The test facility was designed in such a way that the High Bay Storage system can be extended in the future to a large-scale store on the same premises. By the end of June 2022, 150,000 container movements had been performed under real-world operating conditions. As a result, the BOXBAY team was able to collect large volumes of data and valuable operational experience. The functionality, performance and productivity targets for the plant were achieved and verified. Energy consumption and reliability levels – especially the so-called mean-moves-between-failures (MMBF) – were also precisely measured and the system's serviceability during everyday operation was confirmed. In addition, various alternative system components were compared with each other. After just six months of testing, it was clear that the criteria for market maturity had already been met. The measured performance of all components even exceeded the expected values.
