Indeco Hammers Used for Mexican Bridge Construction

Published: 30/9, 2019

Indeco Mexio sold ten hammers to Volvo dealer Ascendum in six months. Their first order was for three HP 7500s for its customer CODESA, a construction company in Querétaro working on a bridge construction project.

The project involved building a 700-m long vehicle bridge with a maximum height of 7-m and the excavation and removal of approximately 18,300 yd3 (14,000 m3) of basalt. The bridge is located in Querétaro on the road to Celaya, known to locals as Colonia Balvanera, hence the name Balvanera Bridge.

Even though the basalt was particularly hard, the jobsites close proximity to the city prevented the use of explosives. CODESA also needed to complete the job quickly so that the road could be opened up to traffic just as soon as possible. 

The first three hammers proved to be a great hit, so the company purchased another seven Indeco hammers, five HP 7500s and two HP 8000s. Having to work for 20 hours a day in extreme conditions, the Indeco hammers stood out in terms of performance, thanks also to the assistance and consultancy from Indeco North America, who managed to solve all the technical problems.
