Construction Development Corporation Ltd (CDCL) has built its business around professionalism – specifically, providing high quality in a timely fashion. Helping the Bhutan business deliver on its promises are Apollo WM 6 HES mechanical paver finishers. The machines are responsible for CDCL’s construction of roads, bridges and other infrastructure projects.
The semi-governmental organisation has completed some large projects, including resurfacing 200 km between Phuentsholing and Punakha. It also handled a large resurfacing project in the city of Thimphu.
The projects required high quantities of mix, and occurred on hilly terrain and narrow roads. The pavers were up to the challenge, helping CDCL successfully complete the work.
“The finishing and quality of work is good,” the company said, adding that the pavers are highly reliable, too. It should come as no surprise then that CDCL again turned to Apollo when it was time for an asphalt-mixing plant. Officials visited the Ammann Apollo factory and nearby drum-mix sites. “Apollo was the superior brand as compared to other makes,” the company concluded.
CDCL purchased a DrumMix 60. It recently took delivery on the fully automated plant, and expectations are high. The plant purchase also included a bitumen barrel decanter unit, which will eliminate the need for manual feeding.
