Danzer weighs in with modular buildings for Avery Railweight
Danzer Ltd is working with Avery Railweight to install anti-vandal modular buildings at key freight weighing points around the UK.
The buildings will be used to securely house the instrumentation equipment which measures the train weight and other related information. This information is then passed back to a management office for data records and analysis. In the UK the buildings will be installed trackside, at power stations, steel works and freight shunting yards.
Commenting on the selection of Danzer’s anti-vandal product Avery Railweight’s Operations Manager Mike Davies said: “We specified the anti-vandal product because it is compact and secure and also because they are very robust, which is essential as they will be trackside.
Danzer was also able to be flexible with the variety of sizes they could provide and modified and adapted a number of units to meet our exact requirements. We have installed two so far and there will be at least a further six operational later in the year.”
Avery Railweight weighs freight trains and the loads that they carry such as coal, minerals, molten steel, sugar, oil and waste. The systems are installed in the UK and around the world in countries including: Australia, Brazil, USA, Canada, South Africa, Europe, Eastern Europe and Russia.
