Hansen Transmissions International is market leader in the production of gear units and drive solutions for a wide range of applications from water purification systems and industrial mixers to wind turbines. Egemin has a close relationship with Hansen Transmissions and had been contracted twice in the past for the automation of warehouses where the gear units for wind turbine generators are manufactured.
The project scope includes three new warehouses and 1 AGV zone:
- 1 AGV system for transport of heavy components up to 12 tons from the logistic hub to assembly
- 1 warehouse with 1 pallet crane for storage of large products
- 1 warehouse with 4 pallet cranes for storage of medium-sized articles
- 1 warehouse with storage elevators for smaller products
Egemin’s warehouse management system E’wms® will take care of the management of the three warehouses and the location management of the AGV system. The entire installation should be operational by the end of 2007.
