KYB Conmat Tora Batching Plant used for Nepal’s Dharahara Tower reconstruction

KYB-Conmat is honoured to join hands with the Nepal Reconstruction Authority for the prestigious Dharahara project. Also called Bhimsen Tower, this nine-storey, 61.88-metre-tall (203 ft) tower at the centre of Sundhara in Kathmandu, was built in 1832 by Mukhtiyar (equivalent to prime minister) Bhimsen Thapa under the commission of Queen Lalit Tripura Sundari and was a part of the architecture of Kathmandu recognized by UNESCO. Rising over the rooftops like a gleaming white candlestick, the Bhimsen Tower was crammed with sightseers during the massive earthquake in 2015. More than a hundred people were killed when the tower collapsed.

The government of Nepal has announced that this Kathmandu landmark will rise again, adding to a growing list of monuments restored after the 2015 disaster. Over the coming months, a new Dharahara will rise beside the old tower (which today is little more than a ruined plinth) and will be funded by the Nepal Reconstruction Authority, the government body leading the reconstruction effort.

Although aesthetically similar to the old tower, the new tower will be built from modern materials using the latest earthquake-resistant technology, climbing 11 storeys above street level and topping out at 245 feet (75m), compared to 203 feet (62m) of the old tower. The ruined base of the original Dharahara will be preserved as a memorial to those killed in the disaster.

KYB Conmat Tora Batching Plant

“Reconstruction of the historic Dharahara Tower, with its beautiful architecture, was a challenge for the Nepal Reconstruction Authority and they were looking for a concrete partner who would be committed to the project and would perform as per their expectation. The deployment of KYB products worldwide, attracted their attention and we get associated with the most prestigious project of all time and pride of Nepal. Our Tora batching plant - 450 is used for construction of Dharahara Tower. Other machines like concrete batching plants and transit mixers are also working perfectly with no problems, and saving construction time and workforce, and also the overall capital cost,” said Premraj Keshyep, Managing Director, KYB-Conmat Pvt. Ltd.

“All KYB-Conmat products are robust, reliable and versatile. The company is the best service provider, with a good after-sales service team and easy availability of spare parts. These are our USPs which led us to get associated with the construction of the most historic monument of the world,” said Raman Mahato, Project Director at Raman Construction.

KYB-Conmat moves Concrete Worldwide
KYB-CONMAT, a subsidiary of Multi-Billion Dollar KYB Corporation of Japan, is a trusted name and market leader in Concrete Equipment Industry.
