Commitment to build the nation’s infrastructure, with no compromise on the environment, was the key, to Navayuga’s decision, to procure a series of MARINI MAC’s, states Blesson Varghese Marini India’s National Director.

Navayuga clearly understands that to realize profitability the only route is sustainable construction and high productivity, adds Navayuga’s VP Roads Mr. K V Rambabu. The top management team at Navayuga was convinced, that it was imperative to minimise plant running costs, which could be achieved only by high reliability & productivity. Moreover the project’s nature demanded high performance and absolutely high quality mix.

The new generation of energy efficient asphalt plants from MARINI has been developed to meet customers’ demands for versatility, quality and environmentally-friendly requirements. The first MARINI MAC commissioned by a team of engineers from MARINI INDIA, produced around 1200 tons of high quality mix on day one and has now almost fulfilled its project demands. The plant will be ready to move in mid 2011, to another project site.


Zero Civil foundations, modular designs, zero ducts and minimal interfaces, ensured that the plant was put in to operation in a very short time. Mr. Narendra – P&M Manager, confidently smiles as he adds, “the entire process is so user friendly, that we feel confident that our own team could move the plant and re-commission it at the new site.”

To minimise energy consumption at all stages of the process, the MARINI MAC uses a combination of innovative design along with waste heat recovery system, to bring significant energy savings throughout. The high efficiency dryer & blue flame assisted burner design provide savings of over 20 %, compared to traditional designs of asphalt plants in India.
