Putzmeister contributes to world record concrete pour at Polavaram

A Putzmeister Operations & Management team helped Navayuga Engineering Company (NECL) set Guinness world records for largest continuous concrete pour and most concrete continuously poured in 24 hours at the Polavaram dam project. As much as 32,315.5 cu m of concrete was continuously poured for 24 hours to achieve this record.

The Putzmeister team of 50 did this with the help of four Putzmeister Telebelt – TBS 130, TB 200 and TBS 600, one Putzmeister truck-mounted concrete pump BSF 42, 20 agitators and four surgecretes. All Putzmeister equipment had a 100 per cent uptime.

Putzmeister has been working on the Polavaram dam project since work on the foundation for the spillway started towards the end of 2016. Till date, the team has transported and placed 1.5 million cu m of concrete.
