MetEngUK called in by Rio Tinto

MetEngUK called in by Rio Tinto

News Release No: 6/2012

 

MetEngUK have been called in by Rio Tinto Alcan to carry out a new weather station survey.

 

Plans are in place to convert Alcan's power station at Lynemouth, Northumberland to burn biomass fuel exclusively. During the earlier operation, when the nearby aluminium smelter depended on the power station for electricity, meteorological and other environmental parameters were measured and recorded at the smelter site, and at nearby Ashington.

 

MetEngUK have provided equipment and engineering services to Rio Tinto Alcan for a number of years, and have now been engaged to survey a new site, adjacent to the power station, for the installation of a new meteorological monitoring station.
