HIGH-BAY WAREHOUSE IN SILO CONSTRUCTION METHOD

At the foot of the Karwendel mountain range in Stans, Kocher Regalbau extended a fully automated high-bay warehouse for Darbo AG by another five aisles.
The already existing high-bay silo was also realised by Kocher and was now expanded by 8.000 palette bays.

THE CUSTOMER

With sales of 140 million euros, Darbo AG achieved an increase of 1.6% in the financial year of 2018. The traditional Tyrolean family-owned company thus holds its position as number 1 in the jam and honey segment with 59.2%. Darbo is characterised by decades of tradition and high delivery quality.

THE PROJECT

In order to meet the growing demand, also on the international markets, those responsible at the management level initiated the project "High-Bay Warehouse 3", which could be handed over in October 2018 to fulfil its purpose.
In front of an impressive mountain backdrop at 563 m, the existing property has been extended by another five aisles.

THE IMPLEMENTATION

In addition to HDT Logistik Innsbruck, Kocher Regalbau relied on the proven silo construction method with 500 tonnes of cold and hot-rolled profiles. More than 100.000 screws were used for the assembly and 3 x 1.000 kg load can be taken per compartment. In parallel, two platforms for the installation of air conditioning units have been raised on the roof of the existing unit.

SPECIAL CHALLENGE

In order to take account of the required climatic conditions, a panel wall was inserted between the aisles 7 and 8. Accordingly, the racks had to be increased meticulously and assembled in a precisely defined order. Due to the spatial conditions a close coordination was required among all participants in the implementation.
