The huge group in attendance at the latest Ireland North project was rewarded to an exclusive tour of the new NIFRS workshop.

As part of the unique technical lecture for the centre in November, online fleet management software provider Truckfile and wheel servicing company Pro-Align both provided presentations to the audience.

Due to the massive interest in the local event, groups had to be split into three smaller parties, each taking their turn to hear from the speakers.

Colin Beck from NIFRS explained how the new workshop will strengthen the service provision, as breathing apparatus testing, hose repair and vehicle cleaning facilities were all significantly upgraded.

Pro-Align demonstrated its wheel alignment systems, which can be used for heavy commercial vehicles and cars. The demo included a floor-mounted tyre pressure and tread depth machine. Shane McGinty from Pro-Align explained how the Hunter wheel alignment system allows an inspection to take place without the need to attach sensors or targets.

Completing the presentation was Truckfile, a specialist in compliance systems for commercial vehicle fleet management. Paul Whittingham from Truckfile demonstrated how the software worked when conducting an inspection and showed the many uses of the collected on-screen data and utilisation of the system for inspection, service, repair, scheduling and compliance. 

It was another highly successful event for the 2017 region of the year, Ireland North.
