The XCA1600 is the world’s first wheeled crane capable of installing impellers at the height of 140 meters. The assembled impeller had a diameter of 141 meters and weighed nearly 90 tons; the crane lifted and docked the impeller in only 40 minutes while engineers spent another 90 minutes to fasten all 80 bolts.

“China has the greatest number of wind farm installations. The 1,600-ton all-terrain crane, designed for projects at height has not only overcome many construction challenges with world-leading technology and strong quality, but it has also now made its name with this new record-breaking project complete as China leading crane technology and quality,” said Jianzhong Sun, VP of XCMG and the GM of XCMG Crane Business Division.
XCMG’s 1,600-ton all-terrain crane has the following highlights:
- Lightweight: worldwide, the XCA1600 is the smallest 1,600 tonnage crane in size with the most considerable hoisting capability and most robust functions.
- Full coverage: it covers all wind power construction scenarios with a seven-section main boom reaching 92.4 meters. With its innovative self-folding wind power boom of 27.5 to 51.5 meters, it can easily lift 95 tons when expanded to 140 meters of height.
- Intelligent control: the XCA1600 can analyze the best program for different tasks to guarantee accurate positioning while lifting objects of up to 100-tonnes
