Yakutia and Canada: New possibilities of cooperation

(Article from parliamentary gazette "Il Tumen" - http://news.iltumen.ru/topic.php?id=100216)

The Republic delegation, led by First Deputy Prime Minister of the Sakha Republic (Yakutia), A. Struchkov, arrived in Toronto to take part in the international Construct Canada 2011 conference and hold negotiations with several Canadian companies.

On November 28, the delegation visited the headquarters of Canadian company McAsphalt Industries Limited in the province of Ontario, which specializes in the production, application, research and development of innovative road construction and maintenance products.

The meeting was led by the McAsphalt Marketing Manager, Mike McLean, and the president of Cantat Associates, exclusive leader of McAsphalt products in Russia and the former Soviet Union Republics, Alexander Zevin.

In a presentation on road construction technologies, developed and employed by McAsphalt, Alexander Zevin presented technological solutions for road construction and repair.

The "Cold Mix Asphalt" technology is used for pothole repair in any time of year and under any weather conditions, which guarantees the high quality of repair works and prolonged life cycle of the pavement. This technology passed the engineering-technical expertise in 2005, with the participation of Canadian experts together with the Yakutia Public Institution on Roads Exploitation. The results of this expertise were followed by positive assessment of the feasibility of this technology's application in the republic.

A major advantage of the "Warm Mix Asphalt" technology, which was approved for utilization in road construction projects in the Sakha Republic (Yakutia), is the ability to extend the road construction season. When laying hot mix asphalt on a cold surface, the mix temperatures drop quickly, which prevents proper asphalt compaction based on the GOST standard requirements. Due to the poor compaction, potholes and cracks start to appear in the newly paved road immediately the following year. The "Warm Mix Asphalt" technology allows to extend the asphalt compaction interval and significantly improves the quality and life cycle of the pavement.

As part of the visit, the Sakha Republic (Yakutia) delegation visited the McAsphalt plant for production of emulsified bitumen products, as well as joint and crack sealants, used in a wide range of repairs of concrete and asphalt surfaces under cold weather conditions. The delegation expressed their intention to build a similar emulsion plant in the republic.

The sides emphasized the significance of the utilization of these technologies during road construction and maintenance works in the Sakha Republic (Yakutia) and expressed their intentions to continue their cooperation in this field.
