Zoomlion Placing Boom Has Taken Australia by Storm by Helping to Accelerate the Construction of New Footscray Hospital in Victoria


Recently, at the construction site of the New Footscray Hospital project in Victoria, Australia, 15 concrete placing booms were staggered and in full swing to ensure the concrete placement of the project. These placing booms are Zoomlion's 36m HGC36A-4Z concrete placing booms, which have become the star equipment of the local project with their strong performance and wide range of applications.

Matt, CEO of the construction contracting company of New Footscray Hospital project in Victoria, Australia, said: "This Zoomlion 36m placing boom not only has reliable quality and stable performance, but also has the advantages of high loading and dismantling efficiency, high modularity and 'one machine for multiple uses'. All of our nearly 30 placing booms come from Zoomlion, which is a very reassuring brand."

Zoomlion's Australian-specific 36m placing boom adopts modular tower body, which can use different lengths of columns to combine various tower body heights according to the needs of customers' construction sites. At the same time, the product adopts extended boom structure (the total length of the standard boom section is 36m, while it can become 33m after removing the extended boom), which can meet the needs of different construction sites and achieve multiple uses of one machine, thus saving customers' equipment procurement costs.

It is reported that the New Footscray Hospital in Victoria, Australia, with an investment of up to A$1.5 billion, is the largest public health infrastructure project in the state to date. The project started in May this year and is expected to be put into use in 2025. With high quality and good performance, Zoomlion's placing boom has undertaken more than 90% of the project's concrete placement, providing strong support for the project construction.
