Agristo and Egemin build highest warehouse ever Handling Automation
Agristo Netherlands and Egemin Automation have closed a multimillion contract for a major automatic warehouse. The order comprises the construction and automation of an automatic deepfreeze silo warehouse for the storage of deep-frozen fries at -25 °C.

Reaching a staggering height of 40 meter the new warehouse to be built in Tilburg will be the highest automatic warehouse in The Netherlands and the Benelux. With a total width of 53 m and an aisle length of 78 m the deepfreeze warehouse will provide space for approximately 25,600 euro pallets. The projet has started in the meantime; commissioning of the complete installation is scheduled for the end of this year.

Impressive Scope

The impressive scope of the project includes eight 40-meter high pallet cranes, the conveyor systems and turntable equipment in the front zone of the warehouse and the silo construction. In addition, Egemin Automation also delivers all controls for the equipment and the higher level software for warehouse control and management (E’wcs and E’wms®). For infeed and outfeed of pallets three conveyors located on different levels will be provided; 1 will be used for infeed; two for outfeed. With this configuration Agristo and Egemin are planning to obtain peak capacities of 100 pallets IN and 240 pallets OUT per hour.

Local Representation and Professional Organisation Decisive

With only 43 km away from the new warehouse in Tilburg, Egemin has a unique location advantage over its foreign competitors with regard to service provision. The same counts for Egemin’s fully Dutch speaking project organization allowing for a perfect communication match with the customer’s. In addition to that Egemin’s many years’ of experience and expertise and the no-nonsense approach with regard to concept engineering and project philosophy ruled in favour of Egemin. And last but not least Agristo only needs to turn to one party with the one-stop-shop solution Egemin has offered.
