It is announced that the new Vietnam street circuit in the capital city of Hanoi, will join the Formula One Grand Prix calendar in 2020. It is the fourth track in Asia to be added to the calendar following Singapore, China and Japan.
The Dynapac machines involved in the construction of the track are the large tracked asphalt paver SD2500CS, the compact asphalt paver F1200CS, the mobile feeder with swingapp MF2500CS, the pneumatic tyred roller CP275, the large planer PL2000, the small planer PL500, the asphalt roller CC1300 and the oscillating roller CO4200VI.
A professional race track requires a high level of evenness and asphalt mat quality. Special asphalt is used to ensure higher adhesion factor hence the use of coarse-grained gravel to increase traction, keeping the grip at turns.
Dynapac SD2500CS paver has a standard operating weight of 18,500kg with extension boxes of up to 9 metres. Dynapac pavers come with advanced functions to help the operators achieve desired result in complicated application situations.
Dynapac MF2500CS is a high performance conveying system with a feeding capacity of 4,000 tonnes/hour. In terms of productivity, the durable conveyor belt system can empty 35 seconds, significantly reducing truck cycle times and boosting overall productivity.
Combined with the Dynapac SD2500CS paver, the fit between both machines ensure no material spillage thus saving both time and money. The paver and feeder combination also ensures a smooth paving process with great paving results.
Dynapac is also utilizing its latest optimization tools to help in planning the paving process. The Pave Manager tool is a software used to assist in planning the job to achieve the highest level of optimization for the full paving cycle. The tool takes into consideration the different assets (asphalt plants, trucks, pavers, feeders and rollers) and simulate the paving process. While paving, the tool is used in real time to manage the full process giving a timely overview on the process. The Pave Manager tool can also produce the daily reports needed.
Covering a spectrum of the race track construction process, Dynapac road equipment’s high functionality and reliability has been widely appreciated. We look forward to this high specificity track project to commence and complete successfully, opening Hanoi to international recognition with this high profile motorsports.
