April 12th, 2016: it is the official opening of an XPRESS 2500 jobsite in Kazakhstan, at the presence of local authorities, of the contractor and the workers.
It has definitely been a long journey for the XPRESS, having as strongpoint the capability of being completely and easily transported on wheels within road transit dimensions (exception made for main trailer). If you look at the map nearly 8000 km have been done to reach the jobsite. It has been quite an adventure, crossing 5 nations, road shipment, and also via ferry from Lubeck to St. Petersburg, then on the road again via Moscow, down to Almay. Nearly 50 days to get to destination!
Mobility has been one of the reasons that brought a major company in Kazakhstan to buy this type of asphalt plant, but not the only one!
XPRESS is a mobile plant with a high production rate (up to 200 t/h) and having the premium features of a stationary plant, like for instance the possibility of direct discharge onto trucks and of recycling up to 40%. Furthermore, it has a plus : the quick erection time.
Technology, mobility, production rate, quality of final product, quick erection time, flexibility : to cut it short….it is all about profitability for the contractor always bearing in mind the quality of the job done.
All these features made XPRESS win the deal! Our customer had been in the asphalt plant business over the last 12 years and has a yearly production of 800,000 ton of asphalt. It is the first MARINI asphalt plant in its fleet.
To start with, XPRESS is meant to work for projects in the city of Almaty.
