Dubai power plant job for laser specialist

The LaseWVI (waste volume incinerator) system is used to measure the volume in the bunkers of the incinerators in order to monitor the throughput of the bunkers and use that data in the power plant management system.


A 2D-laser scanner is attached to the portal of the crane and the data from the laser scanner is supplied to a LASE Control Unit (LCU). A 2D profile of the bunker is built up by the laser scanner and in connection with the position of the crane a 3D profile of the bunker will be generated.


The bunker is divided into fields similar to a chessboard and the measuring system then provides the minimum, maximum or average value of the height in each chessboard field.


It is also possible that several crane installations in the same bunker can also work together whereby each crane is equipped with a laser scanner.


In total, the software can accommodate up to four bunkers, and it is possible to run a Bunker Management software for the organisation of waste bunkers.


An additional collision avoidance system is also available in order to contribute to decreased risks of crane failure while in (automated) operation and improved safety for personnel and equipment.


LASE said the common system features of LaseWVI comprise:

  • Optimal charging and debris mining in the storage area.
  • Exact illustration of the mound profile
  • Large range (80 m).
  • Several crane installations can be equipped in parallel.
  • Multi-shelf-life.
  • Rugged construction type.
