Indonesian President Joko Widodo has committed to developing $414.6 billion worth of new public works projects, resulting in growing demand for equipment to support infrastructure projects. To highlight Volvo Construction Equipment’s strength in supporting infrastructure projects, the company showcased a tracker paver and soil compactor, during the Indonesian Asphalt Pavement and Concrete Association event (Asosiasi Aspalt dan Beton Indonesia/AABI) at Hotel Grand Sahid Jaya, Jakarta.

“Both the P6820C tracked paver and the SD110 soil compactor are designed to maximize operations and reduce fuel consumption, important considerations on infrastructure projects with tight budgets and deadlines,” said Lamber Gerrit, sales and marketing director, PT. Volvo Indonesia.

The new Volvo P6820C tracked paver offers paving widths of 2.5 m to 10 m and is powered by a 142 kW, Tier-3 compliant engine to offer an average paving output of 700 tons per hour. Equipped with a smart power mode, the P6820C paver offers up to 30% in fuel savings compared with its predecessor. Volvo Variomatic screeds provide customers with hydraulically-extending widths and the paver can also be configured with manual screeds.

The SD110 is equipped with a premium Volvo D5 engine that meets Tier 3/Stage IIIA requirements, delivering high torque at low rpm for superior performance. In conjunction with Volvo’s ECO mode, it delivers lower emissions and increased efficiency without compromising on power. There’s also a 20% reduction in fuel consumption compared with previous Volvo models in this category. For excellent gradeability, the Volvo traction system provides outstanding climbing and traction capabilities in difficult applications such as steep inclines or slippery surfaces, and the system prevents wheel or drum spin.

In early 2018, the P6820C proved its high-performance when it was used to widen the road access in North Jakarta.

“We needed to complete the road widening in one week, so we wanted the best and most reliable equipment available,” said Binsar Simanjuntak, equipment manager at PT Widya Sapta Contractor, who purchased the paver from Volvo CE dealer PT Indotruck Utama. “The P6820C has strong horsepower and is a high-tech automatic machine with precise sensors that was able to continuously pave while providing good compaction results.”

The General Work and Housing Ministry of Republic Indonesia organized the AABI event. Some 134 members and stakeholders from around Indonesia attended the event on September 20.

“AABI was a great opportunity for us to demonstrate our strength in supporting infrastructure projects, and to share our latest technologies with customers,” Gerrit said.
