KYB-Con­mat's Ad­vanced Mech­a­niza­tion Par­al­lel Lower Ganga Canal Lin­ing Project

NBM&CW - - CASE STUDY -

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
