-23° in the refrigerated warehouse for fruits and vegetables
With the completion of Mexico's first automated refrigerated warehouse in a silo design, SSI SCHAEFER has now realised a project in the the Central American market, in this case in Aguascalientes, around 560 kilometres north west of Mexico City.
A special feature here is the static, self-supporting high bay racking system that meets all safety and building regulations for the earthquake zone for the Mexican frozen food manufacturer La Huerta.
The warehouse, which is almost 8,750 square metres in area, over 33 metres high and 140 metres long, provides space for 13,200 pallet storage spaces on eleven levels. Here the total converted space maintains a constant temperature of -23°. With up to 90 inward and outward goods movements per hour, the pallets are moved by one of three automatic storage and retrieval systems.
"The automation has meant that we can save 40 percent on personnel and reduce operating costs by 35 percent", explains Felipe Arteaga, Sales Manager at La Huerta. Arteaga estimates the monthly savings at 70,000 to 80,000 US dollars. The system costs will have been recouped within four years.
