On Farm Anaerobic Digesters
In the second half of 2018 the Republic of Ireland is due to announce funding for on farm anaerobic digesters.
In Northern Ireland, the funding has been in place for a few years and is now coming to a close.
STL Logistics based in Mallusk Co Antrim are one of Ireland’s major transport companies and has been operating for over 35 years. Globeweigh have recently installed a logistics weighbridge with auto notification function.
The Globeweigh weighbridge was installed at the Mallusk to satisfy the requirements of a local dairy company, shipping product overseas. As part of the requirements specification the client wanted electronic notification and proof of weighing. The was achieved by installing a DD1010 weight display running on a Window CE application. This allowed Globeweigh to electronically transfer live weighing data to the client via FTP.
The system has streamlined the audit trail by reducing paperwork.
For more information on the DD1010 download the brochure.
Globeweigh has recently developed a solution for the confidential waste paper industry. Previously the weight of collected waste paper was estimated or crudely weighed using handheld scales. With traceability ever more important there needed to be a better solution for weighing confidential waste.
Globeweigh were asked by Dublin based Confidential Shredders – PULP to develop a system for weighing within the bin. Several local companies said it couldn’t be done, but Globeweigh produced a solution.
Based in Co Armagh Globeweigh manufactures a range of industrial weighing equipment, and used their experience and expertise to satisfy the client’s needs.
Now the PULP operatives can go on site and easily weigh confidential waste by simply dropping it bagged or loose into the bin containing the weighing device. The weigh is read and recorded from a digital weight display at the side of the bin. Weights can be manually recorded and also totalised automatically by the display.
After returning to base the PULP operative can tip the bin without damaging the weigher.

This is just a couple of extracts from Export and Freights Court Reports highlighting the dangers and driving with overweight vehicles.
A County Antrim operator has convicted at Antrim Magistrates’ Court and fined a total of £500 plus £31 court costs. The conviction arose when DVA Vehicle Examiners topped a 2 axle Mercedes van and directed the vehicle to the DOE weighbridge site at Toomebridge.
The vehicle was subsequently found to be overweight on the 1st axle by 344kgs (20.8%), on the 2nd axle by 511kgs (22.7%) and on its gross vehicle weight by 1,255kgs (35.8%).
The vehicle was overloaded to such an extent that it was deemed to be in a dangerous condition and it was prohibited from moving until the load was adjusted on site to the correct legal limit.
When a company director was interviewed about the offence he replied: “I didn’t know about the legal load that is allowed to be carried on a long wheel base sprinter was so low.”
A County Londonderry driver was convicted at Ballymena Magistrates’ Court and fined a total of £500 plus £34 court costs.

A County Tyrone operator was convicted at Enniskillen Magistrates’ Court and fined a total of £900 plus £31 court costs.
