Rail transfer system
Zoeller has created a road-rail-road system that is helping the UK’s largest scrap metal company European Metal Recycling both cut costs and speed up their operation. Zoeller’s Advanced Container Transportation System (ACTS) allows one person to transfer a full container in less than two minutes without the need for a transfer station. It consists of three elements: the ‘Translift’ turntable mounted on a rail wagon; the ‘Translift’ chainlift mounted on a truck chassis and the ACTS container.
House Clearance Kirklees asks so how does it work? The container is transported by chainlift fitted truck to the railway station where a rail wagon with Translift turntable is waiting. The truck driver rotates the turntable through 45 degrees before reversing the truck towards the turntable and maneouvering the container onto a wagon with the help of the chainlift system. The whole procedure takes less than a couple of minutes and can be carried out from the drivers seat. After reversing the turntable back to its original position and locking it, the container is ready to be transported by rail. Upon arrival at its destination, the same procedure is carried out, but in reverse. Robin Sheppard, EMR’s Operations Director sums up the advantages: “There is an old road haulier adage which goes – if you’ve got it, a truck brought it in. Whilst this might be true in the majority of movements, at least there is an option now which allows rail to substitute for the great part of that journey.”
Biffa buys UK Waste for £380m
Biffa Waste Services, owned by water company Severn Trent, has bought UK Waste from Waste Management Inc. for £380m. If the sale gains government approval on competition grounds, Biffa will become the largest waste business in the UK, with the largest fleet of collection vehicles. It doesn’t end there: Severn Trent Deputy Chief Executive Robert Walker reports, “Of the possible opportunities for growing Biffa’s business in the UK there are none that offer greater potential. Buying UK Waste creates a platform for significant further growth in our waste business.” Could this mean that Biffa has its eye on further waste companies? Other implications of the sale include: – the collection depot networks and fleets will be ‘condensed’ to boost efficiency – management and administration costs (ie offices and employees) will be cut – UK Waste’s paper recycling infrastructure and Biffa’s alliance with SCA will result in a business that recycles more than 300,000 tonnes of paper per year.
