Reducing energy use in chilled warehouse
The Brakes Brothers Food Group added a sustainable new-built distribution centre in Glasgow, to their chilled distribution network. The facility is kept at a constant temperature of 4 degrees Celsius, and before settling on a docking solution an investigation into facilitating substantial reductions in energy usage was undertaken. Preventing avoidable energy loss through doors and dock levelers was one of the deciding factors.
Estimated savings of 589,000 kwh per year
