Sarens is already looking forward to the 2022 World Cup, which will be hosted in Qatar from November 21, 2022 to December 18, 2022. As the country prepares for the world’s most prestigious football tournament, construction is already in full swing on the Doha Metro System, new orbital highways and expressways, as well as new stadiums. 

In this flurry of new construction projects, Sarens has deployed a fleet of 17 cranes to help build one of eight stadiums that will host the country’s World Cup championship matches. This operation was made possible by Sarens’ crane rental division, represented by Qatar Al-Attiyah International Group, which has been working closely with Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy on the construction of Qatar’s eight major World Cup stadiums. 

In collaboration with the Salini Impregilo Group and Galfar and Cimolai joint venture (GSIC JV), along with CIMOLAI S.p.A., Sarens has provided cranes for the construction of the iconic Al Bayt Stadium in the city of Al Khor, famous for its pearl diving and fishing. The stadium’s design is inspired by traditional Bedouin tents, which symbolise the hospitality of the Qatari people, and once complete it will host 60,000 football fans in an area spanning 200.000 square meters. 

For this project, a total of 17 mobile and crawler cranes were mobilised on-site over a period of 18 months. These included the following: 

  • Demag CC 6800
  • Liebherr LR 1750
  • Liebherr LR 1400
  • Liebherr LR 1300
  • Liebherr LR 1280
  • Liebherr LR 1250
  • Liebherr LR 1200
  • Liebherr LR 1160
  • Liebherr LR 1130
  • Liebherr LR 1100
  • Liebherr LTM 1500
  • Liebherr LTM 1350
  • Liebherr LTM 1250
  • Liebherr LTM 1160
  • Liebherr LTM 1070
  • Kobelco CKE 1350
  • Tadano GR 800 EX 

Sarens was a top choice for this project because of the Group’s  solution-driven approach, extensive fleet of cranes, highly skilled personnel, operational excellence, and heavy lifting expertise. Sarens is pleased to support this important project and to become a part of the tradition and excitement surrounding the world’s most-loved football championships!
