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

Echoing his statements, Abdul Yazid Kassim, Director, edotco Group Engineering & Technology said, “edotco continues to champion the use of alternative materials towards designing sustainable infrastructure, reducing our dependency 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”.
