There are more than 6000 weighbridges across Australia that are used to calculate payments in transactions for a wide range of agricultural and mineral resources as well as manufactured products.
National Measurement Institute's (NMI) compliance inspection data indicates that the accuracy of weighbridges is compromised more than any other weighing instruments currently in use for trade in Australia. This is mainly due to the environmental conditions under which the weighbridges operate.
Accordingly, the Department invites suitably qualified contractors to submit a tender for a Weighbridge Test Unit comprising: rigid body single steer bogey drive truck; body tray for the truck; and 3 axle dog trailer.
