Bomag Paves the Way

O’Rourke take delivery of third paver

O’Rourke Contracting PLC, the South London based road surfacing, civil engineering and maintenance services provider, took delivery of their third BOMAG BF600 P paver at the end of August.

O’Rourke surfacing specialises in airport resurfacing and their first BF600 completed a large project at Biggin Hill and the machine delivered earlier is currently working at Heathrow Airport on Terminal 2 improvements.

The BF600 P has an operating weight of 17.6 tonnes and is powered by a 120 kW (163 HP) water cooled Deutz engine. The machine features ECOMODE machine management that plays an active role in reducing fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions.

The HSE screed has a retracted width of 2.55 metres and a maximum working width of 6.5 metres. The Bomag designed and manufactured HSE screed produces excellent pre-compaction of up to 93% and the 25 kW (continuous output) heating generator cuts heat-up time to 25-30 minutes, even in cold weather.

Safety and productivity is enhanced by excellent all round visibility and intuitive controls. The complete operator platform can be moved laterally, in both directions, up to an overhang of 600 mm.

Robert Weeden, O’Rourke Contracting’s Operations Manager,  Robert Weeden, O’Rourke Contracting’s Operations Manager, (pictured) commented at the handover, “We’ve over 3 years’ experience of the Bomag BF 600 and we’ve found the machine to be ideal for medium sized jobs. The paver gives a good finish to the mat, which is important in our line of work, and the controls and good visibility are popular with our operators. The new machine will be going straight to work on a resurfacing job.”
