Export by Technical Excellence

Hansavivek KAMANl ENGINEERING has completed the first US order for 6,000 tonnes involving a "high degree of sophistication and engineering technology" and has won approbation of reputed international consulting engineers in the power generation and transmission field. This will stand the company in good stead, since the US holds the biggest potential for export in this line. The Rs six-crore Sudan turn-key project of supply and construction of transmission line towers is expected to be completed early next year. During the year to September 1969, the company's export realisation almost double- ed at Rs 1.81 crores to lift the five- year total to around Rs 5.2 crores and helped it gain recognition as an export house. Having acquired the specialised skill of stringing on a 'hot' line, regarded as a hazardous task, the company earned a bonus for completing such type of work in Kerala well ahead of time. It has geared itself to meet all requirements for the 400 kV projects that are to be launched soon in the country. Work on railway electrification between Baroda and Ahmedabad has started. The tower testing unit at Jaipur drew praise from the Iranian power authorities for the series of tower tests conducted for them. The Jaipur factory, which began production only two years ago, is now capable of producing 18,000 tonnes per annum. The latest type of galvanising bath with fully automatic controls has been installed and commissioned without assistance of foreign engineers. The company has diversified into heavy civil engineering and machinery erection. Moreover, prototype models of several new items are being tested for marketing. The research and development division has enabled the company to save on raw materials.
