China has become the world's third country to develop and manufacture a one thousand tonne crane, along with Germany and the United States, as two new heavy-lifting cranes developed by a local machinery company have been approved for use in Xuzhou in eastern Jiangsu Province.

In a Jan. 24 display organized by China Machinery Industry Federation, two all-terrain-friendly cranes, QAY800 and QAY1000, both developed by Xuzhou Construction Machinery Group Inc. (XCMG), passed their reviews, according to a statement Xinhua received Wednesday.

The two cranes are China's first indigenous thousand-tonne cranes to become available on the market, according to Wen Bangchun and Ren Luquan, two academicians with the Chinese Academy of Sciences and also judges at the appraisal meeting.

Also, the two cranes have passed tests supervised by national authorities for construction machinery quality and met state requirements in safety and environmental-friendliness.

A major construction machinery manufacturer in China, XCMG, registered total sales of 66 billion yuan (10 billion U.S. dollars) in 2010.
