NINA at Work - November 2011

With NINA, people commit to safety

In Poland, Boskalis is preparing a site for the construction of a new LNG terminal, performing various tasks in collaboration with three other contractors. Together, they represent ten different nationalities. To ensure everyone is on the same page in terms of
safety, Boskalis has introduced NINA within the joint venture.

NINA gives the green light to dumpers

Boskalis BV has developed a new system to prevent trucks from becoming overloaded. Three lights are installed on the side of the dumper, which are connected to the truck’s weighing device. Once the cargo is loaded, the green lights go on and as the loader approaches the critical weight, the lights turn orange. That’s when it’s time to stop loading. And when the lights turn red, then you know the dumper is overloaded!
