The gantry crane is 148 meters high, equivalent to 45 storey high; the lifting tonnage reaches 2000 tons. It can lift 1400 household cars successfully in one time. The height of the gantry crane and the lifting tonnage are all refurbishing the world record. The main girder lifting is the most difficult part in the whole process. The gantry crane main beam lifting weight is about 4000 tons, to raise the main beam to 148 meters high, the windward area is large, the risk is high.
