Indian contractors are working with Plasser & Theurer machines

In the West corridor alone, the project consists of laying about 1,400 km of track, installing numerous turnouts, building more than 1,300 bridges and 20 stations as well as supplying the required equipment. Such construction projects require the latest technologies and state-of-the-art methods of international railway construction.

The construction tasks are placed in lots, with all the large Indian construction companies being involved, such as IRCON, Tata, L&T Larsen & Toubro and GMR Group. All companies rely on the efficiency and quality of our machines and work with different machine types on these construction sites.

GMR starts with a modern machine fleet

GMR Group, as a new entrant into the track construction business, is involved in the construction of the Eastern corridor. The company uses two continuous action SVM 1000 I track laying machines which were purchased in the last two years.

In addition, GMR uses two Duomatic 08-32 C track tamping machines, one Unimat 08-275 3S universal tamping machine, two PBR 400 ballast profiling machines with integrated turntable and one DGS 62 N Dynamic Track Stabiliser for the associated construction tasks.

Larsen & Toubro uses Plasser & Theurer technology

L&T Larsen & Toubro, India’s largest construction company, is mainly active in the construction of roads, industrial plants, airports, urban development, but also in metro systems. Now, L&T carries out its first large construction project on a standard gauge railway in the West corridor, using one SVM 1000 I track laying machine and the machines for track maintenance (Unimat 08-275 3S, Duomatic 08-32 C, PBR 400, DGS 62).
