One of the new rising companies which is taking important portions of market shares is Minh Duc Concrete & Construction which has just set up a modern factory capable of producing a wide range of prestressed hollow core slabs using extrusion technology.

Minh Duc has recently set up a brand new facility for the production of prestressed hollow core slabs and partition walls. The new production facility unit is located in the Hanoi city, a strategic location for the supply of the floor slab elements & partition walls to the whole region.

New State-of-the-Art Batching Plant

Minh Duc, after a careful and long procedure for partner choice, has selected MCT Italy as the perfect batching plant supplier. The fully customized mixing solution, together with the flexible layout able to supply concrete to several machines simultaneously, has been the winning card for the project.

The aggregates storage is composed of four bins of 20 cubic meters capacity each, while the planetary mixer 2250/1500 equipped with double gate can easily deliver concrete to the Nordimpianti Extruder Machine and to the carousel line for the light weight partition walls production.

The new plant, consisting of six 150 meters production beds, has been designed with a production capacity rate of 300,000 square meters per year of prestressed hollow core slabs for floors and non-load bearing partition walls. The Nordimpianti’s Evo Extruder complete with two forming inserts is capable to produce elements of 150, 200, 250 and 300 mm high.

Mr. Gabriele Falchetti, MCT Italy General Manager for Asia Market affirms: “I’m glad to say that MCT Italy, worldwide known for its smart and flexible solutions for mixing technology & concrete delivery system, is firmly increasing its reputation in the Vietnamese & South East Asia market. The impressive quality of a complete hot galvanized steel structure pairs with an intensive moisture and plasticity control (mandatory for Minh Duc dry concrete products) fully integrated into the in-house developed Compunet software, makes the plant a real state-of-the-art”.
