Saving energy and boosting ops
12 December 2012
Vehicle manufacturer General Motors has saved energy, improved productivity and optimised line side delivery operations at its Astra plant in Ellesmere Port by switching to electric tow tractors powered by Hawker batter
"We can use the new tractors right through the shift to deliver parts to the production line without any disruption to the operations," says Richie Mellor, senior engineer at the Worldwide Facilities Group, GMM Ellesmere Port Plant.
"EnerSys and the tractor manufacturer have supplied us with a complete package that met our specification, delivered operational benefits and a number of savings."
