Roreto di Cherasco site
The new production site, destined to become the operative HQ of the company, is located in a highly strategic zone in the area of Cherasco (CN), and is specifically in Roreto at the intersection between the A-6 Turin-Savona and the A33 Asti-Cuneo motorways.
In 2012 on this site a new plant for asphalt conglomerate production was installed and started.
This Marini (Fayat group) plant is a Top Tower 3000 model, equipped with the best in technological solutions available on the market. With a production of 200 ton/h, it can produce any asphalt mix with hot or cold technology, with the possibility of recycling milling waste.
Furthermore, SAM SpA is the first company on the Italian market to produce and market, with a licence LEA-CO France, the warm asphalt mixture thanks to the technology EBE (enrobage à basse énergie). This is an innovative system for the production of asphalt conglomerates at low temperatures (90 – 95°C) with the introduction of damp sand and foaming, which guarantees high performance products that are at the same time avant-garde with respect to safeguarding the environment, saving more than 40% of thermal energy compared to traditional processing.
Lastly, using albino bitumen, channelled into a designated line, the plant can produce transparent and coloured conglomerates to satisfy any design requirement.
