In January 2008, Hunan Province, the location of the SANY Group headquarters, suffered a major ice disaster. SANY immediately initiated de-icing rescue operations with 23 of its motor graders and 51 machine operators on the Jingzhu Expressway. After 10 days and nights of operation, 586 miles (943 kilometers) were cleared, resulting in the SANY motor grader being recognized as the "meritorious motor grader".
In response to the devastating 8.0-magnitude earthquake that occurred in Sichuan Province, China, on May 12, 2008, SANY donated materials worth US$2.7 million to the area. The company's Youth League Committee quickly organized a relief team of more than 80 members to rush to the most disaster-stricken areas. The volunteer team (with an average age of 26) followed commands closely at the rescue front line and put up a fearless fight despite continual after-shocks, clearing more than 30 key gateways and rescuing over 20 endangered persons.
A SANY SCC4000 crawler crane took part in the Chilean copper mine rescue in August 2010 when the copper mine collapsed, trapping 33 miners more than 700 meters underground. After 69 days, all 33 men were brought safely to the surface on October 13, 2010. Because any operating accidents might have caused severe disasters and ruined the rescue plan, the Chilean government was very cautious when they chose hoisting machines for the rescue. Among the three competitors, the SANY SCC4000 crawler crane was finally chosen due to its safe operation record.
After the strong earthquake in Fukushima on March 11, 2011, SANY donated a 62-m concrete pump truck and sent three service engineers to assist in the water spraying operations at the Fukushima nuclear power plant. Major adaptations to the original truck included a smaller water hose, a radiation detector and a wireless remote control, which were applied to meet the extremely demanding work requirements.
German company Putzmeister, later acquired by SANY, also donated a pump.
