SANY helps build FIFA 2022 stadium in Qatar


FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 marks the first time the game is held in the Middle East and the second time in Asia. Eight top-notch stadiums were renovated for the game this year, with a total investment surpassing 5 billion USD. All construction machinery involved had to stand the test of sandstorms and extreme local temperatures of up to 50° Celsius in the summer and still 35°C in cooler seasons. Eighty units of SANY machinery, including 15 mobile cranes, 5 220-t and 600-t all-terrain cranes, 30 medium and large excavators, 5 pump trucks, 20 truck mixers, 3 drilling rigs and 2 reach stackers, faced the challenge and did a job well done.

SANY machines achieved 100% availability throughout a tight schedule. Cranes with superb precision performed expertly in hoisting a large number of steel and glass structures, while pump trucks, backed by truck mixers, worked 50 hours continuously with no delays. A SANY excavator, equipped with crusher and cutter attachments, managed to handle the local high-strength rock. 

The contractor equipment manager was satisfied with the quality of SANY’s SY215C and SY335C excavators: “These two models are reliable at 50℃ with high crushing efficiency, low fuel consumption and a near-zero fault rate. On-site support throughout the project and robust after-sales service will also contribute to our decision to use SANY excavators in our future projects in Saudi.”
