Case Studies

Project: Lord Buddha Statue

 

Details: The Lord Buddha statue is carved out of monolithic granite, and weighs a mammoth 300 tonne.

 

Challenge: The statue had sunk in the Hussainsagar Lake in Hyderabad. It had to be salvaged and resurrected.

 

Solution: The statue was salvaged and erected on its pedestal on Gibraltar Rock. Two lifting cables of 44 strands of 12.7 mm diameter were used in conjunction with a special cables and anchorage system. The hydraulic jacking system was mounted on top of towers and operated with a common power pack.
The entire operation was completed in 32 hours flat!
