TITLE  
Marine aggregates cargo calculator
ARTICLE
DESCRIPTION

One of the most potentially dangerous tasks on board a marine aggregate dredger is entering the cargo hopper to calculate the quantity of material that has been dredged. The operator has to manually measure the distance between the top of the hold and the top of the cargo. He is exposed to the risk of falling from height and cargo collapse.

Hanson’s marine aggregate business has developed a laser to calculate the cargo. The task can be undertaken by one man from outside the hold.

BENEFITS

• Removed hazards from entering the hold
• More efficient as only one man required for job
• Much more accurate calculation of cargo volume
