FRIGO C Logistics opens a 3rd cold store at Hamburg [GCTL Insights Magazine (China)]
(GCTL Insights Magazine (China) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) HAMBURG, May 15 (GCTL) - With an inauguration ceremony FRIGO Coldstore Logistics opened a third cold store in the Port of Hamburg on May 13, 2014.
When the building is completed in August 2014 the company will offer a total cool capacity of 40,000 pallet positions on 18,000 sq. metres. The extension was necessary due to the continuous increase in customer demand for deep freeze capacity.
The storage extension will also provide extra office space and 12 new jobs at FRIGO, the number of staff at present is 38 including 4 vocational trainees and will probably rise to 50. In 2005 FRIGO began business in their present location in Altenwerder, Hamburg with a completely new deep freeze storage concept in two temperature zones and the accompanying office building.
Already in 2008 they had to increase capacity. From the very beginning great value was put on implementi ng as high as possible energy efficiency and utilizing all cutting - edge alternatives to save energy, from insulation to cooling technology.
Part of the electricity is generated by their own solar arrays on the warehouse roof, which will possibly in future be used directly in the cold storage system. In the new third building phase the benchmark for an especially energy efficient building should be undercut once again by 20 percent; using intelligent LED lighting activated on demand by a motion control system and especially efficient space - saving concept facilitating stacking up to eight levels.
