They used a specially designed concrete pump, type BSA 14000 SHP-D, for construction of the Burj Khalifa.[2] In 2008, Putzmeister broke its own record by pumping concrete to a height of more than 700 m, also on the Burj Khalifa project.[3] As of 2011, an even larger concrete pump was built and sent to Japan's post-quake relief effort.[4]
