Tracked Paver Shows The Way
The region of Antalya is being given a fresh look in time for Expo Botanik 2016. Everything is being made brighter and more beautiful, newer and more luxurious – especially hotels and roads.
This includes the Regnum Carya Golf & Spa Resort, a five-star oasis right on the seafront which was officially opened last year.
The 500 m approach road to the hotel comprises a 15 cm crushed-stone base and a 10 cm asphalt base. The asphalt surfacing was paved a short time later.
The company Antmos Asfalt was responsible for the works. The bulk of the company’s contracts are for access roads, connecting roads and highways with varying requirements – encompassing everything from pure pavement rehabilitation jobs to the construction of new roads.
The variation in projects meant that for economical and efficiency reasons, the equipment had to be adaptable to the varying needs of the various jobs. The company has invested in three Vögele pavers as being able to meet these requirements.
Consistent Paving Quality
For the Regnum Carya Golf & Spa Resort project, the Antmos Asfalt paving crew started by laying a 15 cm crushed-stone base followed by a 10 cm asphalt base.
The paver was equipped with a Vogele AB 600 TV extending screed equipped with tamper and vibrators.
This screed has a basic width of 3 m but extends hydraulically up to 6 m. This was useful on this project as the total pave width ranged between 10 and 12 m, the paver laid two strips of 4.5 to 6 m each. As a result, the machine had to be repositioned several times.
