The new phase of the expansion project of Shenzhen Airport is now under construction in full swing. Multiple ZOOMLION 3-axle truck-mounted 49m pumps from the “Green Miracle Legion” are efficiently participating in the construction, lighting up the construction site with “aurora green”. This marks ZOOMLION’s continuous, efficient contributions to the construction of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.
Located on the east bank of the Pearl River Estuary, Shenzhen Airport is the geographic center of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, and serves as a modern large-scale airport with combined sea, land, air and rail transport. According to the contractor, Shenzhen Airport handled more than 50 million passengers in 2019, which has reached the design capacity limit of the existing terminals and runways. To further ramp up the airport’s capacity, Shenzhen Airport is speeding up its new phase of expansion and plans to increase its guaranteed passenger numbers to 80 million this year.
It is understood that the new phase of expansion of Shenzhen Airport involves 11 projects including the third runway, a terminal, and a satellite hall. The third runway under construction, which is 3,600 meters long and 45 meters wide, is located between the second runway of Shenzhen Airport and the expressway along a river. The aircraft movement area will be built according to 4F, the highest level in China’s aviation industry, and various large passenger aircrafts such as A380 can be taken off and landed after its completion. Considering that the site context of the third runway is a sea area, it entails land supply through sea reclamation. As a pilot project, the land formation and soft foundation treatment project carried out in advance is an essential condition for the successful implementation of the third runway expansion project of Shenzhen Airport.
According to the relevant person in charge of the construction side, the total planned sea area for the entire project is about 2.85 million square meters, equivalent to the size of 400 standard football pitches. Sea reclamation on such a large scale has demanding requirements on concrete pouring. For this reason, the construction side has selected several ZOOMLION 3-axle truck-mounted 49m pumps to ensure the progress of the project.
To ensure the progress of the project construction, ZOOMLION’ service engineers got to the construction site to provide guidance for equipment commissioning as soon as possible, teaching machinists how to deal with emergencies to ensure zero fault of the equipment during the construction process. In the end, with excellent product quality and stable pumping technology, ZOOMLION 3-axle truck-mounted 49m pumps efficiently completed the concrete pouring of the floor for the third runway and satellite hall projects.
Both the person in charge of the expansion of Shenzhen Airport and the construction side highly recognized the outstanding performance of ZOOMLION truck-mounted pumps. “ZOOMLION’s ‘Green Miracle Legion’ is definitely an ‘industry benchmark’, be it product performance or service personnel,” said they. “ZOOMLION speed serves the purpose of China speed, and we are rest assured of the ‘Green Miracle Legion’.”
