(PresseBox) - A day of festivity marked the HARTING Technology Group''s official inauguration of its European Distribution Center (EDC) in Espelkamp. Up to 20,000 order items will be processed here on a daily basis, with goods to be dispatched to customers on the day of their order. Costing an estimated ? 45 million, the EDC logistics centre is the largest single investment in the 74-year history of HARTING.

Roughly 10,000 packages can be shipped to customers and branches around the world on a daily basis. The 20-metre-high shelf warehouse can accommodate approx. 7,000 pallets and 120,000 containers. Installation work involved laying 100 kilometres of IT cabling, 40 kilometres of sprinkler piping and container conveyor technology with a total length of 1,000 metres. 2,000 containers can be taken in and out of the warehouse every hour. Technical highlights include the highly-automated picking system and the storage area, which is optimally managed and efficiently utilised according to the respective order load and capacity. HARTING technology can be seen as soon as you enter the premises, whereby approaching vehicles are recognised and the barrier lifted upon granting of access. RFID technology ensures that pallets are correctly placed and loaded.

Great emphasis was also placed on generating a sustainable energy supply. The power for the European Distribution Center is supplied by a photovoltaic system installed on the roof, while the energy requirements for cooling and heating are covered by internally produced biomethane and a geothermal plant ? for which 36 holes needed to be drilled to a depth of 150m. The implemented energy concept minimises the Co2 emissions. The cost of the entire centre came in 27 percent lower than the figure originally calculated by the Kreditanstalt f

The offices and social spaces, reception, bistro with terrace and seating areas are all bright and friendly. With its white facade, the EDC is widely visible on its 8-hectare site on the L 770 in northwest Eselkamp.
