What our European customers say:
Poland - HMP LFG entered the speedway racing stadium
Speedway racing is very popular in Poland. The Polish league is one of the strongest in Europe, and the best speedway riders in the world are members of Polish speedway clubs. On average, about 8000 spectators visit such a speedway competition in Poland.
The stadium surface for this sport is made of a special mixture called slag. It must be perfectly prepared and well compacted with a roller to ensure the best results and the safety of the riders.
Our partner GEOLAB was contacted by the Speedway Quality Control staff to test our device for their purposes. After the tests, when they were satisfied with the results, they immediately bought their first HMP LFG device.
LATVIA - comparative measurements of leading laboratories
Organized by company Binders Ltd. the leading Latvian road construction laboratories met for comparative measurements on the motorway A3 near Straupe - including the competence center of the public road construction company "LVC Latvijas Valsts ceļi", which uses Static Plate Load Tester HMP PDG to maintain its quality standards.

LITHUANIA - Largest Lithuanian road maintenance company relies on HMP PDG!
Here Static Plate Load Tester from HMP are used for reliable assessment of the deformability and bearing capacity of soils. Our sales manager, Stefan Kanter, together with our Lithuanian distribution partner, carried out a briefing and training of the employees on site.
Kelių priežiūra is the largest Lithuanian road construction- and maintenance company. It works under the direct authority of the Ministry of Transport and Communications of the Republic of Lithuania.
The company maintains and manages more than 21,000 km of state significance roads (highways, national and district roads) and has over 1,800 specialized transport and technical facilities. The company′s headquarters with approximately 2,600 employees is located in Kaunas.
Building calls for testing! In Valletta, the capital of Malta, this is done with the HMP PDG Static Plate Load Tester. Thanks for the photo Keith!

NORWAY - Using HMP LFG to assess sustainable pavements built with use of local materials

The “Ferry-free coastal highway route E39” project entails the creation of several long tunnels along the southern Norwegian coast. The tunnelling operations will generate a tremendous quantity of blasted rocks. These could be used in the road unbound layers close to the place of production to provide a sustainable cost-benefit application.
Two different non-traditional additive types are examined to improve the properties of weak rocks: one is polymer-based, the other one is lignin-based. A current investigation is assessing the additives’ performances in a full-size field test situated close to Trondheim, Norway. The Light Weight Deflecttometer HMP LFG is being used to assess the development of dynamic modulus and deformation over time.
HMP PDGpro - quality assurance during construction of Copenhagen metro, DENMARK
The Static Plate Load Tester HMP PDGpro is currently being used in track construction in Copenhagen. The company "DMR Geotechnik" relies on precise testing technology from Magdeburg!
In the first three construction phases, among other things the airport and the city development area Ørestad on the island Amager were connected to the city centre of Copenhagen. By means of this city ring the accessibility of the city centre by public transport shall now be increased.
GREAT BRITAIN - Measurement of bearing capacity under the roadway by means of the HMP LFGpro
This really also surprised us! We received this picture from an end user in Great Britain.
In this case a hole was cut into the roadway, in order to measure the bearing capacity of the base layer below the already built-in asphalt pavement by means of the Light Weight Deflectometer HMP LFGpro.
Both hands free in SERBIA - with the HMP LFG!
You want to check the compression on many measuring points on after another? Then do it like one of our users in Serbia:
With the settlement measuring instrument on his wrist he has both hands free to do the measurement and then to go with his Light Weight Deflectometer to the next measurement point.
UKRAINIAN Railways trust on HMP!
Our Light Weight Deflectometer has been of fundamental importance for the trouble-free train operations in the host country of the European Championship 2012. The Ukrainian southern railway has planned the expansion of the transport corridor on time. For the first time a 13-ton virbation roller and a HMP LFGpro for internal quality assurance & fast review of achieved compaction were used. Several rail sections were reconstructed, straightened and newly filled. The result speaks for itself - the new Express-Railway sections were completed one month earlier than planned!
