L&T dispatches special construction equipment to Border Roads Organisation
L&T Construction Equipment Limited (LTCEL), a wholly owned subsidiary of Larsen & Toubro, said that it had delivered the first batch of 25 special version Wheel Loaders to the Border Roads Organisation (BRO). LTCEL Wheel Loaders are top mining equipment manufacturers designed for use in tough terrains such as high elevations and adverse weather conditions.
These tough mining equipment companies in India (type L&T 9020) are outfitted with ‘Cold Starting Kits,’ allowing them to run in temperatures as low as -20 degrees Celsius. According to a statement provided by Larsen & Toubro, BRO would use them to reinforce road infrastructure in Northeast, North, and Northwest India (L&T). These machines, designed and developed by our Product Development Centre in Coimbatore as part of our commitment to Make in India and the Aatmanirbhar Bharat programme, feature more than 90% indigenous content, in keeping with the Government’s objective to boost local manufacturing.
BRO is India’s multidimensional, transnational construction organisation with construction and engineering recruitment specialists dedicated to satisfying the strategic demands of the armed forces to protect the nation’s security and integrity. It is critical in creating and maintaining operable road infrastructure in remote border areas, contributing to the socioeconomic growth of the region.
BRO has requested bids as part of the Government of India’s attempts to develop border roads and bridges. Despite intense competition from local and global industries, LTCEL won the contract to deliver 70 L&T 9020 Wheel Loaders, its single largest order.
Arvind K Garg, Executive Vice President and Head of L&T Construction and Mining Machinery Business (L&T CMB) and Director of LTCEL, stated: “LTCEL has been involved in the provision of indigenous machinery for several important objectives of the Indian Government. It has also supplied equipment for various purposes required by UN peacekeeping operations, Public Sector Units (PSUs), and the BRO, in addition to delivering them in huge quantities to private contractors constructing India’s infrastructure.”
LTCEL manufactures a wide range of Road Construction Equipment, including Vibratory Compactors, Pneumatic Tyred Rollers, Asphalt Pavers, Skid Steer Loaders, Wheel Loaders, and Hydraulic Excavators, as well as accessories like Crusher Buckets and Slope Compactors. It also produces and sells high-precision hydraulic components and customised systems for use in construction equipment, industrial machinery, and other technical fields.
The Border Roads Organisation (BRO), a company tasked with meeting the nation’s strategic needs, has received the first shipment of 25 special version Wheel Loaders from L&T mining equipment manufacturers. These machines can operate in challenging terrain, high elevations, and adverse weather conditions. These dependable machines (model L&T 9020) are equipped with “Cold Starting Kits” that allow them to function in temperatures as low as minus 20 degrees. They will be used by BRO to improve the country’s roads in the northeast, north, and northwest.
