World premieres and innovations from all product brands
The Wirtgen Group’s clear commitment to sustainability is also shown in the world premieres and innovations presented by its product brands.
For instance, the Mill Assist machine control system now also assures sustainable and efficient machine operation in the new generation of compact milling machines from Wirtgen. With the KMA 240i cold recycling mixing plant, it is now not only possible to produce high-quality mixes from recycled construction materials, but also cement-treated base layers.
That Vögele sees green as much more than the colour of the paintwork of its machines, is clearly demonstrated by the company’s new Dash 5 generation of road pavers. Also on show are the SUPER 1900-5(i) and SUPER 2100-5(i) Highway Class pavers and the latest generation of the AB 500 and AB 600 extending screeds.
In the future, electrically-powered HD CompactLine tandem rollers from Hamm can save the day whenever a contract demands zero-emission compaction. The e-tandem rollers are the ideal solution in all areas where compaction work must be particularly quiet. As, in many cases, low vibration levels are also specified, the compaction specialist is also presenting an e-combination roller with oscillation alongside e-vibration and e-oscillation rollers.
The drive system of the new MOBIREX MR 130 (i) PRO mobile impact crusher from Kleemann is also fully electric. Thanks to the option for connection to an external power supply, the plant enables materials processing with low energy consumption per tonne of the final product.
Among the highlights being shown by Benninghoven is the innovative REVOC system for the sustainable batch production of asphalt in mixing plants. The EVO JET multi-fuel burner can now also generate heat from regenerative fuels such as ‘Biomass to Liquid’ (BtL) and wood dust, both of which have a neutral carbon footprint. Benninghoven also offers electrically heated bitumen tanks for carbon neutral storage of bitumen.
The Wirtgen Group is also showing the iNova 2000 asphalt mixing plant from Ciber for the global market for the first time. Ciber is Latin America’s leading manufacturer of mixing plants for continuous asphalt production. For markets that use both continuous and batch processing, Ciber complements the market-specific asphalt mixing plant portfolio as the Wirtgen Group’ sixth product brand.
John Deere is coming to the event with a representative selection of construction equipment and corresponding technologies that are tailored to the needs of the European market and ideally complement the Wirtgen Group’s portfolio.
