Business Bhutan - - Business - Tsh­er­ing from Thim­phu

In an at­tempt to show­case the new model lineup and reach out to po­ten­tial Bhutanese cus­tomers, Bhutan Hyundai Equip­ment (BHE) in col­lab­o­ra­tion with its coun­ter­part in In­dia launched Hyundai 140LC-9 medium-sized ex­ca­va­tor in Thim­phu on Wed­nes­day.

The gen­eral man­ager of Bhutan Hyundai Mo­tors and also BHE, Pema Lodey said the launch of medi­um­sized ex­ca­va­tor will ben­e­fit con­trac­tors, who are un­able to buy big­ger size ex­ca­va­tors and that it would re­duce the costs for con­trac­tors too.

He added that the goal of BHE is make Hyundai equip­ment the num­ber one choice and brand of the Bhutanese cus­tomers and give peo­ple choices to buy.

Hyundai 140LC-9 medium-sized ex­ca­va­tor re­port­edly con­sumes less fuel com­pared to other fuel-based ex­ca­va­tors. It’s also con­sid­ered en­vi­ron­men­tal friendly and re­port­edly goes well with the govern­ment’s pol­icy to re­duce de­pen­dence on fos­sil fu­els and im­prov­ing bal­ance of trade sit­u­a­tion in the coun­try.

Mean­while, BHE was awarded the dis­trib­u­tor­ship of this ex­ca­va­tor in May last year. The com­pany aims to of­fer cus­tomers a choice of ma­chines with su­pe­rior per­for­mance, low main­te­nance, and an­a­lyt­i­cal ca­pa­bil­ity.

The gen­eral man­ager of Hyundai Con­struc­tion Equip­ment based in Pune in In­dia, Lee said the new ex­ca­va­tor is an up­graded ver­sion with more power and that it is suitable for the Bhutanese cus­tomers given the coun­try’s moun­tain­ous and rugged ter­rains.

He added that there are also a lot of po­ten­tials to sell new ma­chines in the Bhutanese mar­ket con­sid­er­ing that it’s one of the grow­ing na­tions in Asia with lots of hy­dropower projects com­ing up.

Sales and Mar­ket­ing Head of Hyundai Con­struc­tion Equip­ment, Shar­wan said cus­tomers will ex­pe­ri­ence low cost on the main­te­nance of the 140LC-9 medium-sized ex­ca­va­tor, be­sides safe op­er­a­tion for op­er­a­tor and com­fort af­ter work­ing for long hours.

He added, “We fo­cus more on fuel con­sump­tion, sta­bil­ity, and en­vi­ron­ment friendly tech­nol­ogy.”

All the fea­tures of the ex­ca­va­tor from BHE has been, mean­while, de­signed and as­sem­bled with the main aim to max­i­mize torque, min­i­mize waste of fuel and en­ergy, and in­crease prof­itabil­ity.
