Hybrid Tandem Roller

The A46 Upgrade & Anstey Lane Widening contract are currently using a Bomag BW 174 AP hybrid tandem roller.

This tandem roller combines an innovative hydraulic accumulator with a diesel engine to create a highly efficient drive unit.

The diesel engine covers the base load and the hydraulic hybrid accumulators the peak load with the result that fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are reduced by up to 20%.

This has a positive effect on both operating costs and the environment.
