Recently, the hoisting of the main symbolic tower in Yanqing competition zone completed. In the past 40 days, more than 300 CSCECers took part in and completed the work at an ultra-high altitude.
The project was carried out in Badaling town, Yanqing district, Beijing. The project team made full use of the structure of the existing buildings for remodeling and design and added decorative designs and ice and snow factors featuring the Winter Olympics to the original solar collecting testing tower in Badaling town. As a result, the tower became a beautiful landscape in Yanqing competition zone and also one of the most important symbolic buildings of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics.
The total weight of the Olympic rings was 160 tons and the "five-ring structure" was composed of a body and a base. With the outer diameter of 12 meters and the inner diameter of 10 meters, the body weighed 51 tons; and the truss of the base was framed by steel in an "H" shape, weighed 55 tons and had a hoisting altitude more than 120 meters.
