Gmmco East successfully commissioned a Cat® 773E Truck on 17th October, 2012 in Zuari Cements’ plant at Krishna Nagar, Kadapa Dist, AP. This is the first Cat 773E 60t truck introduced in an AP cement plant. Site personnel of Zuari Cement were present on this auspicious occasion.
Two more of the same trucks, part of the same order, are to be commissioned in December 2012 at the same plant.
While the 4 million tonne per annum cement plant already has an active fleet of five Cat 1035 Dumpers and five Cat 2012 Loaders, this breakthrough order for three Cat 773E trucks is a first and was received despite tough competition from other companies whose trucks are already working at the site. Hence its significance.
The order is expected to move many more cement companies in AP towards Gmmco and Caterpillar by proving the efficiency, productivity and safety of Cat trucks.
