STORAGE FOR 17,500 TONNES OF
POTATO PRODUCTS AT -25°C
The eight stacker cranes will be responsible for the automated storage of 24,500 euro pallets, or almost 17,500 tonnes of frozen potato products at temperatures of -25°C. The new warehouse will be able to process 360 pallet movements per hour. "Since Agristo produces seven days a week and has a logistics department that operates 16 hours a day, five days a week, large buffers must be processed quickly," says Carmen Wallays. Fast dispatch is also important, so that trucks can be loaded quickly and no time will be lost this way.
The clad rack structure of the new deepfreeze warehouse is specifically designed to be durable in its use of energy. All installed cranes are equipped with an internal energy recovery system and the energy released during lowering and braking of the cranes is recovered and used for lifting and driving movements. Other partners in the project are Synergo, Stow, Alheembouw, Cofely Axima and Isocab Construct.
