ZHEJIANG, China – Zoomlion’s 3,600-tonne capacity lattice boom crawler crane has broken two world lifting records during work on a chemical processing project in China.

Between January 3 to 8, Zoomlion’s ZCC89000 crawler crane lifted three giant slurry bed reactors, the heaviest of which weighed in at more than 3,000 tonnes, at the Zhejiang Petroleum & Chemical Co.’s No. 3 material engineering project.

This lift set two world records, one for the heaviest single lift and one for fastest lifting speed. Installing these reactors advanced the plant’s construction schedule by two months, according to Zoomlion.

At 3,037 tonnes and 67.57 metres tall, these vessels are the world’s largest one-piece hydrogenation reactors to date. At the peak of these operations, the ZCC89000’s lifting moment reached 92,800 tonne-metres, with 3,160 tonnes of counterweight on the machine.
