Sustainable road construction becomes tangible: Wirtgen Group at the “Bauma” trade fair: building.lv

The future of road construction: smart, safe, sustainable. This was the motto of the Wirtgen Group and the joint participation of John Deere at the “Bauma 2022” trade fair.

The presentation attracts the interest of the visitors

With more than 97 exhibitions, including 37 innovations, and special exhibitions dedicated to digital system concepts and sustainability, the group presented advanced solutions for road construction.

The power of innovation: electric cars and other product innovations

The sustainable development of the Wirtgen Group was the main theme of all trade fair stands. Between the Hamm tandem rollers with battery-electric motors, the Vögele mini-pavers with battery-electric motors and the all-electric Kleemann impact crusher, world premiere machines and innovations were thus in the spotlight. Two compact Wirtgen milling machines with comfort cab, a Vögele paver of the “Dash 5” generation and the Benninghoven REVOC system, a catalyst for asphalt mixing machines, also caused a stir.

Production systems with potential for ecological and economic savings

In addition to individual machines, the group also presented production systems that provide complex solutions for road construction. It is these solutions in general that have the greatest ecological and economic potential – solutions that cover everything from cold recycling and asphalt recycling to emission-free applications in cities and other problem areas, as well as large-scale remedial measures and small utilities jobs ladder. Users benefit not only from the coordinated machine portfolio of the Wirtgen Group, but also from the synergies created by the alliance with John Deere. This also applies to quarries and recycled materials processing, where John Deere wheel loaders together with Kleemann crushers and screeners form an integrated production system.

John Deere plans to start selling wheel loaders in Europe as well

Going forward, John Deere will offer two wheel loader models in selected European markets. At the beginning of the “Bauma” exhibition on October 24, the 744 P-Tier and 824 P-Tier models were presented in Germany and Great Britain. Both wheel loader models will be offered in the Wirtgen Group sales network.

Digitalisation as a driving force for more sustainable road construction

In the area of ​​technology, the Wirtgen Group presented the digital solutions of its product brands, which already today make it easier for users to operate machines and provide documentation in the workplace. These solutions include the “Performance Tracker” from Wirtgen, the new Wirtgen satellite guidance system “AutoTrac” for wheeled stabilizers and recyclers, the new digital compaction assistant “Smart Compact” from Hamm as well as documentation and optimization tools for Vögele processes “WITOS Paving Docu” and “Pavement Plus”.

Additionally, the Job Management Center provided information on how all jobs can be planned, tracked and analyzed in the future. The aim is to provide customers with real added value with the help of telematics solutions, enabling them to implement their projects even more efficiently.

Sustainability is a cornerstone of the company’s strategy

The Wirtgen Group is a pioneer in achieving greater mobility in road construction. Sustainability is a cornerstone of the group’s corporate strategy, clearly visible in the exhibition space dedicated to this theme. The innovations presented at the “Bauma” exhibition also highlighted efforts to increase the availability of product models with battery electric motors and to offer alternative propulsion technologies, from low-pollution technologies to carbon-free propulsion technologies.

Furthermore, the new and more advanced machine and technology solutions are also in line with the value proposition of the Wirtgen Group: close to the customers. With sustainable solutions, the group wants to support its customers not only in being able to quickly and cost-effectively meet the growing demand for infrastructure, but also in already meeting the growing requirements regarding environmental protection as well as nature and environmental conservation. humanity.

At the trade fair “Bauma 2022”, the Wirtgen Group presented its impressive innovation achievements, offering sustainable and therefore advanced solutions for road construction.

Hamm demonstrated the first fully battery-powered electric trainers. Sealing parameters and operation are identical to diesel engine models.

The MOBIREX MR 130(i) PRO impact crusher has a fully electric drive. The new Kleemann “PRO Line” aggregate is used as a primary and secondary crusher in quarries and recycling operations.

The Benninghoven REVOC system has been nominated for the “Bauma” innovation award 2022 in the category “Climate protection”. A catalytic converter for asphalt mixing plants increases the sustainability of asphalt production and protects plant sites from scrapping.

Among other things, Wirtgen presented compact milling machines with a comfort cab. These are the world’s first cold milling machines of this machine class to be offered with a cab.

World presentation: With the models SUPER 1900-5(i) and SUPER 2100-5(i), Vögele presented the first paver of the new “Dash 5” generation.

The John Deere 744 P-Tier and 824 P-Tier wheel loader models are now also available in Germany and the UK. They will be offered in the Wirtgen Group sales network.
