New concrete pump improves the production process and increases efficiency

SBTH is a construction company operating in the commercial and residential sectors. With strong demand in the sector and increased competition, the company needed to increase its competitiveness by investing in modernization of equipment.

The company used to transport cement to the sites by a crane. This method is costly, slow and is limited to sites accessible by a crane and not traffic congested. The crane is fed by generator consuming two litres of diesel to produce one cubic metre of concrete. The new pump will consume only one litre of diesel per cubic meter of product.

The investment allows to reduce by half the company’s energy consumption, leading to substantial cost savings. In addition, the new machine can be used in remote sites, increasing the company’s accessibility and business.

This project demonstrates that investments in energy efficiency are profitable, lead to additional benefits, enhance company’s competitiveness and go hand in hand with positive environmental impact.
