Ledcor buys new RAP-capable asphalt plant

Ledcor Group has acquired an asphalt plant that is able to incorporate recycled asphalt pavement (RAP) into the asphalt it produces.

The new plant will enable the company to provide “new high-grade hybrid asphalt solutions for clients while continuing its focus on environmental sustainability”,  Ledcor says.

The plant has a self-erecting silo, a separated control room, with technology and controls to improve the overall safety and quality of the asphalt product being placed on the road. In addition, the plant will be capable of producing warm mix asphalt technologies, including foamed asphalt.

Earlier this summer, Ledcor employed the newly acquired asphalt plant in the paving of the East Athabasca Highway in Alberta, Canada. The plant produced 3,500 tonnes of asphalt per day for the project, with 171,800 tonnes of asphalt produced in total for the 90km (55 mile) highway.

Ledcor has constructed and maintained thousands of miles of roadway across North America, ranging from access-roads to national highways in locations such as British Columbia, Alberta, Washington, and Texas.
