The term ‘plant’ refers to machinery, equipment and apparatus used for an industrial activity. Typically, in construction, ‘plant’ refers to heavy machinery and equipment used during construction works.
The various machines used in the project are:
- Boom Placer (36/4)
Boom placer is used for concrete pouring at different levels with the application of hydraulic jacks. Here ‘36’ is the reach in meters and ‘4’ stating the arms. 36m reach is distributed over 4 arms and in compact Z- folding this has astounding advantages.4 arms boom is easy to handle and it provides diversity in application. It can be operated manually or remotely.
Self-weight- Less than 26 tonne
Folding type- 4-arms Z-folding
Vertical Reach- 35.6 m
Horizontal reach- 31.4 m
Depth of reach- 23.9 m
End hose length- 4 m
Hopper capacity – 1 cum
Delivery rate- 60 cum/hr.
capacity- 15 tonne
Length of arm- 50 ft.
permissible vertical angle- 62˚
capacity can be varied by lifting it from different points throughout its arm length.
- ROC (Rock on crawler)
It is a pneumatic driller machine used for drilling vertically and horizontally.
- ELECTRIC OVERHEAD TRAVELLERELECTRIC
It is a gantry which is there in the machine hall for the purpose of carrying the Turbines and its parts to the machine hall from the service bay. It is having a carrying capacity of 160 tonnes but for safe working, it is 140 tonnes.
It is an electrical tool that is used to Tight the Stool Bolt below the invert for its support. It costs about 1.5 lakhs. It is used in the gantry for the lining purpose.
- Shotcrete Machine
wet shotcrete machine capacity – 9 cum/hr.
Air consumption- 7-8 cum/hr.
Maximum transport distance- 200m
Dry shotcrete machine capacity – 5-5.5 cum/hr
- Transit mixture (miller)
Transit mixture is used to transport the concrete from batching plant to the site. It keeps on revolving which prevents the concrete from setting. Capacity- 6 cum
- Dumper (HYVA)
A dumper is a truck used to transport loose material (such as sand, gravel, or demolished waste) for construction. Capacity- 14 cum
Excavators are heavy construction equipment consisting of a boom, dipper, bucket, and can on a rotating platform. It is used for digging trenches, foundation, and material handling.
Bucket capacity- 0.9 cum and 0.5
- Wheel Loader
A loader is used to move aside or load materials.
Capacity -3.1 cum
It is an arrangement of different mechanical parts used for the vertical lifting of loads.
Capacity – 10 tonne
