Huge Cold Storage Facility Set to Open
As reported by Process Cooling in February 2017, NewCold is building one of the largest cold storage facilities in the country. Now, according to a local report, the 25 million ft3 warehouse is set to open in Tacoma, Wash., with full operations expected by the end of the year.
The multi-customer coldstore will enable food producers, including Trident Seafoods, to optimize their cold-chain management with increased agility and responsiveness. The 140’ tall facility will utilize automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS) to automatically move and store products in the dark high-bay warehouse. Equipment and operators will be directed by advanced software systems. Food will be stored at -5°F (-20.5°C) in a low oxygen environment to prevent fires.
