H 13i VIO compactors add value
In northern Michigan, a HAMM H 13i VIO soil compactor working in oscillation mode was paired with a WIRTGEN WR 240i cold recycler to rebuild seven miles of the State Road M-72, crossing the lower Michigan peninsula.
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.
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.
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.
Swiss company Recytec continues investing in Kleemann plants
Recytec from Switzerland specializes 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.
RoadScan, the temperature-measurement system by VÖGELE, proves its credentials during roadworks on Route 220 in Greensboro, North Carolina – teamed up with an MT 3000-2i Offset PowerFeeder and a SUPER 2000-3i paver.
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 freeway 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.
Contractors and government road agencies in North America have been using the VÖGELE SUPER 1800-3i SprayJet paver – and its predecessor, the SUPER 1800 SF – to place ultrathin bonded overlays like NovaChip for years. But increasingly, VÖGELE SprayJet technology is used to place standard hot mix asphalt overlays as well as ultrathin bonded overlays.
