Schwing Stetter India Pvt Ltd, the Indian arm of Schwing Gmbh, Germany, and a leading player in the Indian concrete equipment industry, has launched the S-36, Schwing India’s latest truck-mounted concrete pump. The S-36 is the company’s fifth improved variant and will join other Schwing truck-mounted concrete pump products such as the S-17 range, KVM-32 range, S-32 range and KVM-34 XG-5 range for the Indian market.
The S-36 truck-mounted concrete pump is ideal for the three-axle truck variety, widely popular in India. The state-of-the-art vector control system helps customers plan their maintenance schedules in the most efficient way, and assures high returns on investment with an average output of 90 cubic metres of concrete per hour.
The pump allows for placement of concrete at distances of more than 100 feet vertically and 90 feet horizontally. Designed and manufactured according to the most stringent international testing standards, the S-36 truck-mounted concrete pump is extremely fuel-efficient and demands minimal maintenance, thereby ensuring operational reliability and intended operational life. Compared to the existing fleet of truck-mounted concrete pumps, S-36 occupies minimal space and can pump concrete upto 10 floors.
Speaking at the launch of S-36 truck-mounted concrete pump, Anand Sundaresan, Managing Director, Schwing Stetter India, said, “Today, technology is playing an increasingly important role in the construction sector, enabling clients to optimise their investments. Keeping this in mind, we at Schwing have always introduced products which reduce the possibilities for errors, while being extremely cost-effective.”
Schwing Stetter India has also been internationally recognised for the world record set by the company in pumping concrete vertically up to a record height of 715 metres for the Parbati hydro-electric project in Suind village, Himachal Pradesh. The project is being implemented by the National Hydro-electric Corporation. Schwing Stetter India supplied BP 4000 super concrete pumps to Gammon India, which is executing the project for pumping concrete from the bottom of the tunnel to the top of the tunnel—a total length of 1,500 metres at an inclination of 30. The record set as part of the project was recognised on August 7, 2009.
