Somerford Equipment, the UK’s leading manufacturer of road marking and road surfacing vehicles and equipment, has supplied Iraq with two bespoke road marking vehicles. Developed in collaboration with the Iraq Government’s UK-based agent, the Somerford SEV600 MultiMark vehicles are self-supporting and fully equipped for the application of pressurised thermoplastic road marking materials formulated to withstand the country’s high temperatures.
According to Somerford Equipment: “This important contract consolidates our position as one of the leading global providers of specialised road marking and surfacing solutions designed to meet the individual requirements of clients operating around the world.”
Built on a Volvo chassis, each single sided road marking vehicle incorporates all equipment required for thermoplastic application eliminating the need for separate support teams and vehicles. They include the efficient, self-feeding Solo sprayplastic applicator which allows single or multiple line application at 5-16kph in widths of 5-50cm. Pattern generation is fully computer controlled and machine operation is monitored from an onboard operator station to ensure that markings are consistently applied to the highest quality standards.
The contract was fulfilled in short timescales with the provision of a complete customer support package including training, operator manuals, maintenance and ongoing technical backup.
