Since the outbreak of Japan’s nuclear crisis in Fukushima nuclear power station, the determination and the strong will of Japanese people have touched the whole world. On March 19th, Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), which runs the plant, mailed Sany Heavy Industry, hoping to purchase Sany 62m concrete pump to support the water spraying operation in the nuclear plant. Sany has showed great concern about the event and responded positively that Sany will offer its 62m concrete pump to TEPCO free of charge to help fight against the current crisis. The equipment has left Sany headquarters in Changsha and is now heading towards Shanghai. It is estimated that the concrete pump will arrive in Osaka Harbor, Japan \next Wednesday.

March 19th, an emergency mail from TEPCO President Masataka Shimizu was sent to Sany Heavy Industry. In the letter, he wrote, “As we experienced a very severe earthquake and a huge tsunami on March 11th, 2011, we now have serious situation to cope with in our nuclear power plant. We certainly appreciate your kindest offer to send your product, truck mounted concrete pump SY5502THB 62B, to Japan free of charge. We would like to accept this offer and would like to use the truck mounted concrete pump SY5502THB in Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. Thank you again and we anxiously wait for the pump to arrive.”
 
According to reports that TEPCO has been using equipments like fire truck, military helicopter, truck mounted concrete pump to spray water into the reactors, trying to cool them down and restart the reactors’ cooling system. TEPCO knew that Sany was the record holder for the concrete pump with the longest boom reach. Then it sent purchase inquiry of Sany SY5502THB truck mounted concrete pump to Sany Heavy Industry. After hearing the situation in Japan, Mr. Liang Wengen, chairman of Sany Heavy Industry promised that Sany would give its 62m concrete pump to TEPCO free of charge and was willing to help Japanese people fight against this crisis. 
 
Yang Zhihua, the vice general manager of Sany Overseas, commented “the 62m concrete pump will mainly be used in the water spraying operation for the No.4 reactor. The reactor is 46 meters high and the concrete pump has to keep a distance of 14 meters from it. Sany’s 62m truck mounted concrete pump is just the one that meets such requirement.”
 
In 2007, Sany 66m truck mounted concrete pump made the Guinness Record as the concrete pump with the longest boom range. Merely two years later, Sany refreshed its own record with a 72m truck mounted concrete pump. Now Sany Heavy Industry is still the holder of this honor.
 
The booming technology is the key technology for the manufacturing of truck mounted concrete pump. Before, the technology was controlled by American and German Companies. After years of research and development, Sany Heavy Industry managed to develop China’s first truck mounted concrete pump. After ten years’ of development, Sany’s boom length for concrete pump has increased from 37m to 72m. Sany now has the largest manufacturing plant for truck mounted concrete pump and is recognized and trusted by the customers as the leading brand in the concrete machinery industry. 
 
A brand with a history in international operation
Sany sending concrete pump to Japan was not the first time that we saw Sany’s appearance in international operation. In October 2010, Sany SCC4000 crawler crane joined the rescue of trapped Chilean miners and was called “No.1 crane in China”. Sany crawler crane was one of the two rescuing equipment on site and was the only equipment from Asia. HAO Heng, Sany’s service engineer was the only rescuer from Asia. The rescue operation was successful and all trapped miners were saved. In the operation, Sany’s products and service impressed the local people and made the world know the quality of “made in China”.
 
“The reason why Chile chose Sany in their rescue plan is that Sany has fame for its high quality products and first class service as well. Japan is a country famous for its construction machinery products. This time, TPE choosing Sany showed their trust in Sany’s concrete pumping products” said a machinery expert.
 
As an international company, Sany never forgets it responsibility for the society and global community.
 
In February, 2008, Sany donated 3million RMB to help fight against the ice disaster in Hunan and sent 21 Sany graders in the ice removing operation on Hunan highway. In May, 2008, Sany donated 3 million RMB, and construction equipments valued at 15 million RMB to help people in Wenchuan earthquake. A Sany rescue and service team of 80 people was sent to the stricken area in Sichuan. In June, 2009, a serious land sliding disaster attacked Chongqing Wulong. Sany’s four excavators were the first group of rescuing equipments that arrived. August, 2009, the southern part of Taiwan was hit by Typhoon Morakot and suffered the most serious flood since 1961. Sany donated equipments worth 3.5 million RMB to Taiwan to help people in the disaster. April, 2010, a 7.1 magnitude earthquake struck Yushu, Qinghai. Sany offered 15 million RMB and sent excavators to the disastrous area. China’s first foundation aimed for helping orphans in the disaster area was founded by Sany after the earthquake. May, 2010, a derailment happened in Shanghai-Kunming railway. Sany sent support team and was among the first group that arrived. August, 2010, 5 excavators and 2 pile drilling rigs from Sany joined the rescue operation in Zhouqu earthquake.
