Lintec plant paves the way for better runways at Cambodia airports

A Lintec CSD 2500B containerised asphalt plant has been used on airport projects in Cambodia, helping to produce a steady supply of hot mix asphalt for construction and maintenance work. Most recently, the plant completed a runway extension and rehabilitation project at Sihanouk International Airport, including the renovation of a 2.5 km existing runway and construction of an 800 m extension. Prior to this, it was employed on projects at Phnom Penh International Airport.

“With planes constantly taking off and landing, a key challenge on runway projects is only having a few hours each day when asphalt works can take place. This means the hot mix asphalt has to be produced efficiently and quickly, with limited room for error. The precision and reliability of the CSD 2500B make it a perfect choice, helping projects stay on schedule,” said Lee Yen Meng, CEO of Lintec & Linnhoff Asphalt Pte Ltd.

The Lintec CSD 2500B features a maximum production capacity of 160 t/h with a 2.5 t mixer. With its innovative double screen drum technology, there is no need for a hot elevator or vibrating screens in the Lintec design, resulting in easier maintenance, lower power consumption and better environmental performance. Its modular construction, meanwhile, makes for easy and quick installation which is a useful feature for customers, such as this Cambodian contractor that needs to move the plant from project to project.

The enclosed structure gives the plant a smart appearance, while its reduced noise and dust levels mean disruption to the local community is kept to a minimum. Each Lintec unit undergoes a rigorous testing routine prior to shipping, while a host of customisation options means users can specify a design that meets their exact needs.

Thanks to the efficient and productive performance of the Lintec CSD 2500B at Sihanouk International Airport, the site can now accommodate larger (Code E) aircraft, such as the Boeing 787 Dreamliner or the Airbus A350-1000. In 2019 the airport welcomed 1.6 million passengers and over 17,000 flights.
