Research and development
As part of our commitment to constantly improve the performance and efficiency of our equipment, we maintain our own workshops where research and development teams focus on designing innovative cargo handling systems and putting them into action.
We developed our Active Weighing System for cargoes such as granite, which are traded using an agreed weight measurement which differs from the actual cargo weight. Granite can be weighed during loading without disrupting the flow of the operation. The data is transmitted from load cells to a quayside receiver where it is recorded and compared with the cargo manifest. The data can also be transmitted to an automatic data logger in a remote location.
