A team of Volvo Construction Equipment pavers, wheel loaders and excavators have successfully re-paved the landing strip at Warsaw Frederic Chopin Airport, Poland.

New top coat for Warsaw Frederic Chopin Airport runway

A team of Volvo Construction Equipment pavers, wheel loaders and excavators have successfully re-paved the landing strip at Warsaw Frederic Chopin Airport, Poland.

South West of Warsaw, 10 km outside the city centre, is Poland’s busiest international airport: Warsaw Frederic Chopin Airport. Approximately 100 scheduled flights land daily on its two intersecting runways.

When one airport landing strip and the crossing between the two landing strips needed to be repaved, Polish state-owned company Przedsiębiorstwo Państwowe ‘Porty Lotnicze’ chose Budimex S.A, the largest road contractor operating on the Polish market, for a multi million Euro contract.

Budimex knew it needed reliable machinery for such a prestigious job; so it chose Volvo Construction Equipment.
The right machines for the job

Budimex used two sorts of Volvo tracked asphalt pavers: the ABG8820B and ABG7820B – machines well-suited for medium and large scale projects with paving widths from 2.5 m up to 13 m. It also used a Volvo L110F wheel loader with 9.5 m³ bucket capacity, and Volvo EC210C, EC240C and EC290C crawler excavators, ranging from 23-30 tonnes.

Work was spread over 3 weekends, with a tightly regulated time schedule, necessary because the airport runway had to be closed while paving was in progress. Logistics were pre-assigned by the airport authorities and could not be changed, regardless of weather conditions or paving problems, leaving Budimex little room for mistakes.. CONT > >
