Swisslog starts work on automated warehouse in Dubai
09 October 2017
Mai Dubai, the Dubai-based bottled drinking water company, had commissioned Swisslog to automate its storage and distribution logistics at its new mega expansion project in Dubai in order to reach its 2020 goals.
The order value of the project amounts to 21 million US dollars. As Swisslog builds on its strengths in logistics in the food and beverage sector, this contract win is a further milestone in the automation specialist’s timeline.
The automation project will see Swisslog Middle East deliver a new automated raw and packing material warehouse, extend its production capability as well as build a high bay warehouse to store finished goods. With a height of 25 meters and a storage capacity of 17 560 pallet locations, the finished goods warehouse will provide sufficient storage space for Mai Dubai’s high volumes, while the raw material/packing material warehouse has a height of 14 meters and 5 592 pallet locations.
The Swisslog Vectura pallet stacker cranes, connected with a conveyor system, will provide highly efficient storage and retrieval. A monorail system with 44 Swisslog trolleys and a transportation length of 1 000 meters will link all areas together, including the existing production lines.
