Britain's Best Bin Weigher Measures Up in Northern Ireland
Northern Ireland’s premier supplier of refuse vehicles, Manvik Plant & Hire Ltd., won the tender to provide 6 refuse vehicles to the Authority, two of which specified weighing equipment. Vehicle Weighing Solutions were selected as the preferred supplier.
Alan Haire, General Manager, Manvik said: “Armagh are using the weighing technology to analyse and monitor loads. VWS were selected because of their price competitiveness and the accuracy of the ENVIROWEIGH system.”
100% British designed and manufactured, ENVIROWEIGH provides an unrivalled level of weighing accuracy, to 0.5% or better, and can be used for pay-for-weight services. The vehicles were also equipped with VWS LOADWEIGH-CAN on-board weighing.
During the past two years VWS has supplied and installed its on-board weighing equipment to refuse vehicles across the local authority areas of Coleraine, Derry, Craigavon, Newry & Mourne, Ballymena, Carrickfergus and Omagh.
Julian Glasspole, Managing Director, VWS said: “This is a very exciting development for us as it’s the first time we have supplied our bin weighing technology to Northern Ireland. We look forward to continuing our excellent relationship with Manvik.”
The six vehicles, all Dennis Olympus with Terberg OmniDE bin lifts, have now been delivered to the Authority. To ensure a smooth hand-over VWS invited Manvik engineers over to its installation workshops in Chesterfield for full training. VWS is also providing a complete set of all spares to Manvik.
The UK market leader in on-board weighing, bin weighing and axle load protection, VWS recently announced its best month ever with a 35% increase in sales compared with last year.
VWS belongs to a family of complimentary British companies known collectively as AW. AW specialises in the design, manufacture, installation and servicing of load cells, weighing systems and traffic management systems.
