Zoomlion’s Large Tonnage Rough Terrain Crane Sees Another Breakthrough during “North-South Water Transfer Project” on African Continent


With a loud and clear whistle, Zoomlion ZRT1100D533 crane successfully placed, in a smooth way, a section of concrete pipe weighing 18 tons accurately in the desired location.


This construction, seemingly ordinary, is actually representative of the formal entry into the pipe-laying stage for the “North-South Water Transfer” project in Tunisia. The water supply project, a key agricultural irrigation project of the local government, requires laying 160 kilometers of concrete pipes and is expected to last for 8 months. Once completed, it will significantly mitigate the challenges of water supply for residents and agriculture in the southern towns of Tunisia.


According to the relevant person in charge of Zoomlion Construction Cranethe successful entry of the company into the Tunisian market is as a result of the advantage of Dubai as a trade center and the influence of The Big 5 Dubai, an international building and construction show, as well as the close collaboration between the Middle East team of Zoomlion Construction Crane and the ground markters.  

It has been said that, last year, the Tunisian customer led a technical team to visit Zoomlion Gulf FZE[a1]  for nearly a week, with a focus on the performance test of the ZRT1100 product line, operation training, third-party certification for crane load, and the physical operation system of Zoomlion parts center and warehouse in Dubai[a2] . In the end, Zoomlion won the trust of the customer with its quality products and comprehensive and attentive services and successfully signed this order.  


Through the years, Zoomlion has continued to advance the localization strategy of overseas companies and the physical operations of its subsidiaries, with the establishment of Abu Dhabi and Sharjah subsidiaries in UAE, Dammam, Riyadh and Jeddah subsidiaries in Saudi Arabia, Oman subsidiary, and Egypt subsidiary. With this effort, Zoomlion has seen an increasingly enhanced brand influence in the local market and surrounding countries.


Zoomlion will continue to devote itself to the needs of customers in different domains, and to offer them better quality products and more efficient technical service support, aiming to help its local customers create more value, while achieving a steady growth at top speed.
