The infrastructure in India is developing at an unprecedented rate and Volvo Construction Equipment machines are providing crucial support to aid this growth.

Volvo CE helps speeding infra development

The Infrastructure sector is a key driver for the Indian economy. It is propelling India’s overall development and enjoys intense support from government policies aimed at creating world-class infrastructure in the country. With Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s plan to invest close to USD $1.4 trillion to build modern ports, highways, railways, airports, hospitals and educational institutions, India’s economy is set for a major boost.

Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) is at the forefront of supporting this growth across India. From Bellary, Maharashtra to Bangalore, Volvo CE machines are providing efficient, high performance to help contractors complete projects on time or even ahead of the schedule.

Improving the future of Bellary
Paving quality roads is a source of pride for P. Prabhakar Reddy, a public works contractor in Bellary, Karnataka, where a fleet of Volvo CE machines helped in constructing prestigious projects including the 344 km NH-167 highway, which stretches from Hagaribommanahalli in Karnataka to Jadcherla in Telangana.

“Tough, smooth roads generate more growth and vibrancy in the economy and definitely more smiles,” says Reddy. “Better road qualities mean better quality of life and living — that’s the bottom line!”

The Volvo CE fleet includes two DD100 asphalt compactors, four DD90B asphalt compactors and a P5320B ABG tracked sensor paver. According to Reddy, the P5320B ABG tracked sensor paver stands alone in its class in terms of paving quality and hassle-free operations. He is also pleasantly surprised that even with the sophisticated design of the paver to boost paving quality, productivity, fuel and efficiency, the paver is still easy to operate. In his words: “Every Volvo Equipment delivers outstanding performance, particularly the Volvo P5320B ABG tracked sensor paver. We get the excellent finish we look for in every project — without fail!”

The road to excellence
Meanwhile in Maharashtra, road construction contractor Deshmukh & Co have completed the redevelopment of a 130 km road from Aurangabad to Dhule in just four months, thanks to the Volvo P4370B ABG sensor paver. “We averaged 5 km a day with the Volvo P4370B paver,” says Balasaheb Deshmukh, CMD of Deshmukh & Co. “While the P4370B delivers quick work, it doesn’t compromise on quality and every road is finished smoothly, consistently and flawlessly.”

In West Bengal, contractor Bharat Vanijya is using a fleet of Volvo machines for an 84 km road project from Bankura to Purulia. On site since September 2015 the fleet comprises 16 EC210B 20 ton-class crawler excavators, seven SD110BA single drum compactors, three 10 ton DD100 double drum asphalt compactors, a PT200 pneumatic tire roller, a P4370B ABG wheeled paver, and a P5320B ABG tracked paver. The high-performing fleet of machines from Volvo CE are connecting two disadvantaged districts to boost economic development.

“The future for India’s infrastructure is promising,” says Dimitrov Krishnan, Head & VP, Volvo CE Hub India. “We look forward to helping India pave the road to excellence with reliable and efficient Volvo CE machines.”

Paving the future
In addition to road developments, the Indian government is also increasing the number of commercial airports and improving existing ones. Two construction companies — RBR & Co. and SVR Engineering Constructions — are using a fleet of Volvo CE machines to construct taxiways, terminals and runways at the Kempegowda Bangalore International Airport. Both customers appreciate the efficiency and fuel savings of the machines.

“Volvo equipment efficiency coupled with the dedication of its service personnel is a huge advantage to customers like us,” says I. R. Sreenivasulu Reddy, Managing Partner, RBR & Co. “We have around nine excavators and three compactors. The better digging capacity and low cycling time makes it a fast, superior machine compared to others.”

In 2018, Kempegowda Bangalore International Airport served 33.3 million passengers and is expanding to cater to the long term demands of India’s aviation market (according to the Hindu Business Online). At the airport, the fleet of Volvo CE machines are working full throttle to complete the second runway and terminal besides other support infrastructure.

For SVR Engineering Constructions, Volvo’s efficient aftermarket service is another reason why they have relied on the company’s construction equipment for close to two decades. “Volvo CE offers the latest technology with low fuel consumption, reliability and high uptime products in the market,” avers Vinod Reddy, Managing Partner at SVR Engineering Constructions. “The staff’s product knowledge, customer service and helpful attitude are the reasons why I continue to choose Volvo machines.”
