KYB-Conmat's Advanced Mechanization Parallel Lower Ganga Canal Lining Project
Tougher norms for quality & safety in the industry have pushed contractors & developers towards advanced mechanization for their projects to deliver quality results in set timelines. It has also increased safety in project execution.
The Parallel Lower Ganga Canal Project is a part of the World Bank aided UPWSRP program, which is a major water sector reforms initiative for achieving the broad objectives of the State Water Policy, with the main intervention objectives being sectoral reforms in the state is water sector in general, and irrigation and drainage sub-sectors in particular.
It has been a matter of pride for KYB-Conmat, a part of the Japanese Business Conglomerate KYB Group, that its Concrete Paver Machines are an integral part of the project, which would help the Ganges water reach thousands of people and their farms.
KYB-Conmat manufactures concrete batching plants, concrete paving machines, concrete transit mixers, concrete pumps and rackand-pinion elevators. It has a stateof-the-art Research & Development centre in India and in Japan, and it upgrades the designs of its equipment regularly to keep up with the latest technology. Its constant endeavour is to make its equipment more energyefficient, environment-friendly, and easy to operate.
For the prestigious Ganga Canal lining project, the contractor has selected KYB-Conmat Concrete Canal Paving Machines which are being used for 85% of the project. With high speed and accuracy of the Canal Paving machines, the project is going ahead of its estimated timeline.
The major challenge posed for KYB-Conmat in this project has been the heavy seepage from the adjacent canal. It was very tricky to manage the water build-up that happened as result of the seepage, creating a hindrance for the Canal Paving Machines to operate
