German Power Packages, Make in India


Based out of their factory in Goa, Putzmeister has been churning out top notch quality Concrete Equipment that have been specially innovated and designed for the rough conditions presiding in India.


“Infrastructure projects led by roads, metros, bridges and power stations are currently driving the demand for concrete systems and we expect this to continue. Rapid development in Tier II cities is also a major source of demand and a current driver,” says Wilfried A Theissen, Managing Director, Putzmeister India.


The Indian concrete pump market is distinct from mature markets. “In mature markets like the USA, Europe and even China, truck mounted pumps are the main product lines,” observes Theissen. “In India, however, stationary pumps with an hourly output of 40-90 m³ dominate the market.”



Automation in Putzmeister stationary and truck mounted boom pumps, allows operators to monitor the fuel consumption, hydraulic oil heat control, pressure, output, engine performance, etc. “The ability to synchronise the engine output with the required pumping output introduces operational efficiencies, a growing consumer priority” says Theissen. Compared to other concrete pumps, the BSA eSmart range and the new generation truck-mounted concrete pumps from Putzmeister featuring Open Pumping System technology can save up to 50 per cent oil without compromising on output performance. The Truck-Mounted concrete pumps are also equipped with electronic safety sensors and one side support for better manoeuvrability in confined spaces.


Putzmeister ‘s Ultimate Batching Plant

MT-1.0, the 60m3/h power package



Adding to the comprehensive product range, Putzmeister is pleased to offer its clientele the Batching plant, MT 1.0 with an output capacity of 60 m³/hr, followed by the MT 0.5, with an output capacity of 30 m3/hr. Both were exclusively designed for the Indian market and have proven their robustness and performance since their launch last year. Putzmeister’s MT-1.0, the 60m3/h powered with the BHS Sonthofen Mixer, renowned for “transforming materials into real value”.


Looking at the latest major land marks in India, Putzmeister has been a steady partner in building one of the world’s largest oil refineries which produces 1.24 million barrels of oil per day, namely the Reliance Oil Refinery in Jamnagar, Gujarat. At the peak of construction over forty truck mounted boom pumps pumped and placed concrete simultaneously in one of the world’s most remarkable projects.


Another highlight in residential projects is Bengaluru’s 5th largest building and the biggest luxury commercial property project, the UB Towers. Using BSA 1408 HD, M30 grade of concrete has been pumped to a height of 130m, giving rise to the target height of this esteemed project of 145 m. This project is built on a total area of 13 acres, a built-up space of 1,000,000 sq. ft. of high-end commercial, retail and service apartment space.


Many more prestigious projects across India stand as a proof of stakeholders’ unwavering faith in the efficacy of Putzmeister’s concreting technology in getting the job done.
