A fleet of Dynapac range of equipment from Atlas Copco India's road construction equipment division, have dotted the North Eastern landscape. The North-eastern landscape, in particular, has few roads and very low connectivity. Looking at current activities & projects, this region is a major focus area with plans in place by authorities and quick turnaround time for awarding projects. Today, demand for equipment is also increasing gradually from this part of India.
As a leading road construction contractor in the North East, M/s TK Engineering Consortium Pvt Ltd. has currently deployed 19 nos which include a mix of Dynapac Soil Compactors, Tandem Rollers, Pneumatic Tyred Rollers and Pavers in six different extremely remote areas.
This is a repeat order from T K Engineering because the customer is satisfied that all Dynapac technology road construction equipment from Atlas Copco ensure quality output with less operating cost and maintenance.
With temperatures ranging from 2 deg C to - 10 deg C, rough roads or no roads at all, reaching these sites is a challenge by itself. Though competitor road construction manufacturers were also in the race with much lower prices offered, the customer chose to bank on Atlas Copco Road Construction Equipment for this prestigious project.
Atlas Copco equipment is meeting the specification of road construction equipment which is required to be used as per the project technical specification. The projects are achieving the desired results with higher compaction output in the same time as compared to competitor brands. "This has reduced our operation cost and logistics cost considerably" says, Mr. P.K. Roy, General Manager of M/s T.K. Engineering Consortium Pvt Ltd.
T K Engineering Consortium Pvt Ltd. started with 2 nos of each brand - Dynapac and two other competitors for their trial and testing initially. Today Atlas Copco road construction equipment has grown from 2 to 19 nos.
Further, Mr. Roy adds, "There is a major issue of after sales support in our territory due to connectivity issues. Atlas Copco is the preferred choice for its excellent on-site service back up. Atlas Copco provides us with outstanding after sales support and our confidence in Dynapac equipment has been further strengthened with periodic operator training by Atlas Copco. We have further extended this confidence in Atlas Copco with the purchase of their QLTM10 Light Tower and Asphalt Orka Cutter."
With minimum breakdown and less maintenance cost, coupled with operator comfort due to lesser vibrations in the operator seat as compared to other machines in the same class, Atlas Copco road construction equipment, especially the Dynapac Soil Compactors, are the best in the industry", says Mr. Roy.
