Telecommunications infrastructure services  company, edotco Bangladesh on Wednesday 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.
