The Noida-Greater Noida Metro link has witnessed the fastest ever pace of infrastructure implementation in India, where record speed of construction and precasting was a prerequisite. Atlas Copco is proud to be part of this prestigious project by partnering with CEC International Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
Says Atlas Copco’s spokesperson, “Every business opportunity is important for us, but we take pride in being a partner in projects of national importance like metros/railways, which demand quality, stringent equipment standards, and are time driven. We have been supplying machines from our construction equipment range for metro/railway projects for more than 10 years now.”
As the Noida metro was pitched to be the fastest metro construction, hence, Atlas Copco could not afford any downtime with concrete equipment. For this prestigious project, Atlas Copco has supplied ER407B (External Vibrators) and AX+SMART high frequency vibrators from its concrete range to cast the girders, which require the highest quality equipment with high reliability. Atlas Copco has been able to offer customized solutions to the customer through its local state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Nashik, India. The company convinced the customer on the importance of quality products for such important and time bound projects. Moreover, to ensure continuous uptime, the company deputed a dedicated service engineer on site. Overall, high product reliability and after-sales support have contributed in making this project a great success.
Atlas Copco has been offering solutions for transportation such as metro/railway projects for over a decade now.

Atlas Copco concrete range of products which included External Concrete Vibrators and AX range of Concrete Vibrators, successfully contributed in making the single largest cast for this project where 6 U Girders were cast in one go, each weighing 145 tonnes and 27 metres in length.
