Recently, one HZS120 standard mixing plant was introduced from ZOOMLION Concrete Machinery Branch Company to ACU Port Industry Area of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and now it is being intensely assembled.
As the hit product of plant equipment, ZOOMLION standard mixing plant receives warm welcome from domestic and overseas customers for its stable operating system, sensitive weighing system, and reasonable structural layout. ZOOMLION mixing plant's entry into ACU Port Industry Area should be attributed to endeavors made by P0LIMIX, the largest concrete vendor of Brazil. It is worth saying that the booming Brazil concrete market is monopolized by five major groups, amongst which P0LIMIX ranks the top, and it is mainly engaged in diversified concrete production, with line of business covering asphalt, aggregate production, and construction machinery leasing. So far, P0LIMIX has set up concrete factories in different cities of 21 states of Brazil, and its line of business has been extended to such countries as Columbia, Argentina, Chile, and Peru etc. in South America.
At present, local concrete manufacturers do not employ the mixing equipment, and they lack professional operation room. Their production flow is as follows: after being weighed, cement, water, admixtures, and aggregate are mixed in the hopper and then put into the concrete mixer. Then, the mixer will run at high speed and transport mixing materials to the construction site, which results in low product pass rate. Some manufacturers employ the mixing equipment, but they are small in size and immature in technology, in addition to frequent problems in hardware and software, and thus they fail to achieve the anticipated production effect. Since ACU Port of Rio de Janeiro is one of the world largest port areas, enterprises from other countries successively settled in the port. During the construction process, the port industry area needs a lot of concrete, and production of given special concrete types depend on tiptop international equipment brands like ZOOMLION. Previously, P0LIMIX Group set up two mixing plants of other brands, but these plants are of simple structure, short assembling period, and unfavorable running effect.
P0LIMIX Group ever purchased truck-mounted concrete pumps from ZOOMLION in 2008 and achieved favorable working effect. Over the past several years, POLIMIX deepened the cooperation with ZOOMLION and installed ZOOMLION construction equipment in every corner of Brazil, making "ZOOMLION" turn into the first-class brand that is well known amongst the general public of Brazil. Presently, ACU Port Industry Area is staying at the inception phase of all-round construction. Source said that this port area was planned to have a built-up area that is equivalent to the area of 12,000 football pitches. Besides, Brazilian government is dedicated to turning ACU Port Industry Area into the world largest port area. Nowadays, infrastructure construction in Brazil is of heavy workload, and puts forward higher requirements to concrete quality, quantity, and benefit. After organizing repeated discussions and surveys, P0LIMIX Group held that ZOOMLION concrete plant totally met the requirements.
Presently, ZOOMLION's First Concrete Plant is under construction, and more than 50% of the construction has been completed, with left work mainly including electric installation, main building outsourcing and final commissioning. As we know, China's traditional Spring Festival is coming over the next 30 days. However, to meet the customer's production needs, the Plant Business Unit, through repeated communication and coordination, finally required Wang Linhua and Li Bin to postpone their schedule of returning to China and remain staying in Brazil for installation guidance till the two plants have been installed and commissioned. It is predicted that in April this year, both the spring for the nature and the spring for Brazil concrete industry will arrive!
