Plzeňský Prazdroj opened a new, fully automated warehouse for
CZK 780m. It has expanded the total storage capacity of the brewery
by more than 20% and the capacity of goods dispatch by 50%. The
area is 10,000 m2, the self-supporting racking system can store up
to 16,000 pallets, i.e. 18 million beers. The brewery also plans to
install photovoltaic panels on the roof, which will provide up to 30%
of the consumption. The use of tracks has reduced the need for
forklifts, which now run on electricity instead of LPG.
