Taisun 20000 MT Crane

When Mr Brian Chang bought the small Yantai shipyard in 1994 and announced his vision of turning this humble shipyard at the end of a dirt road in a small town in China into a world renowned offshore construction shipyard, he never imagined that in such a short time he would realize this vision by building the World's Largest Crane, with 20000 MT lifting capacity. By 2006, Yantai Raffles Shipyard had firmly proved itself as a world renowned shipyard, securing approximately 30% market share in new build semi-submersible drilling rigs. The year 2008 marked a new significant milestone in the history of shipbuilding. The launch of 'Taisun', silenced the non-believers by crushing the world's heaviest lift record with an incomprehensible 20133 MT. Taisun, named after the Shandong Mountain, is suitably an impressive figure. It towers into the sky like a sky scraper. It can lift the equivalent of half the population of Oslo in Noway and it is taller than London's Big Ben. Standing at 122 m tall with a lifting capacity of 20000 MT, it has revolutionized the way large offshore vessels are being constructed. The 20000 MT Crane "Taisun" spans the full 120 m width of the Dry dock, which is 380 m long. The maximum lifting height is 80 m above the dock floor making it one of the biggest technological breakthroughs in shipbuilding history. "Taisun" makes offshore module construction possible at construction yards with lesser facilities, increasing the number of yards available for owners ...
