant near the Zhoupeng Township in Anhui Province, China is being aided through the use of a 750 tonne capacity Manitowoc Model 18000 crawler crane. Anhui Electric Power Corporation (AEPC), working for the Anhui Fuyang Hengyuan Power Generating Company (HYGC), specified the Model 18000 for the project. Before starting work on the contract AEPC rigged the Model 18000 with 106 m of main boom and 39.6 m of luffing jib for its work on the Anhui site.

The crane has been used to erect a variety of heavy components on the first of two 600 MW units, including structural beams, turbines, and coal buckets. The heaviest lift involved setting the 250 tonne rotary section of the turbine, which measured 10 m long and 4 m in diameter.
