Igatpuri Tunnel Afcons 2

Afcons Igatpuri’s mega tunnels of the 700 km Mumbai-Nagpur Super Communication Expressway project, which are also Maharashtra’s longest and India’s widest road tunnels (8km long and 17.6m wide), have become a source of fascination. This project aims to reduce travel time between the two cities to 8-9 hours from 14-15 now. Built to negotiate the altitude difference of the Kasara Ghats, these tunnels will enthrall motorists with a drive through hills, and on a viaduct that is hoisted 60m above ground level. The Project is ahead of schedule and hopes to continue with the same tenacity and speed.

Afcons started tunnelling activities in September 2019 and completed both tunnels in September 2021. As per Afcons Execution team, Breakthroughs are special in any tunnelling project globally but achieving four of them ahead of schedule especially during Covid, makes it extra special and it would have never been possible without the Crushing Plants from Terex MPS. Timely installation and hassle-free operation of these plants delivered more than 12,00,000 lacs MT of aggregates in record time. The Terex Service & Support team were available round the clock even during the peak of pandemic.

“We installed Terex MPS 200 TPH III Stage Plant for the project. The plant was installed in September 2020 and has crossed more than 7000 hours. Even during pandemic, when there were movement restrictions in Maharashtra, Terex provided excellent service support. Terex Team worked along with us to understand our requirement and suggested suitable solutions to ensure optimum plant performance at site, exceeding our expectations,” says Mr. Mihir Mishra, J.G.M - CPE. He further adds that, “Terex utilizes advance technology of Fixed Shaft Cone Crusher which produces good quality aggregates at lowest operating cost. The Plant not only produced good quality aggregates but also high-quality sand.”

“We received full cooperation from Terex MPS team right from supply to installation stage to commissioning of the plant and service support till date. When we decide on crushing plant, Quality, Reliability, and lower Operating Costs were the major criteria, and I believe Terex Solutions met all of these parameters, giving it an edge over competition. Even for our overseas projects in Central Africa, we went with Terex solutions,” says Mr. Amol Kulkarni, Senior Manager Procurement.
