Concrete feat in Guinness World Records

May 2019

Three Sany 120 cu m batching plants installed by Navayuga Engineering at the Polavaram dam project site in Andhra Pradesh were part of an entry in Guinness World Records for the production of 32,100 cu m of concrete—the most concrete produced and poured in 24 hours continuously. In all, 3.4 million cu m of concrete are needed for this ongoing multipurpose dam for the irrigation department of the state.


At the Polavaram site, Navayuga Engineering is operating three 120 cu m Sany twin-shaft batching plants. These new-generation plants allow optimum batch size, have an intermediately aggregate weighing and discharge system, additional waiting hopper and a separate cement and fly-ash weighing system that give the customer 15 per cent higher productivity, 15 per cent less power consumption and 20 per cent lower operating cost for needing fewer spares than conventional batching plants of the same capacity.


A Sany 62 m boom pump also working at the Polavaram dam project site in Andhra Pradesh offers all the features of Sany higher-capacity boom pumps such as intelligent boom technology with one button stabilisation, boom anti-vibration technology, anti over swing technology, energy-saving technology, one button for low/high pressure changeover, self-diagnosis of faults, etc.


“Users are more aware of global technological advancements in concreting equipment and are willing to adopt such technologies for higher productivity, efficiency, greater convenience and lower operating costs,” remarks C R Jyothiraj, General Manager, Concrete Equipment Business Unit, Sany India.
