Solas Weighing System

01 March 2018
Weighing System Solas Excessive or badly distributed loads of containers on ships were a real problem until May 2014, date of the Certified Weight introduction (VGM, Verified Gross Mass), applied by the world agency SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea). This procedure has increased the cycle times due to the movement of the containers to the certified mobile weigh stations. SOLAS COBO system solves the problem with dynamic and real-time weighing directly on reach stackers machines thanks to the saving retrofit kit consisting of pressure, inclination and length arm measure sensors, managed by a precision weighing software as required by R51 (legal for trade) standards.
