SUPER 2100-3i: ideal for use in tunnels
“On projects like this, each cog needs to mesh with the next. Precise planning, a competent team and powerful machines are essential”, says Christopher Gansloser, managing director of Kurt Gansloser GmbH. “Of course, the subject of emissions plays an important part on tunnel job sites, in particular.” This is why the civil engineering specialists put their faith in Vögele’s SUPER 2100-3i large paver. This Highway Class machine has a laydown rate of up to 1,100 t/h and with its modern drive concept, is perfect for projects involving tunnels. The engine is fitted with a multi-stage exhaust emissions after-treatment system including a diesel particulate filter, and thus meets the strict guidelines of European exhaust emissions standard stage V. Intelligent engine management and the so-called EcoPlus package furthermore reduce fuel consumption and emissions by up to another 25%.
The SUPER 2100-3i also scored as a result of its straightforward operation and clear controls. In spite of the cramped conditions and meagre tunnel lighting, drivers and operators had a good view of all the relevant areas of the machine and the job site. This is on the one hand due to the glare-free backlighting of the ErgoPlus 3 consoles; whilst on the other, LED lights in the machine’s hardtop, additional light balloons and LED spotlights in the screed operator’s consoles ensured comprehensive illumination of the entire area of operation.
