Taiyuan Heavy Machinery Group Co. Ltd. said in a statement Thursday that the crane, which itself weighs over 3,000 tonnes, could lift 6,400 tonnes of goods to a height of 120 metres, Xinhua reported.
Currently, the world's largest cranes can only lift up to 1,200 tonnes of goods.
The crane can also be dismantled in two parts, which can work separately and each lift as much as 3,200 tonnes of goods, the company said in the statement.
Established in 1950, Taiyuan Heavy Machinery Group Co. was the first heavy machinery manufacturer in China.
In the recent years, its products have been exported to many countries and regions worldwide, including North America, South America, Australia and India.
