GERMANY: Viessmann Refrigeration Solutions has partnered with Noyes Technologies to develop an innovative, modular and fully automated refrigeration for the NoyesStorage system.
With the growth of Q-Commerce business, it is essential to store a large variety of products with complex requirements in a confined space. Suppliers are faced with a particularly difficult challenge given strict specifications for the storage of groceries. Munich-based Noyes Technologies offers an answer with its compact, modular storage solutions for smaller, typically urban, spaces.
Refrigeration is one of the biggest challenges. Compliance with the cold chain must be ensured, perishable products such as fresh meat and dairy products must be constantly checked for their best-before date, and different environments must be maintained for individual product groups. In high-rent urban storage areas, storage systems should additionally be as space efficient as possible.
The innovative refrigeration system, which incorporates Viessmann’s expertise in refrigeration with the automatised warehouse solution from Noyes, provides an answer to these challenges. The modular design enables the storage system to be assembled according to the customer’s individual requirements and with a precise fit. Furthermore, accurate product storage temperatures can be specified individually ensuring food safety compliance by cooling individual units.
The partners say the automated nano-warehouse will be developed to have minimum ecological impact, based on “natural” refrigerants, and ensuring energy optimisation.
“Until now, there has been no solution on the market to store different products with varying temperature requirements in a confined space and in an energy-efficient, flexible way,” said Marco Prueglmeier, co-founder and CEO of Noyes. “By partnering with Viessmann, we are now developing a revolutionary system with measurable added value for customers.”
The offering is expected to be available by next year.
