Scales and Weighing Equipment for Power Generation

Power and utility companies face challenging times ahead.  Increasing demand, ageing infrastructure and more regulation mean that current operations must be as efficient as possible. Weighing scales and systems from Avery Weigh-Tronix can help monitor incoming raw materials and measure outgoing waste in order to optimise operations.


Weighing equipment and solutions from Avery Weigh-Tronix can help to monitor incoming raw materials and outgoing by-products, while also managing traffic into and out of a site, providing your business with valuable data that can help to make your site safer and more efficient.

As well as using weighing equipment to monitor production and incoming/outgoing loads, coal-fired power stations monitor by-products such as waste and coal combustion products (CCPs). CCPs can play an important role in concrete production which is expected to grow as sustainable construction becomes more prominent.

With millions of tonnes of coal imported into the UK annually, weighbridge and train weighing solutions from Avery Weigh-Tronix can be used to help power stations to manage incoming loads from ports, provide relevant data and ensure that vehicles and rail wagons are loaded safely and to optimum levels.

Our vehicle scales and weighbridges are designed to be tough enough for the harsh conditions found in the industry. Avery Weigh-Tronix’s train scales allow weighing in motion, ensuring your operation records weight data and keeps on moving.

Renewables / Biomass
Renewables / Biomass

Biomass is classed as fuel derived from organic materials such as wood, agricultural crops and waste materials including food and manure. In biomass power plants, waste streams are burned to produce steam that runs a turbine to make electricity, or provide heat to industries and homes.

As with any electrical generation process, Biomass facilities need a steady supply of fuel. In order to optimise processes and achieve more efficient energy production, inputs need to be closely monitored and controlled.

The composition of waste from different sources can vary significantly. Measuring inputs, tracking waste sources and keeping the burner supplied with a uniform volume of waste can help biomass plants to maximise the amount of energy extracted from each tonne of waste. Robust and reliable weighbridges or train scales can be teamed with sophisticated software, weight indicators and complete traffic management solutions to measure and report on vehicles coming into and out of site.
