Background information on asphalt paving at Jade-Weser Airport
Asphalt paving without joints and with crown
The asphalt runway at Jade-Weser Airport consists of two asphalt base courses and one surface course. The base courses were paved by a SUPER 1900-3i. This tracked paver was equipped with WITOS Paving Plus.
When the final surface course was paved, the primary paver was supported by a SUPER 1600-3i and a SUPER 1800-3i, with these pavers working hot to hot with an overlap of some 20 cm – so without joints.
The paving strips were selected so as not to create a centre joint: the SUPER 1900-3i worked a width of 7.5 m in the centre of the runway and paved a crown. Beside it, the two other VÖGELE pavers paved two strips with a transverse slope, creating a width of 15 m. The primary paver finally paved the outer strips. The overall width is 30 m.
Background information about WITOS Paving Plus and the five modules
Five modules – the right one for everyone involved in the process
WITOS Paving Plus consists of five networked complementary modules. There is one for each of the different people involved in the process, from the mixing plant supervisor to the truck driver to the site manager. The five modules are:
WITOS Paving Control
Planning and control module with wizard function for convenient planning and monitoring of the current construction project
WITOS Paving Materials
Mixing plant module for just-in-time supply of the job site by means of dynamically-cycled delivery
WITOS Paving Transport
Transport module for mix trucks; updates the ETA displayed on the basis of current position
WITOS Paving JobSite
Job site module for efficient process management during the construction process
WITOS Paving Analysis
Analysis module for documenting and evaluating construction projects
Equipped with the new system, the paving team got to work – supported for the first few metres by Jürgen Brenzinger, an experienced application expert from VÖGELE, who was on hand to give advice and support.
Background information on WITOS Paving Plus in general
Increased quality and efficiency for asphalt job sites: WITOS Paving Plus from VÖGELE
WITOS Paving Plus is a networked system solution for process optimization and documentation which consists of five complementary modules for the various people involved in the process - from the mixing plant supervisor to the truck driver to the site manager. The data from the VÖGELE solution is extremely accurate, as WITOS Paving has direct access to the machine data of SUPER pavers.
WITOS Paving Plus enables contractors to analyse and optimize their processes even retrospectively - and thus learn for the future from every construction project. In addition, the VÖGELE solution satisfies digitalization and documentation requirements for job sites - such as those increasingly being placed on contractors by authorities supervising road construction in more and more markets.
In addition to the high-end version WITOS Paving Plus, VÖGELE supplies a less complex basic version in WITOS Paving Docu.
