Getting Clean Is A Dirty Business! A Powelectrics ‘Connected Sensor’ Solution is Helping Manage Hazardous Waste at a Hygiene Products Manufacturing Plant.
Powelectrics have delivered a number of projects for a fast-growing hazardous waste business. Our customer uses remote tank level monitoring to drive down costs via cost-effective collection scheduling. They also win business by assuring customers that they will not overfill, with all the messy and expensive consequences that would result from that.
Powelectrics are delighted to announce a third great quarter for 2018 and as a huge thank you to our excellent team, the company have been out to celebrate!
Powelectrics connected sensor technology is being used in a wide range of environmental applications, from waste oil collection and energy metering to flood monitoring. One area of growing interest is leachate management on landfill sites. This project enables leachate liners to be emptied automatically and landfill management can respond immediately if the pump appears to have failed, avoiding the environmental consequences of an overspill.
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.
