Leading recycling technology and high level of flexibility
With the RPP 4000 Plus, STRABAG has chosen a modern, powerful plant. One feature of recycling priority plants (RPP) is the integrated hot-gas generator technology. This leading recycling technology enables the production of fresh asphaltic mixtures with a content of 100 % recyclable asphalt – that is more than with any other recycling system on the market. In addition to this, low emissions values provide an effective contribution to more energy efficiency and a lower impact on the environment. For maximum utilisation of the large plant, STRABAG is planning to use the maximum possible recycling rates in Vinařice. The conditions for this are perfect, because in addition to the convenient location near the village, the owner has access to large amounts of reclaimed asphalt. The asphalt is supplied to construction sites of all sizes – by customers or by their own fleet, with a large variety of recipes.
Customised for optimum plant performance
Comprehensive customer support from the outset: During the quotation and planning phases, the new plant is tailored to the individual requests and requirements of the customer. Economic efficiency – for example by choosing the new 5-t mixer – but also the environmental aspect and the situation at the site played equally important roles during the concept phase. The modular system, which allows for subsequent expansions, provided maximum flexibility and short project times. It took just under 10 months from the start of assembly until the plant was fully commissioned in May 2022 – a record-time installation process, even before the agreed deadline, despite the lockdown and other coronavirus restrictions. This top result was also made possible by the Benninghoven modular system and the quality philosophy: A mistake made once will be strategically eliminated. “We are not satisfied with what we have. We strive for continuous improvement,” explains Steve Mac Nelly, Head of Development and Design Engineering at Benninghoven. STRABAG was able to benefit from this.
