Optimised warehouse facilities
The most effective way for Velox to save energy in its warehouses is to make use of all the possible space. THis means minimising the amount of space wasted by aisles between shelves and increasing the height of the warehouse space. The warehouses also have separate shelves for small items according to the purpose of use.
We use smart control in our technical building services. The warehouses are heated using air-source heat pumps programmed to provide heat during the night when the load on the electricity grid is lower. Significant amounts of electrity can be saved by lighting only the areas that are in use at the time automatically as personnel move from one warehouse area to another. Goods are always loaded and unloaded in an area protected from the adverse effects of the weather. About our warehouses
