Elephant scales - Size is everything!

February 6, 2014

It's always good to mix business with pleasure and therefore Peter Ord, our Service Manager was pleased to be called in to assist Colchester Zoo in Essex with the repair of their platform scales that are used for weighing Tanya, their elephant.

 

 

 

 

After sorting out the cable damage on the scales, Tanya was weighed in at 3.652 tons - a fine weight!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Clive Barwick, curator at the zoo was very happy with all aspects of the job and Peter is looking forward to returning again to assist with future needs - as well as taking time to look at the fantastic variety of animals that reside there!
