Volvo CE’s dealer for the region, Xi'an Tongguan Construction Machinery Co. Ltd. (XATG), provides a service plan for all Volvo machines onsite, and has a representative from the dealership working with the construction team at all times to ensure the machines’ productivity and efficiency.
Two Volvo EC210B crawler excavators are also being used to deliver materials to the site and are heavily relied upon for the transportation of supplies to and from the team’s location. About 120 employees work at the nomadic construction site, moving up and down the desert highway. The working conditions can be particularly problematic, giving rise to a number of challenges.
“The wind and dust reduce our visibility, which is hazardous because this job is all about creating a smooth and straight surface,” says Feiyang. “So it’s a good thing that the Volvo P8820 machines offer our operators an all-around view and provide a direct line of sight into the hopper.”
The machine’s ergonomically designed environment, the auger channel and work area provide the best conditions for achieving high-quality paving. The sitting position can be adjusted, as can the control panel, and the central control panel, featuring the latest Electronic Pavers Management II system (EPM II), can be swiveled, tilted and extended – all for the operator’s comfort.
Once the road project is complete, travelers and commuters will be able to just sit back, and enjoy the smooth ride.
