Finding the balance between productivity and fuel consumption

Finding the balance between productivity and fuel consumption
Hyster Europe used data from telematics to create an analysis which offers insight into ways to reduce the cost per tonne moved. The overall conclusion is that productivity has a greater impact on Total Cost of Operation (TCO) compared to minimising fuel consumption. Whilst Hyster Container Handlers offer one of the lowest fuel consumption rates, this has been achieved without compromising productivity.

Fan trays help keep North Sea oil platform safe

Fan trays help keep North Sea oil platform safe
Fire and gas detection systems are vital to give advanced warning of life safety and facility protection threats in hazardous areas. Oil rigs in the North Sea are located in some of the most inhospitable environmental conditions to be found, adding to the issues faced by operators in ensuring 24/7/365 operation. Verotec has recently supplied a large number of custom 19” fan trays  to Traycar Systems, who will be retrofitting them to legacy Ferranti control cabinets that date back to 1983 when the rig was first commissioned.
