By Joe C. Mathew
Schwing Stetter India Pvt. Ltd, a 100 per cent subsidiary of Schwing Stetter GmbH, Germany, a leading RMC equipment manufacturer, has set a world record by producing 13,005 cubic metres (cbm) of concrete in a single month, using a 30 cum/hr capacity batching plant 'CP-30'.
The average monthly output for similar batching plants around the world is 6,000-7,000 cubic metres. The CP-30 batching plant was set up in 2001 for L&T's RMC division in Bangalore, to cater to local demand and it has delivered with almost zero per cent downtime.
Expressing satisfaction over the feat, Anand Sundaresan, Managing Director, Schwing Stetter (India) Pvt. Ltd, said, "We have installed around 500 units worldwide of which 250 units are in India alone."
The CP-30 batching plant with microprocessor controlled admixing and moisture optimising systems offers 90 different concrete formulations, proportion and quantity calculations.
