On 11 December 2021, XCMG held a grand ceremony for delivery to commemorate the start of delivery of 35 units of XCMG XGC15000A, 1000-tonne class crawler crane to Dafeng Energy Group, heading for the Northwest Wind Power Base Project.
The ceremony was held at the crawler crane division of the XCMG construction machinery factory and with the first order given, the transport convoy carrying the crane components lined up neatly and head towards the Northwest Wind Power Base Project.
With China aiming to achieve carbon neutrality by 2060, the renewable energy sector is still booming despite the pandemic and they are at the same time accelerating the development of green low-carbon energy for the domestic market.
The successful signing of the 1,000-tonne crawler order indicates that the concentration for wind turbine installation and assembly works will be carried out in the northwest wind power base.
The 35 units of 1,000-tonne crawler set off a lot of waves in the entire hoisting industry, as the value of the equipment procured is higher than a previous procurement by Jiangsu Zhongzun Group with a large order of more than RMB 1 billion.
