Telescopic crawler crane in Airport expansion
The expansion of Singapore Changi Airport with an additional fifth terminal is in full progress. This is being led by a joint venture of the construction companies Penta-Ocean and Koon Construction.
For the first time in Asia, a new 120 t Sennebogen 6113 telescopic crawler crane is being used.
By 2020, the airport is to be expanded to a capacity of 135 million passengers per year with the new terminal 5.
The initial work is currently being carried out on the buildings, and around 40 km of roads and traffic routes are in planning to connect the new, third runway.
The 120 t Sennebogen telescopic crane is optimally suited especially for unloading and positioning heavy precast concrete parts. The continuously telescoping full-power boom with a length of 40.2 m means that it is not only possible to place the components safely but to telescope under load as well.
Changi Airport Group has awarded the $1.12 billion contract to a joint venture formed by Samsung C&T Corporation and Koh Brothers for the first package of works relating to the development of a three-runway system at Singapore Changi Airport.
