edotco introduces spun prestressed concrete tower

     DHAKA, Oct 6, 2021 (BSS) - Telecommunications infrastructure services 
company, edotco Bangladesh today installed its first "Spun Prestressed 
Concrete (SPC)" Tower which is an alternative to steel.

     This innovation designed in house by edotco engineers is a unique 
combination of steel and concrete materials installed at Manikganj Sadar 
upazila, said a press release.

     edotco said it is the first time this type of composite structure has 
been used to build telecommunications infrastructure in the nation. 

     This 33.3m height SPC Tower provides higher stability, ensures improved 
network connectivity and requires less production time. 

     The high tensile steel wires used inside the pole ensures proper 
firmness and increases the resistivity of the SPC pole, making it highly 
resistant to heavy rains, storms and other natural disasters while 
guaranteeing uninterrupted connectivity. 

     Ricky Steyn, Country Managing Director of edotco Bangladesh, said, 
edotco Bangladesh has played a pivotal role in developing a sustainable 
telecommunications ecosystem in the country. 

     Responding to the emerging needs for connectivity, he said "our talented 
pool of engineers design solutions that are eco-friendly, highly resistant 
and cost-efficient aimed towards achieving seamless network connectivity."

     He added "the SPC tower is another significant outcome of our nation-
building commitment to provide sustainable and shareable infrastructure 
across the nation." 

     Echoing Steyn's statements, Abdul Yazid Kassim, Director, edotco Group 
Engineering and Technology said, "edotco continues to champion the use of 
alternative materials towards designing sustainable infrastructure, reducing 
our dependence on steel and the impact on the environment. 

     "Bangladesh has been in the forefront of these innovations, and the 
deployment of this SPC Tower reinforces the Group's commitment to our green 
agenda, innovation and towards future proofing the telecommunications 
industry with next generation, sustainable technology," he said.
