Modern canalisation construction technology from Ammann
11. January 2012


A new local network for the municipality of Gebsattel is under construction in the county of Ansbach (Germany). Proper compaction is an important component of any civil engineering project. That is why Ammann machines are found on every construction site.


Trench excavation for the new canalisation system will amount to around 9500 cubic metres. The Ammann machines at work on the site offer the user a number of unique features with real advantages. The heavy vibratory plate AVH 100-20 is equipped with three-shaft technology for excellent running properties and outstanding compaction results, especially on very cohesive substrates.


Modern compaction technology guarantees measurable additional benefits

A further plus factor the vibratory plate has to offer is the ACEeco compaction system derived from the Ammann Compaction Expert "ACE", a tried and tested system for comprehensive compaction control. ACEeco uses an easily readable LED scale to indicate compaction progress and the maximum compaction level achievable with the machine. An innovative safety feature in the form of a dead man's handle with grip sensors is now available as an optional extra for every heavy vibratory plate from Ammann. This system provides additional safety not only during trench compaction.
