Recycling in East Africa:
The BOMAG MPH 125 re-builds roads in Rwanda

A BOMAG GmbH recycler has been in use in Rwanda since December 2013. The construction company, Horizon Construction Ltd, (part of the Horizon Group with its head office in Kigali), bought the MPH 125 type machine in November 2013 which is the first recycler on the Rwandan market. Attending the presentation and first demonstration project during handover of the machine were BOMAG and Horizon representatives, the Rwandan Minister for Transport and National Defence, and national and international members of the press.

"This machine will cut road construction project costs in Rwanda by 30%; that's an enormous saving, using an highly environmentally-friendly method," reports the Rwandan Minister of Transport, Dr. Alexis Nzahabwanimana. "The East African Republic of Rwanda has been pursuing a strategic development programme for years and includes measures specifically to encourage economic growth, particularly by improving infrastructure. With the aid of the MPH 125, poor roads can be reconstructed by recycling and re-using the existing road material," explains the Minister. The new recycler will help to improve the quality of the road network in Rwanda.

"Our aim is still to introduce the latest technologies to Rwanda; this will enable our clients to deliver the best results and at the same time work efficiently, whilst at the same time protecting the environment. The new MPH 125 will allow us to meet all of these criteria," says Eugene M. Haguma, Managing Director of Horizon Group Limited, explaining the company’s decision to purchase the machine.

Maurice Nyaruhiria, Managing Director of the Horizon Construction Ltd, explained to the members of the media present that the new recycler would not only reduce the costs involved in rehabilitating the roads, but would also open up new opportunities for the Rwandan market particularly in terms of the improvement of the road network. According to Nyaruhiria, the Horizon Group is already planning to purchase another recycler/stabilizer in due course.

At work in East Arica: the Horizon Group’s new BOMAG MPH 125 recycler is the first machine of its type on Rwandan soil.
