Once a Streumaster tandem-axle trailer, towed by a John Deere tractor, had precisely pre-spread the binding agent, the Wirtgen WR 200 used its milling and mixing rotor to mix it homogeneously with the soil. The work was initially performed by three Wirtgen soil stabilizers, which were later joined by two WR 240 machines when additional units were requested for the project.
Teamwork increases quality: the entire fleet of 12 SUPER pavers is working "hot on hot". This means the seams are significantly better protected against water penetration and can withstand stresses for longer.
A team with a high compacting power: Hamm rollers tackle the toughest jobs, whether they are used for earthworks or – as in the photo – for compacting the water-bound base/cement treated base.
The taxiways in the apron area are being paved in concrete. Three Wirtgen slipform pavers ensure that the surfaces can handle the high concentrated loads from waiting aircraft.
