Chemical technology leader Wacker Chemie AG entrusted a Munich-based logistics specialist with the construction of a new logistics distribution centre with a six-aisle high-bay warehouse and its integration with the existing plant.
With a height of 33 m and a length of 84 m, the new high-bay warehouse provides space to store an additional 11,000 pallets. The existing eight-aisle pallet high-bay warehouse was equipped with a completely new control system which is functionally integrated into the new warehouse, improving throughput.
Notable features of the new high-bay warehouse are the extremely short six-month construction period, and a new fire-protection measure referred to as “inertisation”, which uses an oxygen-lean atmosphere which does not fight the fire but instead prevents it from developing.
