Vermeer India: In the Forefront of Trenchless Technology

T. Ramesh, Country Head, Vermeer India
T. Ramesh, Country Head, Vermeer India, speaks on the widening scope of trenchless technology and solutions offered by Veermer for India’s infra development sector.

Trenchless solution is used in constructing infrastructure for various segments and projects of different dimensions, ranging from roads and bridges to power and energy, telecom to oil and gas, water and sewerage etc. Different infrastructure projects require different methods such as horizontal directional drilling, tunnel boring, moling, auger boring, etc – Vermeer is providing all these solutions globally, with its wide range of equipment. In India, Vermeer offers the entire range of products but limited to size depending on the project’s requirement. In fact, trenchless technology is gaining traction in Indian projects across sectors. From its use in telecom, oil and gas sectors, it is now being considered for almost every sector. This change is due to greater awareness on its benefits and government regulations on trenching.

Trenchless technology is used for creating infrastructure a few metres below the ground, so the most important preliminary step in a project is to analyse the strata. This is generally done by the contracting companies who test and obtain the geological report of the jobsite. Based on the analysis, we suggest the most suitable combination of equipment for the job, as we have the requisite equipment and tools to handle both soft soil and hard rock.

Today, digitalisation/IoT-based features are changing the way how the market perceives construction equipment. From a basic tool, construction equipment has become extremely high-tech, and is greatly improving the project owner’s productivity and profitability with speed and efficiency of construction. Continuous advancements and technical upgradations in the construction equipment has optimized their utilisation, while bringing down construction time and cost.

The electronic features in Vermeer equipment are their backbone as they not only make it easy for the operator to understand the job’s complexities, but also enable safe and trouble-free operations through the equipment’s control modules and software updates. These help in tracking the machine’s performance parameters and in identifying faults, such that preventive maintenance can be initiated at the earliest, thus reducing the machine’s downtime. By following the operation guidelines provided through the digital media, the operator’s efficiency and productivity increases significantly.

At Vermeer, we feel that the need of the hour is enabling a good customer experience with timely support by our service team. We are focusing on improving our support system, increasing our business network, and our range of solutions. The Government has outlined huge plans for infra development across the country. Many projects are in the pipeline and many are on the verge of implementation. So, we envisage a lot of opportunities in the not too distant future.
