AUMA Helps Power Station Protect Opertators
Spanning an inlet channel for tankers, the bridge is manually controlled by a hand wheel. Operation is through a worm gearbox / drive shaft to a spur gear and wheel.
The station wanted to pre-empt instances where a combination of factors, such as high winds, could
contribute to the gate being pushed to an open position.
Although not previously involved with the installation, an AUMA Sales Technician was pleased to carry out an inspection. After a site visit, an AUMA LMS anti-backdrive device was recommended to remove risk of un-controlled operations. The power station has confirmed that the solution successfully met their requirements.
