Truck and Rail Weighbridges in Ameropa Grains Bases
Ameropa Grains, one of the main players in the grain storage and processing market, requested the installation of rail weighbridges in its silage bases in the country. They also requested the modernisation of their existing weighbridges, but - due to the intense use regime and their age - they presented various dysfunctions or structural problems. The works covered 4 bases in the counties of Ialomița, Călăraşi, Olt and Argeş, and will continue in 2023 with works in bases in the rest of the country.
The installed rail weighbridges were installed in a prefabricated concrete foundation, Scaleit supplying these weighbridges "on a turnkey basis" (respectively Scaleit supplied the weighbridge, the foundation and carried out the assembly and installation work on the broken stone bed of the railway embankment).
In the bases where the structure of the load receiver of the weighbridge was strongly affected by its age and intensive use, Scaleit decided to completely replace the roadway and recondition the beams of the resistance structure. The roadway was designed from precast concrete slabs, in order to minimise scale downtime when replacing the old structure. The adopted solutions led to the complete refurbishment of some rickety weighbridges, and their transformation into new ones, ready for long-term use.
Works on the Ameropa project will continue in 2023, with new foundations requiring Scaleit's services and scales.
