Eurovia Specialist Treatment first in UK with new Spray Injection Patching Machine
Eurovia Specialist Treatment (EST) is the first business in the UK to trial a new combined frontal Spray Injection Patching unit with rear Surface Dressing patching capabilities within one machine.
In an innovative twist to traditional sprayjet patching, the ‘Greenswift’ Spray Injection Patching machine is currently being trialled within the UK; with EST being the first to test performance. The key difference from more traditional patching operations is that the process allows a pothole to be filled with a frontal injection patching system, then sealed with a surface dressing from the one unit.
As all of the operation takes place with the one machine, it can be controlled by the operator from the cab, making the process safer, and enabling a higher quality end product.
The trials have demonstrated some successes and key learning, with our teams providing regular feedback to Secmair, the vehicle’s manufacturer, illustrating the strength of our relationships with supply chain partners to innovate and develop our business.
Paul Goosey, EST’s Regional Director said: “I believe this trial demonstrates innovative thinking and tests new ways of working that delivers automated, high quality results for our clients, and creates a safer environment for our people.”
To date, Spray Injection Patching trials have taken place in Milton Keynes, Wiltshire and Essex.
