Co-operative Food Retail Logistics called on EnerSys to help optimise warehouse space at its new distribution centre at Birtley in County Durham by minimising the area required for charging warehouse truck batteries.

The solution was to build a three-tier battery bank - with potential to go even higher - served by an electric-powered changing cart, believed to be the first of its type in the EU to work without hydraulics.

The installation forms part of an advanced battery management system to meet the company's objectives of best practice and sustainability.

Sophisticated charging and allocation procedures as well as remote diagnostic facilities ensure efficient performance over an extensive projected working life for the batteries and warehouse trucks.
