DSD Construction continues to invest in the latest high efficiency and environmentally friendly construction equipment through the procurement of the latest in paving technology – the Volvo P8820D paver.
This paver includes 3120mm long tracks to ensure stability and smoothness of the paving process, has a wider paving width of 13 metres and a paving thickness of up to 300mm – meaning fewer passes and shorter construction time. The large hopper capacity of 14.7 Te and a large conveyor tunnel mean that the paver can lay up to 1,100Te per hour.
The engine adaptive ECO mode reduces fuel consumption by matching engine output to site requirements which also reduces noise levels to the operators and local community.
The flexible configuration of the paver means that, in addition to asphalt paving, the highest levels of pre compaction behind the screed can be achieved for ballast paving and laying of cement treated base and roller compacted materials.
Use of the 9m wide paver with thicker material laying capacity means that our highway construction projects have fewer passes and joins in the carriageways – reducing construction time and road user disruption whilst increasing the quality of the road surface. Shorter construction schedules also increase worker safety by reducing time at risk and significantly reduce the carbon footprint of the project through reduced fuel consumption.
