Largest capacity crane in Sri Lanka unloaded at HIP

Last week, the largest capacity crawler crane in Sri Lanka was unloaded at Hambantota International Port. The crane, with a 750-ton lifting capacity, will be initially used for Hiruras Wind Power Project in Mannar. The German built Liebherr brand crane was being used in Japan and has now been imported to Sri Lanka for civil projects. 

The crawler crane which consisted of 1000 tons of components was unloaded by HIP within a day.  The cargo was then transferred to 42 trucks which took the equipment by road in 2 days to the project site in Mannar for assembling.
