KYB-Conmat’s stationary concrete batching plant - saves construction time, labour and total capital costKYB-Conmat’s stationary concrete batching plant CRP-900 IL5 has been selected for construction of the prestigious project. “The project, is not of conventional design, rather, it is carved, circular and three-dimensional, which makes it quite challenging as such architecture is being developed for the first time in India, and is at an international level with its beautiful architecture,” comments Sailaj Verma, Senior VP- Sales at KYB-Conmat Pvt. Ltd.
He adds, “The VCM team wanted to partner with a reputed concrete company, which would be experienced and committed to the project. We are proud to be associated with VCM, and can offer a range of machines for the project such as our concrete batching plant and transit mixer. Our equipment will save construction time, labour and the overall capital cost.”
He informs that VCM’s team along with the project manager visited, KYB-Conmat’s head office at Vadodara, as they wanted the special SCC concrete for the temple. The Self Compacting Concrete is highly flowable, non-segregating, and can spread evenly to fill the formwork and encapsulate the reinforcement without any mechanical consolidation.
Satisfied with the process and the end-product, the team from Mathura placed an order for KYB Conmat’s 90 cubic meter/hour batching plant and three transit mixers of 7 cubic meter capacity. Says Abhishek Prakash, Project Manager, VCM, “KYB-Conmat’s versatile and robust products are the most reliable, and the company is also the best service provider. They give timely after-sales service and their spare parts are easily available. We wanted to partner with such a (reputed) company for this most prestigious project.”
KYB’s stationary concrete batching plants are deployed worldwide for infrastructure construction, especially concrete roads, metro rail, high-rise buildings, dams and other crucial projects.
