How is Volvo CE adopting circular economy principles to innovate equipment lifecycle management in the changing construction and mining landscape?

In response to the dynamic construction and mining landscape, Volvo CE is integrating circular economy principles to transform equipment lifecycle management in construction and mining. Prioritising sustainability, the company emphasises design innovation, material recycling, and remanufacturing for durable and recyclable products. This focus ensures extended equipment lifecycles. Volvo CE has a longstanding practice of providing remanufactured components like engines and pumps, with plans to expand this product range. Additionally, the refurbishment of old machines extends their second life. This commitment enhances operational efficiency and contributes significantly to a more sustainable and responsible industry future.

Could you outline the localisation strategies under the “Make in India” initiative and their effect on increasing access to advanced equipment in India?

Aligned with “Make in India,” Volvo CE implements robust localisation strategies, increasing local content in manufacturing for advanced equipment accessibility. This enhances our commitment to the local economy, streamlining the supply chain for cost-effectiveness. Localised production enables swift responses to market demands, ensuring timely and tailored advanced equipment provision. Volvo CE’s strategies contribute to the growth of India’s construction and mining sectors, fostering technological advancements and supporting broader economic objectives.

Considering the need for skilled operators, does Volvo CE engage in skill development programs or training initiatives to bridge the gap and optimise the utilisation of advanced equipment in the Indian market?

We have been actively investing in training and educational programs to address skills shortages. This involves collaborations with schools and colleges to develop innovative training initiatives tailored to construction equipment operators and technicians. We have also launched the ‘An Operator on Wheels’ training program, where a simulator is fitted in a truck to train the operators. This enables us to train the operators and equip them with the skills to use our machines most efficiently and deliver value. We are working with the government to make certification mandatory for machine operators. Like a truck driver with a driving license, we are pushing for machine operators to have an HD license qualifying the operator to operate the machine. We also closely work with the Infrastructure Equipment Skill Council (IESC) and conduct training programs at our manufacturing facility and customer sites.
