Grasim Industries Limited
Grasim Industries Ltd is a flagship company of Aditya Birla Group. Customer had a requirement of continuous log feeding at their Chipper unit. Operation was being handled by two units of Excavators in each shift. Customer was facing low efficiency due to spillage & inefficient handling of logs. Also unreliability of operation due to frequent breakdown, high operation cost due to diesel run machine & a backup machine had to be kept ready for any breakdown.
We visited Grasim site located at Harihar, Karnataka and offered solution with Sennebogen model 818 Electric. Machine was offered on mobile undercarriage with diesel travel powerpack, 9 meter boomstick configuration and moveable cabin to ensure better operational area view by the operator. The machine works with 0.6 cbm log grab to feed the chipper unit hopper. Sennebogen machines are in operation for approximately 18 hours per day.
Sennebogen 818 electric model were commissioned at Harihar plant in 2017.
