The company has added a new 95k m2 big facility to its logistics centre in Hedehusene.
The warehouse features the AutoStore automated robotic storage and picking solution, available to multiple users.
It also offers GMP- and GDP-certified cooling and freezing facilities, with several temperature zones extending to -80°C.
Together with Hybrid Greentech, DSV is testing a solar cell and battery solution atop the warehouse. The parties say it can cut the facility's carbon footprint by 42% relative to a scenario without the installation. Year-wise, the solution will help avoid emitting around 113t of CO2. Surplus energy can also be fed to the grid.
After the trial, DSV will decide whether to furnish its other warehouses with the solar power generation-storage system.
The German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB) has pre-certified the facility with the Silver mark.
"In the planning of the building, it has been important for us to create versatile facilities that can meet many different customer needs. In specific terms, this means that, regardless of whether the customer is a healthcare company that needs to store its products at extremely low temperatures or a fast-growing e-commerce business with a need for automated solutions, we can meet those needs," Marcel Blomjous, Managing Director of DSV Solutions Denmark, commented.
Another 38k m2 warehouse will be added to the Hedehusene complex by 2022-end, increasing its capacity to 231.5k m2.
