Ramky produces 4000 tons of high quality and environment friendly asphalt mix in less than 21 hours on their Marini MAC 200 asphalt plant, creating a world record in terms of productivity and efficiency.
Profitable production technology available to professional Indian contractors
On 16 December 2011, the Marini MAC 200, plant installed at Ramky’s NAM project site produced over 4000 tons of high quality asphalt mix in little less than 21 hours, creating a historical landmark and re writing its own historical benchmarks. The MAC 200 plants have clocked around 3000 tons several times at numerous job sites pan India, however 4000 plus tons of asphalt on a single day, is the new industry benchmark. When Ramky began work on the 212 Km long Narkatpali – Addaniki- Medarametla road project, they simply didn’t want to construct a highway. Mr. Y Nagaraja MD, Ramky, wanted the project to be a model for sustainable development. The sheer size of the project called for a continuous production of asphalt in large quantities and high quality. Commitment to sustainable development and focus on leadership in the infrastructure development industry, were the key drivers behind Ramky installing Marini plants on this project.
World record, very routine

It was just a normal production day for us at the site, states Srikanth, at the helm of plant production. Marini plants are designed to perform. The plant works very smoothly and loves to be revved up to its capacity. Everyday we run at its full capacity, with great ease, he further adds. By the time the plant was shut down, the team had already laid over 4000 tons of hot mix asphalt. Little did they realize that, they had set a world record with the Marini plant.

Years of Indian site experience and knowledge are built in to Marini products. The plant has intuitive design features like the perfectly sized bag house filter and dryer, tuned to perform even under high dust content in the cold aggregates.
The Marini dryer and filtering system is intuitively designed to ensure that dust take off is reduced drastically, thereby a Marini user never faces troubles with blocking of bag house filters and resulting low fuel efficiency.
Indian sites have issues with gradation and at times quality of aggregates, these situations are handled well by the patented Marini dryer drum and a very reliable screening unit.
Productivity & Profitability
Round the clock – very easy
The reason we are able to operate the plant so stress free is due to its reliability, performance and ease in operations – states Sathish Kumar, Senior Support Manager on Ramky’s NAM project. Round the clock operations are very easy, the highly reliable control system, automatic process controls, and ease in operations keep the plant operators devoid of any stress and extended working hours are always a pleasure, he further adds.
Very productive, very profitable
In an age of tough competition where every dime matters, Productivity is no secret for profitability. It is needless to mention that productivity can never be achieved without reliability. By producing 4000 tons of asphalt flat out on the MARINI plant, Ramky could cut nearly 20 % or even more of carbon emission compared to piece meal production on lesser efficient and lower reliable plants. These reductions in carbon footprints, are directly linked to the profits.
Marini plants have been clocking exceptional fuel efficiency and once again on the Ramky project they proved to be unbeatable.
