KYB Conmat's stationary concrete batching plant is creating a benchmark at the Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir, Mathura.
Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir is the world's tallest temple under-construction at Vrindavan, Mathura, India. At cost of Rs 3 billion, it will be one of the most expensively built temples in the world by ISKCON Bengaluru. The temple has a footprint of about 5 acre and rises to a height of about 700 ft (213 m or 70 floors) and a built-up area of 540,000 sq ft. The temple will have a capsule elevator that takes visitors from the ground level to the 700 ft tall viewing gallery.
Moving concrete worldwide
KYB's stationary concrete batching plants are successfully deployed worldwide, whenever demand arises in infrastructure development where concrete is involved. The company's presence is strong in concrete road construction, metro-rail construction, high-rise construction, dam construction and several other crucial areas.
KYB-Conmat is proud to be associated with such a prestigious project as the Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir. The stationary concrete batching plant CRP-900 IL5 is being used by VCM for this project that is not conventional, but is carved, circular and three dimensional, which makes this project quite challenging, since this type of architecture is happening for the first time in India.
"It is an international level project with beautiful architecture in India, and we are proud to be connected with this prestigious project. The VCM team felt that this is challenging for them, so they were looking for a concrete partner who should be committed and can perform as per their expectation. We have multiple other machines such as concrete batching plants and transit mixers of KYB-Conmat working perfectly with no barriers, and so, not only will the KYB-Conmat equipment save time and workforce, but also the capital cost overall," says Sailaj Verma, Senior Vice President-Sales, KYB-Conmat.
The team, along with the project manager, came specially from Mathura to the company's head office at Vadodara to see the process, as they wanted to produce special type of concrete for the temple called self compacting concrete, a highly flowable and a non-segregating concrete that can spread into place, fill the formwork and encapsulate the reinforcement without any mechanical consolidation. After the team got convinced, the temple team has placed an order for procuring a 90 cu m per hour batching plant from KYB Conmat, a Japanese-Indian firm. Another order for three transit mixers of 7 cu m capacity was also placed.
"KYB-Conmat products are the most reliable and also the best service provider, they are also versatile and robust. With a backup of good after-sales service and easy availability of spare parts, it did make sense for us to use KYB-Conmat machines for the construction of the most notable temple in the world," says Abhishek Prakash, Project Manager, Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir.
