Case Study Salvus

SSI SCHAEFER creates new logistics center for Salvus

SSI SCHAEFER creates a logistics center in a silo design for Salvus Mineralbrunnen GmbH in Emsdetten. Constant company growth and the desire for increased automation formed the foundation for the construction of the new warehouse, for which SSI SCHAEFER, as general contractor, is responsible for everything from the racking construction to the integration of automated hardware and process-supporting IT services.
Having started with mineral water in 1994, Salvus has expanded its product portfolio over the years into a wide selection of sports drinks and lemonades. To maintain the outstanding product quality and to satisfy the increased production output, the manufacturer and distributor of mineral-water products decided to construct a new warehouse and logistics system at its site in Emsdetten.

The system-provider SSI SCHAEFER impressed with an individually tailored solution that was developed and analyzed together with the customer. A 34-meter-high logistics center is being built in a silo design, where five Exyz storage-retrieval machines ensure energy-efficient double-deep storage. The high bay warehouse offers storage capacity for 15,240 pallets and is equipped with an extensive pallet conveying system. An electric monorail system completes the hardware for the automated process structure. SSI SCHAEFER's proprietary warehouse management system WAMAS® allows for interface-free warehouse management and material-flow control as well as visualization of the warehouse.

The complete solution aims to meet the growing production output with increased automation and higher warehouse capacities and to achieve shorter outbound delivery times. The centralized and reorganized logistics competencies and components will provide the well-known producer of mineral water with optimized delivery and production capabilities, as demonstrated by a high turnover performance of 300 pallets per hour.

The entire logistics center is expected to be completed in early 2018.
