Contractor breaks ground on dark high-bay warehouse
09 December 2019
The coldstore will use ASRS to automatically move and store products and the equipment and operators will be directed by software systems, while products are kept in optimal conditions with all coldstore areas cooled down to temperatures as low as -23°C.
NewCold and B-Built have broken ground on NewCold’s Automated Coldstore, located in Montauban-de-Bretagne, near Rennes.
NewCold says: “This advanced cold chain solution ensures that processes are sustainable, traceable, fully integrated with the processes of NewCold’s customers and always at the very forefront of technological developments. It offers a high and consistent logistic service level and above all, offers a more sustainable and better food safety alternative than more conventional coldstore solutions.”
The state-of-the-art freezer is a joint design effort and construction by NewCold and B-Built. The facility will be one of the largest in France with a storage capacity of over 700,000 cu m comparable to the volume of one million household refrigerators.
