“At Atlas Copco, the aim is always to introduce reforms which will reduce the cost to the customer and improve the environmental footprint that our products leave behind.

Atlas Copco portable generators are CPCB II approved equipment which ensure noise level average lesser than 75 decibels,” says Lall. Further, the modern aesthetically appealing gull wing design canopy ensures low noise pollution. ARAI approved equipment is required to ensure low emissions. Atlas Copco ensures this with its Stage II engine in its on-site portable generators. Additionally, in the hydraulic breakers segment, Atlas Copco strives to work on the weight-power ratio and continue to focus on products with lower weight on the excavator which gives higher blow energy.
