“Time is life. Now is the critical period of the epidemic. In order not to delay the construction, we must set out in the early morning and immediately start the construction upon arrival today,” said Du Fangfang, an aftersales service engineer of ZOOMLION Engineering Crane Co., Ltd.
It is reported that the Henan “Xiaotangshan” project adopted mechanical and modular construction with a building area of 7,960 m2, expected to be completed on February 9 with 252 beds to be offered for patients.
To complete the project as scheduled, ZOOMLION and its clients have jointly dispatched a construction assistance team and a service support team. Wu Chenguang and Du Fangfang, as ZOOMLION aftersales service engineers, voluntarily gave up their Spring Festival holidays and rushed to the front from their hometowns.
“My family members show a little bit reluctant for my departure, but I know that the epidemic is an order, it is the time when we are needed,” said Wu.
The Henan “Xiaotangshan Hospital” has been the fourth emergency hospital construction project recently supported by ZOOMLION cranes. Prior to that, ZOOMLION cranes had participated in the construction of such projects as Wuhan Huoshenshan and Leishenshan Hospitals as well as Guangxi “Xiaotangshan Hospital”.
Guangxi “Xiaotangshan Hospital" is an extension project of Yongwu Hospital under Guangxi Autonomous Region People’s Hospital (Yongwu). In the afternoon of February 1, ZOOMLION cranes precisely placed the first negative pressure isolation ward on the metal support and started their continuous assistance in the construction. The hoisting work of Guangxi “Xiaotangshan Hospital” was undertaken by one of clients of ZOOMLION Alliance, namely Nanning Rongwei Crane & Hoisting Service Co., Ltd. After receiving the notice of construction demand, the company resolutely dispatched multiple ZOOMLION cranes as well as dozens of operators and logistics support staff for the construction of designated area for temporary medical treatment.
At present, the construction of “Xiaotangshan” hospitals across China is in full swing. Concrete pump trucks are important equipment for pumping building walls. Since the start of Wuhan Huoshenshan construction project, more than 80 sets of concrete machinery have been deployed to assist the construction of emergency hospital projects across China.
