In his message, Arvind K. Garg, Executive Vice-President & Head-CMB, complimented the L&T team on getting the magnificent machine ready for operation, despite many challenges. He said the supply has reaffirmed L&T’s commitment to customers and its technical capabilities, and has opened a new chapter in the strategic relationship between L&T and Coal India Limited towards accelerating coal output in the country.
Despite the Covid-19 challenge, L&T team could assemble and deliver the machine within the 30-day deadline. The machine was shipped from Komatsu Ltd, Germany, in segments. The assembly, erection and commissioning at site was carried out by L&T’s dedicated team of engineers, welders, machinists, electricians, and others.
