To date, the new equipment carried out commissioning. Also, a registration was made in Rostekhnadzor. The technics has completely passed technical examination.

The lifting capacity of the crane was checked by static tests. The initial weight of the test cargo was 100 tons. This mass is 25% higher than the nominal capacity. The indicated weight was held for 10 minutes. During this time interval, the functionality of the brakes was checked. After lowering the load, the specialists checked the metal structures of the equipment. The presence or absence of cracks and deformation of the metal was evaluated. Also considered were joints - bolted, welding, and block suspensions. Security devices and other mechanisms were checked. In the process of testing, the weight of 88 tons was lifted and lowered three times. The specified weight is above the nominal by 10%. Lifting, lowering was performed while moving the crane. After dynamic tests, the state of the chassis, steel structures, crane trucks was evaluated.

After the tests, the data were analyzed. As a result, the commission came to the conclusion of full compliance of technology with federal norms. Also, the crane meets the rules of industrial safety.
