edotco Bangladesh on Wednesday installed its first ‘Spun Prestressed Concrete (SPC)’ Tower which is an alternative to steel in Manikganj Sadar.

The latest innovation designed in house by edotco engineers is a unique combination of steel and concrete materials and is the first time a composite structure is used to build telecommunications infrastructure in the nation, said a press release.

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, our talented pool of engineers’ design solutions that are eco-friendly, highly resistant and cost-efficient aimed towards achieving seamless network connectivity.”
