KEMEK Engineering taking part in system integration in port of Ventspils
Venspils port is the largest of Latvia in terms of cargo handling and is one of Europe’s 20 most important ports for transporting a wide variety of cargoes, such as petroleum products, crude oil, various liquid chemicals, mineral fertilizers, various metals, wood products, coal, grain and juice concentrates.
As the free port is located in the immediate vicinity of the city of Ventspils, strong chemical odours are drawn into the city on some days during transport and transshipment. This was the reason for long disputes between those responsible for the free port and the inhabitants of Ventspils. They were now able to agree that the port operators will trace the origin of these smells by instaling Lufft ultrasonic wind sensors and, if they actually arise during transshipment at the free port, find a way to lead them in a different direction.
To record the strength and direction of the coastal winds, KEMEK Engineering, SIA prepared the switch cabinets so that the data from the VENTUS ultrasonic wind sensors could be read out and sent safely to the specified IP address. The company set up nine control cabinet systems and tested them. It also took care of installing them together with digital systems to detect scents in the port of Ventspils. The system transmits the measurement data directly to the customer’s website. All nine VENTUS were installed at the beginning of the year and integrated into the monitoring system. Since then, they have been running perfectly and providing plausible data.
The new kilogram definition coming soon
What is a kilogram?
The SI unit of mass, the kilogram (kg), is defined as being equal to the mass of the international prototype of the kilogram, the IPK. The origins of the kilogram date from 1799, when a cylinder of pure platinum was manufactured to have the same mass as one cubic decimetre (equivalent to a litre in today’s terms) of water at 4 ºC.
