In April, a press conference was held by the Emaar Group, the largest real estate developer in Dubai, UAE, to announce that they would build a new building named Dubai Creek Tower. It would be higher than Burj Khalifa Tower of 828 meters, now the tallest building in the world. It is also likely to surpass Kingdom Tower, a skyscraper with a design height of over 1,000 meters now under construction in its neighboring kingdom, Saudi Arabia, to be the tallest building in the world.
Dubai Creek Tower covers an area of 6 square kilometers and needs an investment of USD 1 billion. The new building is inspired by the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, one of the seven wonders in the world. When completed, it can provide a distant view of the downtown skyline in the skyscraper jungle of Dubai, including the Burj Khalifa Tower. Dubai Creek Tower will be another challenge in the architectural history of the world and a new landmark in Dubai and the world.
In this project, the construction company procured 20 crawler cranes, 16 tower cranes, 10 crane trucks and 6 rotary drilling rigs from XCMG for the construction of Dubai Creek Tower and Dubai Creek Harbor. Once again, XCMG competes with international brands in a major global project. This shows that XCMG has been recognized by world-class construction companies for its technology, manufacturing and services.
XCMG entered the UAE market in 1996 and has been received among the clients from being rejected at first to being responded with a thumbs-up gesture now over more than 20 years. This is the result from the long-term adherence to the technological innovation and quality management system under the golden standard “Leading technology, Everlasting products”, proposed by Chairman Wang Min. The change further demonstrates the determination and courage of a Chinese manufacturing enterprise to upgrade itself to make it comparable to world first-class competitors.
In recent years, XCMG has intensified its efforts to reach major key clients and major projects in the UAE market and has made great achievements. It has not only secured large orders from Chinese construction companies such as CNPC, Sinopec, China State Construction, Sinohydro, and Gezhouba Group, but also has become a popular supplier of local major construction companies including EMAAR, NSCC, UNEC and SHAPOORJI PALLONJI GROUP. XCMG built a 8,000-square-meter warehouse of spare parts and set up an integrated service team in the UAE to provide customers with 24-hour professional services. It is highly praised by the local clients and has become the preferred Chinese brand in the local market.
