At present, the economic growth rate in China is extremely high. Enormous investments in new infrastructure, such as roads, tunnels, bridges and buildings, have led to a major boom in the construction and civil engineering sector.
As a result of this trend, concrete pumps have become a growing business segment for Volvo Penta's industrial engine operations in China. These products are used to pump ready-mixed concrete in connection with construction work and the largest models have the capacity to pump 85 cubic meters of concrete per hour through pipes up to 1,200 meters long. The difference in height can be as much as 250 meters.
