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.”
