The 300m Abeno Center in Osaka will rank as the tallest building in Japan after being constructed. For such an important project, the Japanese construction company had really strict requirements for the right machines. It used to be doubtful towards the brand of Sany. However, Sany’s donation of a 62m concrete pump truck at the most difficult time of Fukushima nuclear crisis created a turning point. Its humanitarian sympathy, high product quality and service capability won the respect from both international community and the Japanese side. After further evaluation, Sany stationary concrete pump truck HBT90CH2122DIII was selected to enter the construction site of Abeno Center.
On August 23rd, 2011, the stationary concrete pump finished the first pumping task of Abeno Center project successfully and Lin Enlai, the premier service engineer of Sany started their attentive service for this major project. Apart from strict examination before entry into the site, Lin had provided specific trainings on safety, operation, maintenance as well as mechanic, electric and hydraulic system of the machine. In order to facilitate communication, he had also stuck labels in Japanese on the equipment.
Every time there is a pumping task, Lin would arrive at the construction site in advance to check for any possible problem. He would record parameters such as the pumping height, pressure and times of directional reverse. Plus the monthly overall examination, the equipment is always in the perfect condition.
Up to now, the height of the building has exceeded 200 meters, and 4000m3 of concrete have been delivered. All the wearing parts including wear plate, cutting ring and concrete piston have normal abrasion degree. Except filter cartridge and engine oil replaced during daily maintenance, no parts have been replaced. The construction company is very satisfied with the product performance and service of Sany.
According to Lin, Sany’s technologies of one-button switch between high and low voltage, automatic piston withdrawal and dual engines have earned the approval of the Japanese customer. In the future, Sany will further improve and upgrade its equipment to cater the needs of Japanese market.
It is also worth mentioning that the excellent performance of the stationary concrete pump has greatly promoted the brand image of Sany in Japan. Sany’s stationary concrete pump HBT80C-1818D has been selected to participate in the construction of Yomiuri Shimbun Building starting in this June in Tokyo. The pump height of the building will be 200 meters and the concrete strength can reach C150.
