Project Description

FRIGOSTAHL S.A. undertook the expansion of the existing facilities of HELLENIC DAIRIES SA –
“OLYMPOS” in Makrychori Larissa, with the construction of a new building for refrigeration and
storage, office spaces, chiller plant and auxiliary areas with a total surface area of 8.900 m². The
work also involved exterior landscaping (8.000 m² plot), building construction works and complete
electromechanical installations such as HVAC, fire extinguishing and fire detection.

In cooperation with an Italian firm, the specifications of the cold store building were set in order to
install a fully integrated logistics system linking the automatic palletizing and high-speed robotic stretch
wrapping and labelling machines at the end of the production line with the unmanned laser guided
vehicles (LGVs), the automatic pallet picking and repacking system in the three refrigeration chambers and
finally the automatic preparation of goods for truck loading.

The above system is controlled by a specially designed software tailored to the customer’s needs.

In order to provide cooling power and fully automatic operation of the 3 refrigeration chambers where staff
access is not possible, “Insulated coolers” were chosen, which are located outside the refrigeration chambers,
recirculate the cold air through special insulated air ducts and adjustable orifices and are also isolated from
the refrigeration chamber during defrosting.

 

Highlights
  • Working alongside a foreign firm supplying the automated logistics system.
  • Compliance with strict international standards in construction.
  • Operation of unmanned laser guided vehicles (LGVs).
  • Fully automatic robot palletizing system.
  • Bespoke software design, tailored to the customer’s needs.
  • “Insulated coolers” type of air coolers were used.
