A benchmark in Nepal’s Nagdhunga-Naubise tunnel road project
KYB Conmat’s concrete mixer and batching plants are helping complete the job
Nagdhunga tunnel construction project is the first road tunnel construction project in Nepal being built with Japanese loan assistance of 16,636 billion yen. The project aims to improve the road condition around Nagdhunga pass ensuring smooth transportation network between Kathmandu and other principal areas/cities in Nepal, contributing to local socioeconomic development. The total length of the tunnel is 2.69 kms and its estimated completion date of the project is August 2022.
Hon’be Prime Minister of Nepal Shri KP Sharma Oli laid the foundation stone of the Nagdhunga-Naubise tunnel road project — the first of its type project in the country. The government had inked an agreement with Hazama Ando Corporation to construct the tunnel project, which is a Japanese firm. Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) is the development partner of the Nagdhunga-Naubise project and had earlier finalised the evaluation of both the technical and financial proposals that were submitted by the Japanese contractor.
JICA is providing loan assistance of $141.41 million to the government for the construction of the tunnel project. The estimated cost of the project hovers around $188.19 million. The remaining cost of the project will be borne by the government. The government has allocated Rs 6.27 billion for the project in the budget for the ongoing fiscal year.
KYB-Conmat is proud to be associated with one of the most prestigious project of all time, which is also the pride project in Nepal, Nagdhunga-Naubise Tunnel. Our four concrete mixer is supplied to the Hazama Ando Corporation to construct the tunnel project, the project, which is quite challenging, since this type of long tunnel construction is happening for the first time in Nepal. KYB-Conmat has joined hands with Ando Corporation for this project. It is also committed to supply state-of-the-art concrete batching plant for this project.
“It is a prestigious international level project in Nepal and we are proud to be associated with the same. The Ando Corporation team felt that this is challenging project for them, so they were looking for a concrete partner who should be committed and can perform as per their expectation, our machines are designed to work with no barriers and thus not only KYB-Conmat equipment saves the time & workforce, but also the capital cost overall” – Sailaj Verma, senior VP, sales, KYB-Conmat.
KYB-Conmat concrete mixers are produced in India with technology developed and tested by KYB in Japan. Its mixers are developed and tested for many years by simulation Indian working conditions and has gone through rigorous trails in tandem with Conmat using state-of-the-art sensing and monitoring devices. Its MR series concrete mixers has very high speed concrete charge and discharges for increased productivity, and can handle very low slump concrete, hence can be used in variety of construction jobs. Our products are delivered to customers around the world with high quality and safety propelled by Japanese technology.
