Stone Crushing Plant for Royal Academy Project in Paro

The NRDCL and Royal Academy Project based at Pangbisa in Paro had partnered to work together in terms of meeting the supply of locally available raw materials like timber, sand and stone aggregates for the upcoming construction activities of the project.

As part of this partnership, NRDCL had arranged to set up a 30 TPH stone crushing plant by transferring its running plant from the far south east end of the country at Golantiin Jomotshangkhadungkhag. The dismal market and frequent problem in terms of effectively managing the plant led to underutilization of the plant and its shifting to Paro is not going to impact the requirement of stone chips for the locality in Jomotshangkhadungkhag.

With constant support and sharing of resources between NRDCL and the Project, the work could be expedited and the plant was successfully commissionedwithin two to three months. The Chief Executive Officer of NRDCL along with few officials from the Academy, NRDCL head office and Rinpung Region andvillageTshogpa gathered at the plant site on the morning of 9thJanuary 2015 to test run and inaugurate the plant formally. In order to resolve some unexpected teething problems, an experienced mechanic from the supplier of machine in Guwahati is at the site for more than a month and it is expected that the plant will function smoothly without any major problems. The quarry tied plant located at Phubana in IsunaGewogis expected to meet the requirement of the project for stone chips.

Similarly, NRDCL is equally committed in meeting the timely supply of sand and timbers for the project. In order to meet special sized and length timber requirements for the project, NRDCL and the Academy is geared to work together for introducing glulam (laminated) timber on a pilot basis for the project.
