FAR EAST HORIZON Lends Help to Building Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge
Oct. 23, 2018, 10:00 CST will surely be a history-making moment.
The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge was opened in Zhuhai, Guangdong by Xi Jinping, who attended the ceremony in the capacity of CPC General Secretary, Chinese President and CMC Chairman on Oct. 23, 2018, 10:00 CST.
A dragon straddling the Lingding Estuary
Nine years of sweat resulted in the 55 km dragon-like giant structure across the immense Lingding Estuary, which now provides convenience of access.
With the longest marine span in the world and providing access to Hong Kong on the east and Zhuhai and Macau on the west, the bridge is yet another important infrastructure work after the Three Gorges Dam and the Qinghai-Tibet Railroad. It’s also a bridge “megaproject” that has made history in China in regard of technology, environment and criteria.
Chinese span, Chinese standards and Chinese spirit
World-stunning for its “Chinese span”, the bridge is the longest sea-crossing bridge, with the longest immersed tube tunnel and the longest steel structure in the world.
It has made so many records in China and the world.
It has initiated so many world-leading Chinese standards by involving the world’s most complicated sea-crossing structure building technology. Under national technical support policy, Chinese technologists were able to solve many management, engineering, safety and environmental problems while initiating a series of Chinese standards which were innovative in not only China, but also the world.
It has inspired the world with an underlying “Chinese spirit”. Thousands of builders stuck together to face every challenge in the past fourteen years, creating a “work of art” — a world-famous sea-crossing bridge. The bridge epitomizes a robust national economy since the economic reform started 40 years ago, showing a sweeping influence of the Chinese spirit.
How FAR EAST HORIZON contributed to the bridge megaproject
A group of passionate builders on behalf of FAR EAST HORIZON were also present at the opening ceremony. They shed tears in excitement.
The builders belong to Horizon Equipment, the FAR EAST HORIZON unit in charge of equipment assets management. As a leader in the Chinese construction equipment lease, Horizon took advantage of its local resources and extensive experience to provide the bridge project with a total AWP (Aerial Work Platform) solution.
Deploying nearly 1,000 AWPs throughout the construction work on a standardized 24/7 basis, FAR EAST HORIZON builders not only repaired building equipment, but also provided maintenance throughout the project, with its professional service and leading service concepts built on a dedicated platform.
For more than a decade, professionalism and resources advantage have enabled FAR EAST HORIZON to march further into infrastructure and provide total solutions to investment, financing, construction and operation. As an ongoing leader in industrial standards, FAR EAST HORIZON will continue to make progress in the Chinese construction industry.
As a dedicated and persevering contractor, FAR EAST HORIZON has lent assistance to infrastructure projects of national importance. Its participation in China’s development projects in a new era will be instrumental in its “Finance + Industry” two-pronged policy. FAR EAST HORIZON is hopefully expected to do its work in industrial progress, value-added creation and the revitalization of the Chinese people.
