Consoveyo Installs ASRS Warehouse for Leading Chemical Specialties Developer

Systems integrator helps ensure safe transport and storage of chemicals

Consoveyo Singapore Pte Ltd. (Consoveyo), part of Körber Logistics Systems, today announces its new partnership with a leading chemical specialties producer to provide intralogistics in their expanding facility on Jurong Island, Singapore. The project includes material flow planning and a logistics concept, as well as a highly customised explosion-proof automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS) solutions to service the new warehouse.

The chemical specialties developer’s expansion plans called for new capabilities to store more raw materials, finished goods, and work-in-progress (WIP) materials that are undergoing curing and settling processes. The company was also looking to achieve higher throughput capacity, redundancy in its automated flow lines, and a larger storage volume within a relatively small footprint.

To cater to the chemical company’s needs, Consoveyo will deliver a 42-metre-high ASRS high-bay warehouse comprising four sets of double-deep stacker cranes, aisle racking, and Rail Guided Vehicles (RGVs), as well as high speed doors, conveyors, and a full suite of warehouse management software in this turnkey project. Together, Consoveyo’s proposed system offers the user a total of 10,240 pallet locations that is seamlessly connected, yet safely controlled and separated, from production to storage areas.

Making use of a nitrogen-enriched inerting system and 12 sets of high-speed shutter doors, Consoveyo designed a warehouse that allows its customer to safely host WIP materials while preventing safety hazards such as contamination, combustion, and spoilage. In addition, to ensure the sustainability of the warehouse, all equipment are fitted with power regenerative features.

Poul Lorentzen, General Manager of Consoveyo, highlighted, “This project is a significant addition to our growing list of references in Southeast Asia. Intralogistics solutions providers for the chemical industry have to meet high demands and strict requirements, as chemical specialties require special care in handling, transporting, and storing. This partnership showcases Consoveyo’s expertise in designing customised, first-in-class automated warehousing solutions, and demonstrates our ability to support different clients in various industries.”
