FAMCO is setting new industry standards relating to safety, health and the environment, with the delivery of the first Volvo Construction Equipment C-Series pavers equipped with a fume extraction system and incorporated with the enhanced ergonomics and increased fuel efficiency feature.
Specialist asphalt contractor Al-Futtaim Colas LLC has taken delivery of the Volvo C-Series Pavers following a review of their procurement specifications to incorporate the fume extraction system, as part of its company commitments to improving safety, health and the environment.
With its tier 3-certified engine and Smart Power Mode; the Volvo C-Series paver automatically reduces engine speed to 1600 rpm. This results in substantially lower noise and up to 30 per cent reduced fuel consumption. The fume extraction system feature removes harmful fumes from the working environment at 83 per cent efficiency, and its modular design means it can be retrofitted to machines in the field.
Vladimir Knezevic, Managing Director, FAMCO UAE, commented: “We are delighted to introduce another great innovation from Volvo to the UAE market; the newly supplied fume extraction system which contributes to a healthier working environment. Combined with the legacy Volvo engines, the benefits of the new system are multiplied we all strive towards a safer, greener environment.”
