Sustainability into the future
Neuenstadt, 12/14/2021 – The diagnosis was clear: After almost 40 years of deployment and countless storage and retrieval operations in salty air conditions, it was time to replace all three stacker cranes in the high-bay warehouse of Südwestdeutsche Salzwerke AG (SWS AG) at the company’s location in Bad Reichenhall in Bavaria. The machine parts showed severe wear and spare parts were extremely difficult to obtain. Availability of the salt plant, which is operated in two shifts, could no longer be guaranteed. With this in mind, the company looked for an experienced supplier to deliver three new stacker cranes and to carry out the entire conversion project including the latest control technology and IT connections as quickly as possible.
