Grease Is The Word! Powelectrics Connected Sensor Solution Helps Recycle Waste Oil and Avoid Overspills.
Powelectrics have delivered an Industry 4.0 bulk waste collection solution for a leading provider of hazardous waste oil services. Our customer operates a UK wide network of waste transfer stations, depots and processing plants. They collect and process millions of litres of waste oil from garages and workshops to create processed fuel oil, which is an environmentally compliant alternative to virgin fuel. Powelectrics IoT technology has helped our customer to operate more efficiently in a low-margin sector and improved safety by avoiding overspills of hazardous waste.
Powelectrics are working with a European market leader in livestock nutrition. We provided a ‘connected sensor’ solution to this farm after they suffered a bad overspill of whey, which wasted thousands of tonnes of food and resulted in a smelly and expensive clean-up. Our Industry 4.0 solution is installed at many sites, meaning farmers can rest assured that tanks will not overfill. Neither will they run out, compromising the health of their animals.
Powelectrics Demonstrate Their Expertise, Delivering Another Complex Radio Scheme for the Water Industry
Powelectrics have just commissioned a large industrial IoT remote control scheme for a major utilities company. The scheme was installed over an area of 30 square miles, in which a water treatment works (WTW) is fed by multiple boreholes.
Dave Oakes, Powelectrics MD, has spent his entire working life working with remote monitoring and sensing solutions. As Powelectrics move forward with the development of our next generation ‘connected sensor solutions’, we couldn’t help indulge in a little nostalgia!
A Powelectrics connected sensor solution is preventing fuel theft from petrol forecourts. Our customer’s forecourts are not open 24 hours a day and unfortunately, large quantities of fuel had been syphoned from their underground storage tanks at night, and in some instances, even in broad daylight when the stations were open!!
Dave Oakes has now been in post as Powelectrics MD for six months. It has been phase of rapid change, so we asked him how things were going. Here you can read his views on how our 'connected sensor' community is developing, the projects we have been delivering and how you can get involved.
