In fact, the new facility called Kloosterboer Cool Port II is an upgrade of the previous facility Kloosterboer Cool Port I.
For the records, the initiative will have a storage capacity of 60.000 pallets, which will be brought in on self-unloading or conventional trucks and then automatically taken from the shipping hall via conveyer belts, turntables and sluices to the cold-storage facility, where cranes will automatically place them in their designed position.
Furthermore the high-rise cold-storage warehouse is 35-45% more energy efficient than a conventional cold-storage facility.
Kloosterboer intends to install approximately 2,700 solar panels on the building's roof. Together with the existing solar panel installation at Cool Port I, which consists of 11,000 solar panels, this makes Kloosterboer one of the leading companies in the port of Rotterdam when it comes to generating solar power for in-house use.
