Newly developed products and technologies, exciting applications on job sites around the globe, worldwide trade shows — discover what is currently happening in the world of the WIRTGEN GROUP.
Two machine concepts for every requirement
The SUPER 1000(i) Classic Line paver and the SUPER 1300-3(i) Premium Line paver are suitable for a similar range of applications, but the scope of their functions differs. A summary of differences and similarities follows.
MC 110 Z EVO Recycling of building rubble in Göppingen
A Mobicat jaw crusher processes concrete and building rubble in Stauferpark in Göppingen. Approx. 4,500 tons of material with a feed size of 0-500 mm are crushed to 0-60 mm and are used again on site as filling material.
New TBA 4000 in Moscow: the transportable asphalt mixing plant from BENNINGHOVEN supplies premium asphalt for both road rehabilitation projects on greater Moscow’s MKAD Outer Ring Road and for new roads.
In the north of Vietnam lie the emerging city of Lang Son, located on the border with China, and National Route 1A, the heavily congested motorway to the capital, Hanoi: a KLEEMANN plant combination was brought in to eliminate this bottleneck.
When paired with the AB 220 TV Extending Screed, it can take on a remarkably wide range of pave widths from 0.5 to 3.5 m and even pave entire roads. These features make the SUPER 800i ideal for achieving a high level of machine utilization.
WIRTGEN GROUP provides Asfaltbolaget with a complete crushing and screening plant train from KLEEMANN
Asfaltbolaget, with its head office in Karlskrona, is a Swedish asphalt, road and landscape construction company. After all of their positive experience with WIRTGEN GROUP, it stood to reason to include crushing and screening plants from KLEEMANN in their short-list.
A SUPER 1303-3i repaved the surface course on a 3.1 m-wide tree-lined route at a thickness of 3 cm. The new pavement of sand-coloured asphalt blends harmoniously into the landscape. The VÖGELE wheeled paver in the Compact Class paved the coloured asphalt with a crown of +2.5%.
Millimeter accuracy is paramount on a track where every thousandth of a second counts, which is why, when it was time to rehabilitate the pavement, the client took the opportunity to re-profile the track, too.
Expansion of the Berlin ring road: when widening the trans-European motorway, the team frequently had to move between many small job site sections. AutoSet Plus, the automatic functions of the SUPER pavers, provided invaluable support for the paving team.
Swiss company Recytec continues investing in Kleemann plants
Recytec from Switzerland specialises in the processing of waste materials and materials in the recyclable mineral chain. Recytec has now extended its vehicle fleet and is participating in work on the tunnel construction project on the A1.
Technologies from VÖGELE deliver perfect evenness: when resurfacing the A36 motorway near Dijon, a new SUPER 1900-3i paver equipped with an SB 250 TV Fixed-Width Screed and supported by an MT 3000-2i Standard PowerFeeder produced high quality results across a pave width of 7.5 m.
During a construction job in South Africa, it was scientifically proven by the University of Twente that the MT 3000-2 Offset PowerFeeder improves paving quality – among other things, using RoadScan, the innovative temperature measurement system from VÖGELE.
Because of the dry desert winds, the work can only be carried out at night – and only for three to four months in the summer: the largest WIRTGEN slipform paver, the SP 1600, and the flexible SP 500 bring all their skills into play when paving concrete at the New Ulaanbaatar International Airport.
In 2001, conventional “drilling and blasting” was regarded as the most important extraction method in the West African country. Today, however, bauxite mining is carried out exclusively using Wirtgen’s surface miners, which are more cost-effective, safer, and more environmentally friendly.
Autostrada A1 – Europe's largest construction project
To build the A1 motorway in Poland as efficiently as possible, machines from the Wirtgen Group were almost the only equipment used during paving and compaction, including several HAMM compactors and tandem rollers.
