Vice President, Projects, Marathon Group
Schwing Stetter Concrete equipment used:
We started using Schwing Stetter equipment in the year 2004 with our project Marathon Era which is a 32 storeyed residential building with a height of 120 meters. We used CP30 batching plant and BP1800 concrete pump for this project. Schwing Stetter, with their German technology provided us with reliable and cost-effective technology that has led to successful completion of our projects.
Currently we are using Schwing Stetter equipment like: Batching Plants – CP30, CP18 and Concrete Pumps – BP1800, SP1400 and SP1800.
Himachal Pradesh Power Corporation is constructing a 100 MW Power Project at Sainj Himachal Pradesh. The project was awarded to M/s Hindustan Construction Company, which was started in the year 2010 and it is expected to complete in 48 months. The project involves the construction of tunnel with a length of Six km and height of four meters.
The critical task of concrete placing in to the HRT lining involves huge challenges; one of it is to take the concrete in to such distances. In order to speed up this task, HCC opted for long distance pumping instead of conventional method of transporting the concrete in the 4 meters tunnel. The first phase is 1380 meters long, second, third and fourth is 2700 meters, 2350 meters and 2000 meters respectively. Once completed the 2700mtr pumping will be a world record for this category.
Engineers from HCC, BASF and Schwing Stetter meticulously planned and countered all the problems faced while implementation. Till now more than 1300 m3 of concrete is placed at a distance of 1380 meters with Schwing SP4800 pump. The Schwing water cleaning system ensured that the concrete in the line, of around 24 m3, is pumped in to the gantry after each pour.
HCC gave operation and maintenance (OMC) contract for its Schwing SP4800 pump to Schwing Stetter for this project. It involved the operation and maintenance of pump along with Concrete pipe line DN-150 at various thicknesses. HCC produced M-25 grade concrete from the Schwing Stetter’s CP30 batching plant and has to place around 35000 m3 of concrete for the first and second phase.
Schwing Stetter SP 1400 Concrete pump has achieved a new record of 108 meters vertical pumping at residential building by M/S Creative Constructions in Thane. The building consists of ground floor, two podiums and 32 floors had a vertical height of 4 meters, 8 meters and 96 meters respectively. The customer has pumped 7000 m3 of concrete in different grades like M25, M30, M40 and M60 at Rustomjee’s Urbania site in Thane.
During this period the performance of the pump was highly appreciated by the customer as they have already pumped 101meters vertically as against the 90 meter assured by us. According to Creative Constructions “The pumps existing performance has made us bold enough to target 108 meters the top most height of the building where concreting is to be done. Having on hand experience of the performance of the SP 1400 concrete pump gives us an opportunity to recommend it to the prospective customers of Schwing Stetter.”
Customer meet were recently conducted in Barshi and Amravathi, Maharastra. The event was organised to educate the customer on RMC equipments manufactured by Schwing Stetter India. The various delegates like contractors, irrigation engineers, stone crusher owners and builders attended this event. The event also covered topics like mixing technology, pumpable aggregates, RMC Benefit, Valve technology and Transit mixers etc. The gathering was well appreciated by our customer in both the regions.
Schwing Stetter’s Chandigarh Branch office has been shifted from its previous location to D-91 –PH-VII, Industrial Area, Mohali, Punjab- Pin No: 160055 and Phone : 0172-3957500/3957501/3957503. The new office was inaugurated recently keeping in mind to make our customer approach us easily.
