Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE) has contracted Beamex (UK), based in Newtown Unthank, Leicestershire to supply calibration equipment for Peterhead Power Station.



Peterhead is Scotland’s largest power station, capable of creating 2407MW from North Sea gas.



Beamex supplied its MCS100 Calibration Workstation, which incorporates panel mounted pressure, electrical and temperature calibration instrumentation, to SSE. The equipment includes automatically controlled pressure and temperature sources, digital multimeters, soldering equipment, air amplifier and vacuum generator built into a robust, heavy duty workbench.



Gordon Shand, C&I team leader at Peterhead, said that the automated calibration process, seamless electronic flow of data between measurement devices, and electronically stored calibration would bring efficiency gains to the plant.
