The project entailing the construction of several sections of the Pan-Borneo Highway in Sabah and Sarawak, Malaysia, has employed asphalt plants from Lintec & Linnhoff. The Lintec CSD 3000 and CSD 2500B containerised asphalt plants together with the Linnhoff TSD 1500 MobileMix asphalt plants are providing high-quality hot mix asphalt for the project, and the clients are benefitting from lower operating and maintenance costs, along with first-class productivity to meet the substantial challenges of the construction.
The ultimate client on the project is the Government of Malaysia and over the four-year period, these CSD and TSD asphalt plants will be producing hot mix asphalt for both the binder course and wearing course for several sections of the Pan-Borneo Highway.
Lee Yen Meng, CEO of Lintec & Linnhoff Asphalt Pte Ltd, informed that the customers selected these CSD and TSD asphalt plants for their high portability, productivity, quick installation, good quality mix and reliability. "The Linnhoff TSD 1500 MobileMix offers an additional advantage. With their fast mobilisation and no need for heavy cranes for installation, they can be swiftly relocated to other sections of the highway as required. This is a huge advantage on a road construction project, where mobility and being close to the project site is key."
Maintenance and fuel consumption of these CSD and TSD asphalt plants are reduced thanks to their Screen Drum Technology. This technology combines the drying and screening of aggregates in one drum, eliminating the need for hot elevators and vibrating screens. Lintec and Linnhoff asphalt plants are fitted with a pollution control unit, where the exhaust gas is filtered and clean air is released into the atmosphere, while the remaining dust particles can be used as reclaimed filler.
