Located some 200 km southeast of Milan, Guglielmo Marconi Airport is undergoing extensive rehabilitation work. The paving courses were milled off by the Wirtgen W 200. Easy to handle, the lightweight large milling machine is among the all-rounders in road rehabilitation and boasts an impressive performance and cost-efficiency.
One of the invaluable features of the Wirtgen W 200 is Wirtgen's proprietary PTS ("Parallel To Surface") system, which automatically aligns the machine parallel to the road surface in a dynamic process: The front and rear crawler units are lowered evenly and parallel to one another. In addition, the 4-fold full-floating axle, which forms part of the PTS system, quickly balances out any unevenness on the left or right side.
The Wirtgen mobile cold recycling mixing plant KMA 220 is easy to transport and can be quickly set up in the direct vicinity of the job site. That saves time and truck capacity, as well as being very environmentally friendly. It has its own diesel engine to guarantee independence of the public grid.
Ultra-modern, user-friendly technology is the basis for the innovative, environmentally friendly and economical asphalt pavers of the new "Dash 3" generation from Vögele. That also applies to the SUPER 1803-3 wheeled paver used in Bologna.
"The precision of the Vögele SUPER 1803-3 is impressive, even on tightly scheduled jobs, like paving asphalt at airports. It's a great help that the commands are simple, and that you can easily manage and check the numerous parameters involved. That allows me to guarantee the pavement quality," says Enrico Unida, Machine Operator at Bindi.
The Hamm rollers working as a team – and without disrupting normal flight operations. Even with a jumbo jet breathing down their necks, the DV 90 tandem roller and the GRW 18 rubber-wheeled roller continue to compact the fresh asphalt undeterred. The result is a perfect surface that meets the highest quality demands, such as those specifically called for at airports.
Elena Sturlini, Technical Manager at Bindi, believes that the Wirtgen Group machines and plants made a key contribution to the smooth progression of the rehabilitation work on a job site that posed numerous challenges: "There's no doubt that we were optimally equipped, thanks to the reliable operation of the Wirtgen Group technologies."
