SANY Equipment Assists in Constructing Iraqi Airport
Since the project began, eight units of SANY equipment, including truck mixers, batching plants, wheel loaders and telehandlers, had assisted in constructing the Iraqi airport.
The new airport, with a capacity of 750,000 passengers per year, is expected to replace the current aviation center in south Iraq as the new aviation hub of southwestern Iraq, to boost the region’s economy, traffic growth and the investment climate.
With a contract amount of $367 million, the project includes the construction of a terminal building, an air traffic control building, a cargo facility, a 25-km airport highway, ancillary facilities and the reconstruction of the runway and parking apron.
“It is not an easy task to transform a nearly deserted airport into an international airport for large aircrafts,” said Liu Feilong, Chief Engineer at CSCEC. “This is the reason why we chose SANY.”
Sany Group, headquartered in Changsha, Hunan Province, is a Chinese heavy equipment manufacturer. It is currently the third largest heavy equipment manufacturer in the world and the first company in the industry to represent China in the FT Global 500 and Forbes Global 2000 rankings.
