13-01-2022

(WorldKings.org) The Yihang Jinzhuang, at 14,644 gross tons has a pile frame of 142 meters, roughly equal to the height of a 50-story building.

The world's first 140-meter piling vessel was officially delivered in east China's Jiangsu Province on Friday, beefing up China's infrastructure construction.

The record-breaking vessel, called Yihangjinzhuang, is equipped with the world's highest pile frame of 142 meters, the largest hoisting capacity of 700 tonnes, the longest piling length of over 118 meters under water, as well as strong wind and wave resistance capabilities.

It was financed, researched and developed by China Communications Construction Co First Harbor Engineering Company and manufactured by Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industries Co.

The Yihang Jinzhuang, at 14,644 gross tons has a pile frame of 142 meters, roughly equal to the height of a 50-story building. With its maximum working pile length of 118 meters plus the depth of water, it can work in much deeper open seas.

The pile-driving barge is also equipped with China's domestically developed Beidou  system, which will be used in navigation during voyages, accurate positioning during operations, and sending messages where there is no 4G signal.
