Volvo Paves The Way For Indonesia’s First Elevated Road
The Indonesian road construction company, PT Multi Karya Cemerlang, is using a P5320B ABG paver from Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) on the Jakarta Cikampek elevated toll road project in Indonesia.
Once completed, the 36.4-km toll road will be the only elevated one in Indonesia. Built on top of an existing toll road, the project aims to reduce traffic congestion and improve distribution of goods and services to and from Jakarta to the rest of the country.
On site since August, the P5320B ABG paves asphalt on top of the concrete foundation as part of the elevated toll road project. Working seven days a week for an average of eight hours daily, the paver lays up to 400 tons of asphalt daily and is expected to remain on site until December 2019. By then, the paver is expected to lay some 34,000 tons of asphalt.
The P5320B ABG is a tracked sensor paver with a paving width range of 2.5 m to 7 m and can deliver a paving output of 600 tons per hour. Powered by an 88 kW Volvo engine, the paver delivers high performance with minimal noise and low fuel consumption. The paver also features load-sensing hydraulics that perfectly matches hydraulic output to all components.
