Infrastructure sector is propelling India’s overall development and enjoys intense support from the government policies targeted at creating world-class infrastructure in the country.
With the government’s plan to invest around $ 1.4 trillion in infrastructure projects including ports, highways, railways, airports and educational institutions, India’s economy is set for a major boost.
Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) is at the forefront of supporting this growth across India. From Bellary, Maharashtra to Bangalore, Volvo CE machines are powering contractors complete projects on time or even ahead of the schedule.
Pride of Contractors
Prabhakar Reddy, a public works contractor in Bellary, Karnataka, India, says a fleet of Volvo CE machines helped his company on prestigious projects including the 344 km NH-167 highway. the highway stretches from Hagaribommanahalli in Karnataka to Jadcherla in Telangana.
The Volvo CE fleet includes two DD100 asphalt compactors, four DD90B asphalt compactors and a P5320B ABG tracked sensor paver. Reddy says the P5320B ABG tracked sensor paver stands alone in its class in terms of paving quality and hassle-free operations.
Meanwhile a Maharashtra-based road construction contractor Deshmukh & Co completed the development of a 130 km road from Aurangabad to Dhule in four months with the help of a Volvo P4370B ABG sensor paver.
“We average 5 km a day with the Volvo P4370B paver,” said Balasaheb Deshmukh, chairman and managing director of Deshmukh & Co. “While the P4370B delivers quick work, it doesn’t compromise on quality either. Every road is laid smoothly, consistently and flawlessly.”
A West Bengal-based contractor Bharat Vanijya is using a fleet of Volvo machines for an 84 km road project from Bankura to Purulia. On site since September 2015 the fleet comprising of 16 EC210B 20 ton-class crawler excavators, seven SD110BA single drum compactors, three 10 ton DD100 double drum asphalt compactors, one PT200 pneumatic tire roller, one P4370B ABG wheeled paver and a P5320B ABG tracked paver. The high-performing fleet of machines from Volvo CE are connecting two disadvantaged districts to boost economic development.
