The new DC uses forklifts powered by lithium-ion
Lithium-ion battery supplier Green Cubes Technology has fitted its solutions in an entire fleet for a large-scale distribution centre.  

The order from a major agricultural retailer involved over 130 class II and III batteries.

Green Cubes’ Lithium SAFEFlex battery system is now powering materials handling equipment at a new centre spanning 850,000 sqft. (78,000 sqm).  

A Green Cubes spokesperson says each lithium-ion battery is replacing two - if not three - lead-acid batteries. "Along with needing a large portion of square footage for a battery storage room with lead-acid, there could have been 260-390 lead-acid batteries needed if that route (had) been taken. The large quantity of batteries, storage room, and maintenance are all eliminated by the decision to pick Lithium SAFEFlex."

The identity of the customer and the value of the deal were not disclosed.

Green Cubes Technology is a designer and manufacturer of lithium power systems with over 30 years of successful designs by expert engineers.
