Optimising energy consumption in your warehouse saveguards the environment and also reduces the operating and maintenance costs of the plant. This not only ensures a clear conscience but also secures your long-term investment.
With expert knowledge and many years of experience, SSI SCHAEFER facilitates the implementation of energy-efficient storage right from the planning of the logistics and the facility. Thanks to our unique and wide range of intralogistics services, we think in systems and complete solutions that assure your success both efficiently and long-term.
A selction of topics on which we provide consulting and that we implement together with you:
- Site selection
Where is the facility located with regard to your customers, does it have the necessary infrastructure? Which distances need to be covered?
- Site optimisation
Are all the existing spaces and buildings being used efficiently?
- What does the overall energy balance look like?
- Use of renewable energies
What are the options regarding photovoltaics, geothermics or solar thermals?
Have energy-saving lights been installed? Is there a concept for security lighting?
Are there any reasonable additional extras such as pellet heating, district heating from bio gas plants or black lights?
- Building activities
Is there a feasible energy-optimised design for the roof and facade that could be realised? Are the gates, doors and locks sufficiently insulated?
Energy efficiency right from the start
When planning and implementing an SSI SCHAEFER warehouse and order picking system, energy efficiency is also a fixed part of the system planning work.
