Setting a new benchmark in Global Engineering, Navayuga Engineering Company Ltd has achieved an unprecedented world record at the Polavaram dam project in Andhra Pradesh.
By pouring 32,315.5 cubic metres of concrete at the dam site in 24 hours, the company has got its name into the much-coveted Guinness book of world records. The personnel began to pour the concrete at 8 am on Sunday and finished the record-breaking feat at 8 am on Monday in the presence of officials from Guinness Book.
Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister, Nara Chandrababu Naidu, who marked his presence at Polavaram during the record, tweeted, “The lifeline of Andhra Pradesh, Polavaram project has entered the Guinness World Records today for pouring 32,100 cubic meters of concrete non-stop in 24 hours.

“It is an extremely proud moment for Navayuga to be a part of such an iconic and landmark project in terms of its scale, expanse and impact on livelihood,” Mr Chinta was quoted as saying. He also informed that his company has broken a record that was previously held by a Dubai-based company, which had poured 21,500 cubic metres of concrete in a day.
